Official Forms

The Department of State’s centralized forms program provides customers worldwide with standardized electronic forms that meet all legal requirements. The Office of Directives Management (A/GIS/DIR) is the manager of the Department’s official forms. All official Department forms, used domestically or overseas, have been approved and processed through A/GIS/DIR. 

Forms are now available in HTML format, and you’re able to search forms using keywords which will provide an improved experience when searching for forms.  For example, if you are not aware of the form number but you know portions of the title input a keyword(s) from the title and all forms will appear that contain the keyword(s).   Forms cover a wide range of areas such as Consular Affairs, including visa forms and American citizen services, and a wide array of State Department employee forms.
