Our Goose is Cooked

11 posts in this topic

Here's our worst nightmare, which I'm sure no one on this forum has had to deal with. I'm in the U.S. and my wife is in Thailand. All she needs is to download and fill out the DS-260, which she did and got the confirmation page. Unfortunately she downloaded the wrong form - the DS-160, a nonimmigrant form. Our only hope, slim as it is, is to pray some entity will allow us to cancel that form and download the DS-260. If anyone has any suggestion as to what we should do, please let me know.

Just do the DS260.   You don't have to do anything with the DS-160.

 

You don;t pay anything until you get to the consulate.

o.k., great! Now, can someone give me the exact link to download the DS260, since I've run into blind alleys in the past few days trying to find it, even though I click USCIS sites that don't lead me there.

DS-260: https://ceac.state.gov/IV/Login.aspx

You will need your case number to proceed.

It is a form you complete electronically.

 

You are now dealing with visas, which are part of the Department of State (DOS). USCIS no longer is involved with the case.

Here's the latest in The Perils of Pauline mystery tour. Yes, she did receive a confirmation receipt that refers to her DS-160 form. Then she sent me a photo of her Immigrant Visa and Alien Registration Application Confirmation - her DS- 260!  I saw it and read it! Talk about dodging a bullet! Thanks for all your helpful comments

So she filled out and submitted a non-immigrant DS-160. Then logged in with her case number and filled out and submitted a DS-260? There is no way to fill out a DS-160 and submit it and then get a confirmation for a DS-260. Im not following at all what you are saying

No, she did NOT fill out a 160. I concluded that she did, because she got a confirmation receipt that referred to her 160 application. I have no idea where that confirmation came from. She DID fill out the 260, because they sent her a confirmation letter to that effect.

Let me get this straight

You posted yesterday she accidentally "downloaded" a DS-160 and got a confirmation receipt for a DS-160 but actually got a letter confirming the DS-260.

 

Then 9 hours ago you created a post saying she is bringing documents to the embassy on tuesday

 

Then 5 hours ago you posted that her case in CEAC is showing complete and if she can book an interview

 

Are you trolling?
