Good Morning, I filled the DS-160 (not submitted) and I saved my application id in a system but my system / OS is crashed. What is the way to retrieve the DS-160 application id.

I followed the steps provided in it and not able to find the DS-160 - Forgot your link, could some one help me on this please How to retrieve a US DS-160 confirmation page?

Or the only way is to create the new DS-160?

  • Does this answer your question? How to retrieve the DS-160 application number after closing the browser window?

    Ok...although it may be possible to retrieve the cache info by plugging the hard drive (if functional) into another system.

    Best option is almost certainly just to start again. There's no issues creating multiple DS-160s - the old one will not be used and will eventually be deleted.
