Jerusalem Requiring All NIV Applicants to File DS-157

Cite as "AILA InfoNet Doc. No. 02020434 (posted Feb. 4, 2002)"

The State Department has now said that all male nonimmigrant visa applicants between the ages of 16 and 45, regardless of nationality and regardless of where they apply must fill out and submit to the post a DS-157 in addition to the usual Nonimmigrant Visa Application (DS-156). [See DOS cable posted on InfoNet at Doc. No. 02011134 (Jan. 24, 2002 ).]

Individual posts have been given the discretion to require submission of the form from women too. On January 31, Jerusalem apparently became the first post to require all applicants between the ages of 16 and 45, of either gender, to submit the DS-157 form.
