Chris Musillo on Nurse and Allied Health Immigration


Rating: 10 votes, 4.50 average.
by Chris Musillo

The Department of State (DOS) is replacing the DS-230 with the new electronic DS-260. Beneficiaries submitting new cases that arrive at the National Visa Center (NVC) from U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) on or after September 1 will be instructed to complete the DS-260 instead of the DS-230. Like the DS-230, the DS-260 is valid for one year from the date of the oath. After the oath expires, the DS-260 will automatically unlock and DOS officers will tell the applicant to update and resubmit the DS-260. The DOS has published a FAQ on their webpage.

The DOS will not require DS-260s for beneficiaries of "pipeline" cases already in process at NVC on September 1 if: 1) the case has already been documentarily qualified and sent to scheduling, or 2) NVC receives a single submission of documents that makes a case documentarily qualified.

For all other pipeline cases where NVC has occasion to send a "checklist" of missing documents after September 1, NVC will instruct petitioners/agents/beneficiaries to submit the DS-260 along with those missing documents, even if a DS-230 was already on file. Those filing petitions locally overseas (with either USCIS or a consular section) on or after September 1 must submit a DS-260 once the petition is approved.

    I saw this on the uscis site -

    DS-230: Application for Immigrant Visa and Alien Registration (Diversity Visa and Cuban Family Reunification Parole applications only)

    Since it states that the form is for Diversity Visa and Cuban Family Reunification Parole applications only, is this really the correct DS-230 for other nationalities?

    Hi Lin,

    The DS 260 is used for other nationalities.

    I recently paid the application fee for immigration visa and on the receipt, it says,

    When the IV fee payment status is PAID, each applicant must submit an Application for Immigrant Visa and Alien Registration. If your case was initiated after October 4, 2010 and your case number begins with AMM, ATH, BGH, LMA, MEP, or MTL you must submit your visa application form online. Otherwise you must submit the paper version of the form.

    My case number starts with SEO. Can I use DS-260, the online form? According to this, I must submit the paper form.

    I just got an email from the nvc on the 15 of july stating my interview time and date. the problem is, the date is after my 21st birthday! I called the embassy to reschedule an earlier date, but they said that they are unable to reschedule and i should remain with the date i received. I am so upset and confused at the same time. Should i be worried its schedule after my 21st birthday? :-(

    Do you know more details as to when the ds260 expires? Will NVC schedule an interview for a DS260 that would expire by the interview date, but not the date they schedule?
