US Business & Tourism (Temporary Visitor B1/B2 Visa) Questions - DS160

Good day. I don’t know if this is the right sub to ask these since I’m applying for a non-immigrant visa. But I have some questions about the ds160 form.

  1. DS160 - Will I be able to update my ds160 form after submitting it and obtaining an appointment date? The earliest appointment date at the Embassy in my country is January 2023. My passport expires by the end of next year so I will have to apply for it and change my passport info on the ds160 form. I may even apply for a new job next year. I’m worried that I won’t be able to update my ds160 form and that may cause inaccuracy during the interview (obviously more than a year from now). I know that my approval for a visa heavily depends on the accuracy of my answers. But one year is such a long time. I may even change my address since I’m living alone and paying for my own rent. I am not sure if it’s reasonable to ask my landlady as early as now to extend my lease until 2023 just to make sure my address matches with the one I put on my ds160.
  2. PURPOSE - The purpose of my visit is to meet a bf(we’re not yet engaged) who is a US citizen. I’m not sure if I should declare that on the ds160 since they only ask if I have a spouse/fiancĂ© but I want to be honest as much as possible. I did not put him as a contact person from the US either, I put my friend’s name and address. I also only put a hotel as the place where I’ll stay when I’m there and that I’ll pay for my own expenses(it’s the truth).
  3. EMPLOYER - I’ve been employed for three years by my first and only employer. I got promoted recently. The ds160 asks for “present employer” and “previous”. I don’t know if I should put both jobs since I’m still working for the same company, just with a different job title now. Would it be misleading if, in my present job, I put the date that I was hired by my employer? Or the date that I was promoted to the new position? Then I’ll add my previous job in the “previous” section and put the same employer with the different job title I had at the time.

Thanks in advance to anyone who will answer. I don’t trust that this country is reopening next year at all.

NVC Case FE Review note

Hi everyone, my family and I are under the F3 category and we just received a notice from NVC that our documents have been approved and that we are Documentarily Qualified. My only concern is this message that we received today in addition to the acceptance: ​ " [Name of petitioner] does not meet the minimum income requirement to sponsor the intending immigrants for this case. The consular officer will make a decision regarding this requirement at the time of the interview. For more information, please visit . To avoid delays, an additional Affidavit of Support Form I-864 for a joint sponsor may be submitted." ​ We already have a petitioner and a household sponsor (the household sponsor's income is above the required level), but still unsure why we received this. Has anyone else received this message? All of our documents say "Approved" on NVC. Does this mean we have to find another sponsor? Can we show the consular officer our
