The Department of State (Department) will no longer be using paper forms to apply for immigrant visas, and instead will implement an online application.  Effective September 3, 2013, paper forms DS-230  and DS-3032 will be replaced with the online DS-260 and DS-261.  All applicants with the exception of Diversity Visa and Cuban Family Reunification Parole applicants will be required to use the online forms.  The Department has advised that some applicants who previously submitted Form DS-230 may be asked to submit Form DS-260.  

The move to the online immigrant visa forms comes as the next step in the Department’s plan to implement a more secure and efficient system for applying for immigrant visas.
