in New Zealand
Due to recent systems outages, we are unfortunately unable to accept DS160 visa application forms that were submitted on or prior to June 10, 2015. If you have submitted your online form on or before June 10, please complete a new form before attending your appointment or submitting your interview waiver application. Please note that this has no impact on cases that were interviewed prior to June 10. The U.S. Embassy/Consulate regrets any inconvenience.

DS-160 & Supporting Documents
An applicant must print and bring a copy of the DS-160 confirmation page together with the supporting documents with him/her when attending the interview at the US Consulate General in Auckland.
If an applicant has opted for drop box, the applicant must include a printed copy of the DS-160 confirmation page together with the supporting documents in the package to be sent to the US Consulate General.
Please note that after an applicant has submitted the online DS-160, he/she will receive the DS-160 confirmation page. If an applicant does not have DS-160 confirmation page and the supporting documents with him/her during the interview, or in the drop box package, the visa application process will be delayed.
