No, you generally cannot fill out the DS-260 form without a passport. A valid passport is typically required to complete the DS-260 form as it serves as a primary identification document for visa processing. The passport information is an essential part of the form, and you will be asked to provide details such as your passport number, issuing country, and expiration date.
The DS-260 form is used for immigrant visa applications, and a passport is crucial for verifying your identity, establishing your citizenship or nationality, and facilitating travel. It is important to have a valid passport before starting the DS-260 form to ensure the smooth completion of the application process.
If you do not have a passport at the time of completing the DS-260 form, it is recommended to obtain one before proceeding with the application. Contact the appropriate government authorities in your country to apply for a passport and allow sufficient time for processing.
It’s worth noting that the specific requirements and procedures may vary depending on your country of residence and the U.S. embassy or consulate handling your case. It is always advisable to review the instructions provided by the National Visa Center (NVC) or the U.S. embassy/consulate for your case to ensure compliance with their requirements regarding passport information and any necessary supporting documents.
