I was trying to apply for an American Visa from UK. However, when I was intending to fill in the DS-160 form here. I can not find the country of United Kingdom (or Britain and Great Britain)!

Can you test it? I believe I have carefully checked the entire drop down menu list and I did not find London. I am confused.

The drop down menu: enter image description here

    Oh the joys of having a country which is part of another country :P

    Yeah, I hate the fact that whenever I use a drop-down list to choose the country I live in, I have to guess whether the form designer thinks I live in the United Kingdom, Great Britain, Britain or England. Commented Mar 27, 2017 at 19:01
  • @DavidRicherby Some websites still have Yugoslavia, so you are lucky that you have to select a country that still exists

    I guess they don't want people getting confused about London, Ontario or London, Texas (or several other Londons in the USA).

  • @alephzero Except that all the Canadian cities are listed in the style of "Canada, London", not "Ontario, London". Subnational entities don't seem to be used for any other country. Commented Mar 27, 2017 at 19:00
