DS-260 Replacing DS-230 for Selected Embassies

28 Jul 2011

At selected U.S. embassies the old DS-230 Application for Immigrant Visa and Alien Registration is being replaced by an electronic version of the form the State Department is calling the DS-260.

Here is what the State Department says about the DS-260:

DS-260: Online Immigrant Visa Application (NEW: Limited Use): Required for visa applicants to apply at selected U.S. Embassies and Consulates after National Visa Center notification. This web-based electronic form will eventually replace the current Form DS-230, Application for Immigrant Visa. The roll-out of the new DS-260 will be gradual. Therefore, not all immigrant visa applicants will be required to use the new form at the same time. Go to Online DS-260 guidance for more information.

Currently, only the following embassies are using the DS-260:

    • Montreal, Canada
    • Athens, Greece
    • Amman, Jordan
    • Baghdad, Iraq
    • Lima, Peru

According to the State Department the DS-260 will eventually be implemented worldwide and replace the DS-230.
