Can I access a partially completed DS-160 application I started before November 1, 2010, but did not submit?

Yes, but only for 30 days. You must enter your barcode or confirmation number into the Application ID field, and provide other information as prompted. To access your application after 30 days, you must save it to your computer hard drive or a disk.

Applications started before April 1, 2010, but not submitted, cannot be accessed.
