If you are looking to get a US visa there are some tips that help up to 93.51% of Costa Ricans who apply get granted a visa. You’ll be well on your way to enjoying New York, Hawaii, Miami or Vegas.
First, you can save money by filling out your own DS-160 form online instead of paying a service to do it. Make sure to specify that you are applying for a non-immigrant visa, in the tourism category. Answer everything truthfully. You will be able to add digital photographs but will also need printed photos. At a photographic studio let them know you need pictures that meet the requirements for a US visa.
After uploading photos, proofread your answers and press the upload key. Keep the ID number it gives you. Print the first page where your name and a bar code appear. This barcode is needed for access to the Embassy on the day of your appointment. Lastly, pay $160 via debit card or Servimás. The next day you will be able to sign in and pick an appointment time.
Bring documents to demonstrate roots in Costa Rica to the appointment. These can be bank account statements, proof of employer or salary, or others. At the Embassy you will have fingerprints taken and go to an interview. Visas are delivered via Correos de Costa Rica.
