Effective Immediately, the Department of State has just informed JCS Immigration and Visa, a Los Angeles based US Immigration Attorney’s office, that the DS-160 Nonimmigrant Visa Electronic Application will replace the DS-156 Electronic Visa Application form (EVAF), the DS-156k (Nonimmigrant Fiance Visa Application), and the paper-based DS-230 application for Immigrant Visa and Alien Registration (parts I and II) for processing K-1 and K-2 nonimmigrant visa (NIV) applications.
It is mandatory that every new K Visa case worldwide must use Form DS-160. K-1 and K-2 visas may only be processed at IV-processing posts. K-3 and K-4 Visas may be processed at any NIV-issuing post using the normal NIV processing procedure.
DS-160s will not be required for beneficiaries of cases that have already been scheduled for an interview or have been interviewed and are pending additional documentation or administrative processing. From this date forward, NVC will not accept DS-260s under any circumstances.
