On the other hand, the B2 Category is for people traveling to the US for tourism, pleasure, or medical treatment.

What it takes to get a US Tourist Visa from India

A DS-160 non-immigrant form is used for temporary visits to the United States for foreign nationals, such as Indian citizens.

The information of the visa applicant on the DS-160 form will be used to process the US visa application, combined with a visa interview.

What are the requirements for an online DS-160 form?

You don't have to meet many requirements for the DS-160 form. All you need to provide is:

  • An applicant photo: Along with the application form, you must upload a picture of yourself. You must upload a recent photo that meets the government requirements, and print it to bring to the visa appointment. If you dont have one you can use our passport photo service to obtain one.
