Puerto Rico is a tropical paradise, located in the Caribbean, east of the Dominican Republic, that welcomes tourists with unbelievably beautiful beaches and plenty of activities to engage in. It is definitely a destination that you should go to!

Filling out the DS-160 form properly is the most important element of the application that will definitely increase your approval chances of getting your Puerto Rico B1/B2 Visa for the first time or renewing it successfully.

That's why at iVisa, we not only created a simplified DS-160 form by making it 50% shorter, faster, and very easy to answer; we also assign you an iVisa Expert who will guide you throughout the process from start to end, and help you avoid rejections.
