For Employment and Family-based Preference Immigrants

You DO NOT need to use this form to request an immigrant visa appointment if you are applying for an employment or family-based preference visa based on a petition filed in the United States. If you need to change the appointment date, you may use this form.

The NVC will schedule an appointment on the monthly visa allotment basis. You will be informed of the date and time of your interview.

Please note, however, that there is no reason to expect that a visa allocation will be available for you if your application is not processed to conclusion during the month of the originally scheduled visa interview.

Important: Please provide your case number exactly as shown on the prior notice of appointment.

We conduct interviews on a varied schedule, excluding U.S. and Japanese holidays.

Each applicant, regardless of their age, must have their own DS-260. The DS-260 must be completed and submitted online before requesting your interview.
