    Default DS 160: ten-printing

    In the DS-160; they mention about “ten-printing”. My previous US visa was a F1 in 2003 but I don’t remember if I had a ten-printing. Any idea what I should select (Yes/no)?
    Thanks

    In 2003, you were most likely not ten-printed.

    Therefore, say no.

    Thanks for the input, Admnistrator.

    Abhay, Typically, finger printing means index finder printing. I guess ten printing means printing all the 10 fingers for added security. I saw somewhere that this was introduced sometime recently. Hope that helps....

    Immihelp:

    Nice link. But can anybody tell, when this 10 fingerprint started? Because I visited india in 2007, but I don't remember that while stamping I had index finger prints or 10 finger prints. So, is there anyway to know that starting from which month and year this 10 fingerprint started? So, while filling this new DS-160, it will be easy to fill the form without any hesitation in mind.

    I found this:
    The Department of State currently uses 10‑fingerprint scanners at most of its visa‑issuing posts and will complete deployment worldwide by the end of 2007.

    That means any one getting visa after 2007 was ten-printed.

    Regarding when exactly it started, at least in India, I will have to dig into our archives to see when we updated our own web page. I will try to find it out over the weekend.

    When did the "ten printing" finger prints start in Mumbai Consulate? I got my F1 Visa stamped on 10 July 2009 but I can't seem to recall if I was ten printed. Please help me to know if I should be mentioning Yes or No here.

    Yes, its true we are also fooled by J K peoples, they are working only for money by taking benefit of unavailability and lack of experts in certain areas, they charged me about 20000 rs for me and my partner.
