How do I update my DS-260 application after changing my passport?

I filed a DS-260 two years ago, but my passport is going to expire soon. After I get a new passport, do I need to update the DS-260 before my interview? How should I go about doing this?

    You can update the new passport information during your interview. Remember to bring both the old and new passports.

    If the information on file is two years old, you will have to update it online and provide new current data. Also, the DS-260 is being revised and you will have to submit substantially more information. When your priority date is almost current, The National Visa Center will notify you.

    You can update your application either prior to the interview (as soon as you change your passport) or you can update it at the time of your interview. Advisably and alternatively, let the attorney who helped submit the I-485 handle the update.

    Yes, you should update your DS-260 before your interview. Typically, you can go online to do so. If you cannot, you can always update the American Consular Officer at the time of your interview.

    No. You do not need to update that information on the DS-260. You can bring the new and old passport to the Immigrant Visa interview.
