How can I correct a mistake on my DS-260 form?

I scheduled my EB-5 visa appointment at the U.S. consulate in my home country. However, I realized that I made a mistake with my address on my DS-260 form. The address on the form of my wife is correct. Is this difference of addresses on our forms going to make the visa officer question our marital relationship and cause a problem? How can I change it?

    You have to start off with the premises that you tell the truth. If you and your wife are living at different addresses, you need to explain why. If there is a reasonable explanation and this is a good faith marriage, you should explain it. If there is a mistake, you can ask to reopen the form to correct it or present the correct information at the interview.

    You can send in a letter to correct the error. In essence, try to amend the address and request that the application to be updated. Your request must be done in the same manner as you filed your DS-260, which is either through regular mail or online filing.

    You should inform the interviewing officer during your consulate interview about the mistake and request for correction.

    You can try to send the National Visa Center a message or be super prepared to discuss it right away at the beginning of your interview.

    First, notify the National Visa Center of the correction. Second, please notify the U.S. consulate officer of the correct address, and ask if any further clarification is required.

    You can inform them of the error at the time of the interview. It should not be a problem.
