<B2 tourist visa><Filled DS160 before 1 year><Question about DS160 and paid visa fees>

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

 

I need some help about my parents visa. I am planning to invite my parents to US from India on B2 tourist visa. I have filled their DS160 in Dec 2014 and then paid the visa fees. After that, I scheduled the appointments in January 2015. But I need to reschedule the appointments several times and now I am not able to see the appointment details. Looks like it’s been 1 year, so there receipt is expired and I need to pay the visa fees one more time. Is this true that visa fees get expired if did not schedule visa appointment within 1 year?

Also another question is can I use the same DS160 form that I filled 1 year before or I need to fill new DS160?

 

Thank you for your replies.

You need to fill a new DS-160 and also pay fees. The fees expires if the interview is not scheduled within 1 year. Ex: If you pay fees on 01-01-2015. Your interview date needs to be before 01-01-2016.

Thank you for these inputs. Do I need to do anything with old DS160 like delete it or remove it? Because I dont want to have two DS160 for one person's same visa. Thank you.

You do not have to do anything with your old DS160. It will remain in the State Dept database. There is no problem with having multiple DS160s since a new one gets submitted each time you apply for a visa. You can use your old DS160 application ID to create a new DS160 and save some in filling the form.
