Although the order of these steps may differ in different embassies and consulates, it will still be necessary to go through them all:

Fill in the online nonimmigrant visa application form

For this you will need to upload your photo. If possible, take a photo in a professional studio specializing in visa photos. Make sure that the picture meets the requirements for the photos set out on the site.

Fill out the DS-160 form and print a confirmation page to bring it for an interview.

Schedule an interview

Contact the US embassy or consulate in your country to schedule an interview. His website should contain detailed information about this, including office hours. Be sure to find out the waiting time for the embassy or consulate where you will be interviewed.

Pay for visa application processing

Some embassies and consulates require payment before the interview. When your visa is approved, you may also need to pay a visa fee. You should find out exactly which charges apply in your case.

Prepare the required documents.

Make sure you have the following documents:

- a passport for travel to the United States, which will expire no earlier than six months after the end of your planned stay in the United States;

- Form DS-160 confirmation page that you printed after completing the online application;

- a receipt for payment of the visa application fee, if you need to submit it before your interview;

- photo - if you were unable to upload a photo when filling out the online application, you will have to bring a printed photo in the format described here;

- all additional documentation required by your embassy or consulate. This may include a statement of the purpose of your trip and your intention to leave the United States at the end of your visit. You may also be asked to provide proof of your ability to pay the cost of the trip. The website of your embassy or consulate should list additional documents you may need.

Come to the interview

On the website of your embassy or consulate, please read possible specific instructions on how to arrive at the interview. Be sure to be on time, carrying with you all the necessary documentation.

During the interview, the consular officer will determine whether you are eligible for a visa, and if so, which category of visa will suit you based on the purpose of your trip.

As part of the application process, you will be fingerprinted by electronic scanning without using ink. This is usually done during the interview, but the order depends on where you get the visa.
