4. Complete the DS-160 form

Link here for the DS-160 form online. Allow yourself about 1 hour to complete this DS-160 form. I completed all the DS forms for myself, husband and Aisyah (baby pun kene). At the final section, dia akan tanya if anyone ada assist you in completing the form..pandai2 la nak jawab apa ek. Selalunya that section maybe untuk orang yang nak pergi US but not very conversant in English kot.

Security questions dia ada around 20 q's kot..! Banyak gila..


Antara soalan2 yang dia tanya orang yang apply visa B1: social visit (tourism): nama mak bapak, birthdates diorang, current employment, previous employment, have you been overseas for the past 12 months, nama current boss, nama previous boss in prev employment..jenuh jugak i tanya sume details2 itu from my husband. Since I was applying for B2 visa (business), soalan dia agak lain..tp it's so subtle I pun dah lupa apa beza dia..

Once you complete the DS-160 form, you will obtain an Application ID. Page tu kene print untuk bawak masa interview.







5. Create your account dalam US visa punya system, schedule appointment and add dependent if applicable

Kat sini untuk create account. Kat dalam account ni, you can view your payment status. Make sure kat dalam tu dia dah update yang u dah bayar duit visa kat Standard Chartered bank tu. Also you need to update your profile.

Two important parts dalam link ni are: schedule your appointment and add your dependent. Kat sini you can view empty slots for each day and book online. Walaupun dalam website dia akan kata boleh call to make appointment, however through my experience, walaupun dah call, dia akan kata suruh access internet jugak untuk view available slots. Penat aja call..dah la lama.

Add your dependent: kalau nak pegi interview sekali dengan orang lain (esp family members, maybe boleh utilize jugak utk colleagues for the same business trip kot), make sure guna feature ni. I learnt my lesson..kerana nak cepat dapat interview slot, I terus schedule appointment without adding a dependent (sebab nak my husband interview sekali with me). Reason is because I belum isi borang DS-160 dia..and it will take about an hour or so untuk lengkapkan borang dia pulak.

Lepas tu baru I realized that kalau kita dah confirm appointment slot, you cannot go back and add a dependent. If you want to add a dependent, you have to cancel your slot;..pastu baru repeat the process. Kalau dah cancel slot, tak jamin la dapat slot yang sama atau yang dalam masa terdekat kan..

BUT .. if your appointment yg dah confirm tu is in less than 24 hrs, tak boleh nak cancel dah..Kalau nak "cancel" jugak, you can opt utk tak datang pada hari appointment, dia akan kira sbg "no show". No show ok je, tp kalau 3x no show, u punya application akan cancel n duit visa feee akan burn.

6. Pegi visa interview

So in the end I went asing dengan my husband..I pegi dulu, and the next week, my husband pulak. I was surprised jugak la..tempat US embassy tu, tiap2 hari I lalu situ dari rumah tapi tak penah tau that that is the US embassy..tak de signboard apa sume..tembok tinggi.. I never know! I pun tau sket2 yang dia takde signboard and no indication coz I read from one of the blogs..I cuma nampak ada ramai orang beratur kat depan..so agak2 je la tu US embassy haha.

Dia kat Jalan Tun Razak.. kalau cam sekaran g ni, depan Naza TTDI punya project..kat depan dia ada banner 'The Where's Where for the Who's Who' tu.. temporary banner while the project still undergoing construction.

It is at the Jalan Tun Razak side yang menghala ke Cheras. It is just before Mercedes punya showroom (Mercedes or VW or Volvo..adoi tak ingat).

I park dekat jalan in between embassy and showroom tu..free je parking. eventhough ada orang kata kene bayar, so check2 la dulu kalau tak sure. Coz I tak sure..My hubby pun tak bayar jugak. Takde pun kene saman la..

The downside of pegi asing2 for interview ni was my husband was being asked kenapa tak pergi sama with me, the fact that we are going to US together. Penat Hubby had to explain why..benda camtu pun suspicious..

7. Collecting your visa

You can opt to self collect kat Wisma MCA Jalan Ampang, or by post. Opening hours is 8.30-12.30 and 1.30-4.30 pm. If you passed the visa interview, you will be given a small card untuk bawak waktu collect visa.

Kat Wisma MCA tu, you need to register kat tempat guard.. parking was OK banyak space jugak, but the autopay was hampeh..By the time I'm writing, autopay dia ada masalah tak terima coins. And worse, it will not give change (kene bayar exact fee). 30 minit kena bayar RM 1.50, so be prepared la untuk bawak exact change. I terkejar2 jugak la carik duit exact..last2 I was directed to parking services untuk bayar manually..

Tempat untuk collect visa is Level 19. You need to register dekat guard at Level 19 lagi..pastu kene simpan beg dekat locker depan guard. Jangan le bawak barang berharga. When I got out after collect visa, takde pun guard yang jaga beg I. Nasib ler beg murah je. Phone kene switch off, the guard really ensured yang I dah tutup my phone..skema betul!

Once inside, alahai..kecik gila je bilik dia. Smaller than my office room agaknya..haha. I was the only one there so memang cepat la habis.

Will tell you more on children visa application in next post.
