Can I schedule my appointment before submitting my DS-160 visa application?

In most instances, submitting your DS-160 online application is the first step in applying for a visa. Once you submit your DS-160, you will see an option on the screen to "Schedule Appointment." Once you follow that link you will be prompted to enter a 10-digit barcode number from the last page of your electronic visa application form (DS-160). After submitting your barcode number, you will be able to select a preferred appointment time.
