Hello, I was wondering if its possible to unlock the DS-260?

 

 I've read different things on google. Some say yes and some say no its impossible and to wait till your interview to fix anything. 

 

1. If its unlocked do you have to start everything over? Or does it save everything and it make it where you can just edit things? 

 

2. Do you contact your embassy in the country your in?

 

3.And how do you contact them? Via phone or email?

 

4. Which services department in the embassy do you contact to unlock it?

 

5. How long did it take to unlock your DS-260? Whats everyone's experiences in this matter? 

 

Also how recent was your experiences if you were successful in unlocking the DS-260? Was it years ago or recent? 

 

Thank you for reading this.

You can call the NVC.  If your case is already at the embassy or consulate you cannot have it unlocked.  Any mistakes you made should be mentioned at interview and corrected at that time if you're past the unlocking stage at NVC

I tried to unlock our DS-260 to fix a minor mistake.  I sent a request through the AskNVC messaging system.  I got a response 7 weeks after I submitted the request:

 

Dear Sir/Madam:

 

We received your inquiry regarding missing, incomplete, or incorrect information on the DS-260 (Online Immigrant Visa Application and Registration Form) submitted online. Unfortunately we are unable to reopen the form for corrections at this time.

 

At the time of the applicant's interview, you may notify the consular officer of any information which you were unable to modify in the DS-260 form.

 

We didn't need to bring up the error during the interview.

I don't know if it is? All I've submitted was my DS-260 and Civil Documents for the IV. I haven't submitted my I-864 and financial documents yet. So does this mean its at the NVC still? 

 

Thank you for your reply and helping me.

If you have not yet submitted the I-864 and financial documents to support the I-864, your file is still at NVC.  They cannot complete the review of your documents and schedule an interview until you have sent or uploaded everything and paid all the fees.  So do that first, and then correct any issues with the DS-260 at the interview.

No.  We were still very much at the NVC stage.  It was just a day after I had submitted the DS-260 when we thought we made an error.  I think at that point, we had only uploaded some financial docs.

 

So, it was still early in the process; no docs submitted.  To be frank, it's useless trying to get NVC to unlock the DS-260.

It takes a lot of effort. Normally a supervisor review.

It is generally best to bring up errors at interview.  To not do so puts you at risk for misrepresentation.
