A DS-160 form is an online Nonimmigrant Application which must be completed if you desire travel to the United States. The information will be sent to the Department of State and will be reviewed by a Consular Officer to determine your eligibility to enter the United State on a temporary nonimmigrant visa. A personal interview will be required.
