This information helped me when I'm processing my visa. Here's the procedures that you must follow: First, Pay the application fee at BPI or Citibank. Each applicant for U.S. nonimmigrant visa expect diplomatic, official and certain U.S. Government sponsored exchange visitors, must pay a non-refundable application fee equal to $100.00 US dollars. Applicants will receive a receipt and their DS-157 will be validated. Fees are valid for application within a year. Secondly, complete the electronic visa application form (EVAF), check passport validity and obtain proper photo. Complete Form DS-156 online by accessing http://evisaforms.state.gov. One form is needed for each person, including children. For student (F,M) and exchange visitor (J) visa applicants, a completed DS-158 form is also required. Present an undamaged passport, valid for atleast six months upon date of departure from the Philippines. Prepare one recent color photograph 2"x2" (5.1cm x 5.1 cm) against a white background. This photo must be a full-frontal shot clearly showing your face, with your ears exposed. The image of your face from the chin to the top of your hair must be 1" to no more than 1.25". Glue the photo to the application form where specified. Do not staple your photo to the application. Thirdly, Make an appointment. Phone the Visa Information and Appointment Service to book the next available appointment. Fourthly, What to bring to an interview. The supporting documents you should bring to an interview depend on the type of visa for which you are applying. Please see the section on the embassy website that discusses the visa class for which you intend to apply. Finally, All applicants must appear in person for their interview even though they are exempted from finger scanning requirement.

Before you begin, you must visit this sites www.uscis.gov,
