USA Visa – photo will be taken at the asc means

Recently, there have been some changes to the DS-160 Visa application form where the applicants are no longer required to upload a digital photography while filling out the DS-160 Visa applications. Initially, the applicants had to upload a digital photography at the end of the DS-160 Form but now the space shows the message “Photo will be taken at ASC” (as shown in the image).

The photograph will now be taken at the OFC (Offsite facilitation centers) or ASC (Application Service center).

After filling out the DS 160 Form and prior to the Visa interview date, you will need to schedule the OFC fingerprinting and photograph at one of the ASC centers. During this biometric interview, your photo will be taken at the visa application center along with the fingerprints.

Some Recent Experience

I too uploaded the photo(but 10 days before) and submitted today only to find that my photo was not appearing in the confirmation page. Called the Customer Support of ustraveldocs.com and came to know that it was a recent process change and a fresh photo would be taken at ASC. Also they advised me to take 2 hardcopies of photo to the ASC.

USA Visa – photo will be taken at the ASC means that your visa photo will be taken at the Application Support Center (ASC) during your appointment. You do not need to submit a photo with your online visa application (DS-160).

It means that you do not need to upload a photo with your DS-160 form. Your photo will be taken during your Appointment Service Center (ASC) appointment, along with your fingerprints.

Having a photo taken at the ASC is a routine step in the U.S. visa application process. It’s important to arrive at the ASC with appropriate attire and ensure that you are well-groomed to facilitate the process. Remember to follow any specific instructions provided by the ASC staff to ensure that your photo meets the necessary criteria. Overall, this step contributes to the security and integrity of the visa application process.
