      You can down load it but you can't use it. They want money and then they will send you the Official form. then you send it back. They then will want more money for the support documents ($70). You can phone them and they do answer. When you send anything to anyone, you need to get a confirmation of delivery from the post office.

        Just from my own experience. I designated myself an agent for my parents case, so I was getting all of the forms here, in US.
        The Packet not only has DS-230 Part 1 but also NATIONAL VISA CENTER BARCODE SHEET that needs to be returned back to NVC with completed DS-230 Part1. To the best of my knoweledge Form DS-230 can be dowlnoaded and used. But you would need NATIONAL VISA CENTER BARCODE SHEET with it.
        Call NVC. They always answered and gave me good and professional advice.
        I our case Affidavit of Support fee bill needed to be paid before the send DS-230 Part1
        Good luck

          For what visa is your wife applying?

          There is a way to create bar-code and past it on DS-230, but if a mistake was made, it can cause further delays.

                If you feel confident about it, follow the steps in James's NVC shortcuts (a few posts down) for DS-230:

                http://www.visajourney.com/forums/in...showtopic=117#

                I hope that's what you need. Please be aware that the procedure is different for K-3 as oppose to CR-1/IR-1, and may slightly differ depending on the consulate you are dealing with regarding DS-230.

                Most consulates provide notarization service.

                    Taf - are you asking "what if nothing goes wrong"? Well, then you'll be one step closer to the visa.

                    Just make sure that's what you need!! I keep pointing that, because I don't even know for what visa is your wife applying.

                    (I recommend that you search for posts and have a chat with "pharmacist" at www.visajourney.com.)

                        most people are applying for spouses, so I assumed that's what you are doing as well. My mistake.

                        Taf - when did you apply for your son? Before April 01? How old was he then? (answers may give some clue what is NVC doing)

                        Well, if something goes wrong (created bar-code is different from the one NVC uses) you'll expirience further delay.

                        Have you tryed to call NVC and ask them to re-send the package?

                            I can tell you what I would try to do in your situation:

                            - I would call/email them again and ask for Packet 3. (when is the last time you did that?) NVC is good at aswering questions (phone, email etc).
                            - ask them how to correct the information in the system (or send a letter with explenation and proof)
