How long can I take to fill and submit my DS-160 form after booking an interview appointment for the US embassy?

You cannot obtain an interview date without first filling out and submitting the DS-160 online. The online form will keep for no more than 30 calendar days (regular days, not business days) and one can resume filling out the form from where they left off by entering a code that you are given after you log-out of the session where you’re filling out the DS-160.Example: you start filling out the form online today but you don’t finish because there are other things that have kept you from finishing. Simply save your progress (there should be a “save” button somewhere on each page of the online form) and you’ll be given a code. It is important that you save this code either in writing or taking a screenshot of it so that the next time you enter the site to fill out the DS-160 you just enter the code and the form will resume from where you left off, otherwise you’ll have to start over.The data is saved on the U.S. State Department servers (I assume, the data could be stored elsewhere) for no more than 30 days, so you have 30 days to complete the form from the day you start, though it doesn’t take more than an hour to complete (speaking from personal experience).

How do I apply for a US tourist visa from India? Is the process online?

Let me pen down my recent experience.We filled all the information online. Attached all relevant documents.We booked two slots (One for myself and wife) (second for my parents)It was full sponsorship (so all relevant documents of our sister were also attached)We printed around 300 pages of various documentsWe went to Nehru Place (for finger printing and photo clicking) on 8th August. Reached the venue 60 minutes before. Got our turn and the complete family is done in 20 minutes even before the scheduled time. Everything happened smoothly. (Point to note the parking in the hotel is around 300 bucks)Next day we reached the embassy around 1 hour earlier and parked our car in the Malcha market DDA parking (Around 400–500mts) from embassy. regular Auto rickshaw ply on that route. Fixed rate of 40–50 bucksNo cellphone/ ipads/ bags allowed inside the embassyLine of around 60–70 people but our turn came to move inside the embassy in 25–30 minutes. They just check the passport and verify in their deviceAfter the security checking, we were made to sit in the room and line by line people were asked to go to second room, where finger prints were verified. It took another 15–20 minutes. Support staff is quite helpful. They allow elderly, couples with young kids to move ahead in the lineThen the 3rd line, which is around 60–75 people and we were being diverted to the window where interview were happening.You can hear to almost all the conversations what is happening at the window.My guess out of 3 applications only 1 were being approved. Surprised to see even lot of students were also rejected.Our turn came and there was an American Interviewer, he asked us 5–6 questionsWhat do we do?How many kids do we have?Where does my wife work? (She was with me)Where will we stay?Where does our sister work?Do I have sufficient leaves ? (Since I am a salaried)Not even single paper was checked and asked for (Not from anyone, I felt it was complete waste of paper). However there even didnt ask us to bring any paper.The interviewer wished us good luck for our trip and took our passportsI got mail on 12th august that our passports are picked from the embassy and can be collected from the centre (which in my case was chandigarh)Since it was long weekend, I was out on holiday. I went on 22nd August to collect all the passports (Mine, wife and parents) Authorization letter, along with the copy of govt approved ID were required.I checked and we got 10 years of VISAThats it! Hope it helps, in case of any question please ask

Does filling out a new DS-160 cancel the previous one? I have already scheduled my visa appointment (through my sponsor for J1 visa).

Only that DS160 is valid, whose BARCODE # you use to schedule your US visa interview.
