Hello Sir, Completed giving step 1 and step 2 CK in India. To apply for visa to complete step 2 CS, what are the requirements to be produced ? Is the visa type (B1/B2) or just B1?
Well all you need to do right now is to get yourself registered for the CS exam. First two levels can be given in India but the last level has to be given in the US. So you will have to travel to US to give the exam and since the reason will be for an exam, the visa might be the tourist visa that most of the people get.
I hope this helps.
