Each year we have some technical challenges and this year is no exception.

Many people have reported that they cannot submit their DS260. There are a number of reasons that can cause that. Here are the things to try:

SymptomPossible solution
“Your request cannot be processed at this time”Try using a different browser. So if using Chrome, try Edge and so on.
“Case number doesn’t match with case number”Where you enter your case number, remove the leading zeros. So – where the case number is for example 2018AF000012345 , you would enter 2018AF12345. 
Form will not submit for a male under 26Click the link on the final page about selective service. Then the form will submit.

Also remember you can save progress as you enter your DS260 – so save as you go.
