The State Department recently announced (July 25), that applicants for student visas (F and M) as well as exchange visitor visas (J) must complete a new form when filing.
Effective immediately, the new form, Contact Information And Work History For Nonimmigrant Visa Applicant, Form DS-158, is required in addition to the Nonimmigrant Visa Application, Form DS-156, and where necessary, the Supplemental Nonimmigrant Visa Application, Form DS-157.
All F, J, and M categories, including the spouse and children, must complete the new form. The State Department emphasizes that applications received without the DS-158 will be returned to the applicant.
However, the State Department is only providing limited information about this new form. H1 Base will provide any new information as it becomes available.
