Every Applicant Must Submit a Separate DS-160 Form

If several members of a family or group apply for a U.S. visa, a separate DS-160 form is required for each applicant, independent of age.  Applicants have two options:

  • Fill out a new DS-160 form for each applicant; or
  • Fill out an initial DS-160 form and follow the instructions on the “thank you” page at the end of the form for creating a family or group application.

When you select this option, certain information from the initial application, such as destination, will automatically be imported to and displayed on a new application. Please note that if you use this option you must still create an individual application for each family member or for each individual within the group.  Information on the DS-160 form is available at the State Department’s travel website.
