We'll have a quick conversation to learn about your request and then schedule an appointment with you for the next available opening.  The next step is to get your paperwork together...

Step 2.

Print this checklist so you don't miss anything.  

Check off each item as you collect them. You'll also need to bring the checklist in during your appointment so keep it and all your documents together.  We suggest getting a folder.

Step 3. 

Complete these documents.

Form DS-11

Complete the online form below.  Print three copies for your appointment. Please do not print front to back. The application must be printed on separate pages. 

We suggest opening the sample version as a guide to make sure everything is filled out.  If we have to fill it out during the appointment there may be an extra fee.  


Letter of Authorization

Print one copy, complete and sign it.  We'll need the original signed letter, no photocopies please.

We'd suggest keeping all documents in a folder with the checklist at the top.
