The United States Embassy in the Philippines has formally announced that beginning May 24, 2010, all non-immigrant visa (NIV) applicants who are planning to visit the United States whould have to secure an application online as they aim to promote a greener, pro-environment, user friendly visa application process.
But for those applicants who have paper forms and with scheduled appointments before May 24 is still valid and will be accepted.
The new online application form replaces there paper forms, so it should be easier and faster for applicants to complete their applications. This way reduces use of paper, making it a greener method in securing a US Visa.
However, the rest of the application is still the same as visa applicants must schedule an interview appointment after completing their online application. The interview appointment schedule may either be done online at https://philippine.us-visaservices.com or by calling 1-909-101-7878.
