There is a new requirement from what I see. I had the packet for interview all complete last November. I am updating the packet and find the following in the interview instructions:
e. DS-230 (PART I) APPLICATION FOR IMMIGRANT VISA AND ALIEN REGISTRATION. Each applicant must submit one (1) completed copy of this form (Part II is not required). Download form at http://travel.state....forms_1342.html
This was not there before. The instructions are here: http://photos.state....f2_rtf2_001.pdf
on the bottom of the page it says, "(K1/K2 Applicants’ Interview Preparation Instructions-English/December 2012)".
The instructions say DS-156, DS-156K & DS-157 are required. There is no mention of a DS-158 that the original poster mentioned. I looked at the form dates for the 156, K & 7 and there is no change to the dates on them.
Anyone know of any other changes?
