Visa Class Information
Please clarify which visa category is the correct one for your proposed travel. This information is required to complete the DS-160 Application Form. Some categories, such as temporary workers and foreign media (H1B, L, P, O, and I visas), are actually a subcategory of the choice “other” in the drop-down menu. Please read about the different visa categories to learn exactly how to select your specific visa category on the DS-160. Note: If you select the wrong visa class, you may be required to fill out a new application form.
