Business News/ News / World/  US visa application: How to fill USCIS online forms correctly

If you planning to go to the United States, there are multiple numbers of forms that you need to fill to get the visa process going. The good news is you many USCIS forms can be filed online. However, it is equally important to ensure that the ‘online forms’ are carefully read and filled in order to avoid rejection.

Here's how to fill USCIS forms accurately: 

  • Remember to sign your form in the space provided for your signature. USCIS will reject and return any unsigned form.
  • Use the current form edition. You can download forms from our website, complete them electronically, and then print your forms to submit by mail. If you need help downloading and printing forms, read the instructions.
  • Do not mail a form that you have already submitted online.
  • If you hand write your answers, use black ink. Make sure that everything you write on the form is clear so the information you provided can be clearly.
  • Ensure that the form edition date and page numbers are visible at the bottom of the printed pages and that all pages have been completed with the same edition of the form. If any of the form’s pages are missing or have been completed with a different edition of the form, the application might get rejected.
  • Complete the entire form unless the form directs you to skip one or more items. If parts of the form are incomplete, your application may get rejected for missing information. If you make an error, start over with a clean form.
  • Do not use highlighters or correction fluid or tape. 
  • If filing multiple forms, write your name, date of birth, and A-Number (if any) exactly the same way on each form (unless you have had a legal change of name or date of birth and provide proof of such).
  • Pay the correct fee. Forms submitted with incorrect or incomplete fees are usually rejected. Use the Fee Calculator to help you determine the correct fee.
  • If you are filing multiple applications, petitions, or requests, it is recommended that you send separate payments for each application, otherwise if one payment is submitted and one of the applications, petitions, or requests is rejected, all others will be rejected as well.
