Step 4: If the Embassy/Consulate approves your request, you will be sent a Group Access Code which one member of the group can then use to schedule a Group Appointment online. That organizer will need to have the fee payment information and DS-160 barcode numbers for every group member. If the Embassy/Consulate does not approve your request, then every member of the group should schedule their own individual interviews.

Step 5: Visit the U. S. Embassy/Consulate on the date and time of your scheduled interview and have the required documents.
