e-filing Desktop Add-on

Introduction

INSZoom allows its users to fill out online forms using the e-file feature. Many forms such as DS-160, and N-600 are web-based forms, that ask foreign nationals/representatives to fill out their information on the form available on the government link. To allow our users to fill these forms using the master data available in the INSZoom application, the e-file feature was introduced.

Getting Started

INSZoom users can log into the INSZoom application and can make use of the e-filing Add-on by following the below-given steps- 

  1. Navigate to the Case Form that is to be e-filed. 

 

2. Click on the E-FILE icon available to the right of the form. 

3. For first-time users, the e-filing Add-on needs to be installed on the system. After installation, users can seamlessly e-file forms on certain websites. 

4. Read the Disclaimer and click on the Agree button to proceed. 


5. Click on ‘download and start e-filing’ to download the installation file. Once the file is downloaded, double-click the file to begin the installation of the application and follow the onscreen instructions to complete the installation.


6. If the Add-on is already installed in your computer, a popup message appears at the top of the browser screen. Click on ‘Open INSZoom e-filing Desktop Add-on' to start the e-filing process.

 

 7. A new e-filing Add-on window will open and you can proceed with the online form as you would normally do. The data will be populated field by field, so you can click Save, Save, and Proceed once the complete page is populated.

Few Best Practices

1. When the e-filing is in progress on the government website there will be a blue color progress bar at the top (a line between the header content and the government website), which shows the progress of the data auto-population. Until the progress bar is completed user should not click on the “Next or Continue” button on the online form page.

2. The online form e-filing/ data auto-population will not be completed if you close the Desktop Add-on during the e-filing process and the form data might not get saved at the government website. This behavior is based on the configuration of the government website; few forms/websites might save data during the e-filing process and few websites might save data only at the end. Therefore, don't interrupt the e-filing process in between unless it is absolutely necessary.
