Confusing Question in DS-230!

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I am filling out DS-230 form for my wife who is a graduate of a foreign medical school. (She hasn’t taken the USMLE Board exams that will allow her to practice in U.S. as a medical doctor.) I am confused about the following question in DS-230 form: DS-230 Part II- Sworn Statement (page 3). 40 e.

The question reads as follows:

“An alien who seeks to enter for the purpose of performing skilled or unskilled labor who has not been certified by the Secretary of Labor, who is a graduate of a foreign medical school seeking to perform medical services who has not passed the NBME exam or its equivalent; or who is a health care worker seeking to perform such work without a certificate from the CGFNA or from an equivalent approved independent credentialing organization.”

What should I check for this question; YES or NO.

Thanks.

mmmm the question is a bit tricky because of your situation, but i think you would put NO, because in the first line it says "An alien who SEEKS to enter for the PURPOSE of performing skilled or unskilled....." if she is your wife then i am guessing that she SEEKS to enter the country for the PURPOSE of being with you only. Also I am guessing that she is not planning to practice medicine without first taking and passing the appropiate exam, because that would be illegal. And all those questions in that part of the form are just basically asking you are you going to do something illegal or have you done something which they consider to be illegal or are you likely to become a burned to the U.S(? SO for the most part all those questions should be answered with a "NO" (unless they actually do apply to your wife in which case you have to be honest and disclose such info)

I was in the same situation as well as your wife before. I was a physician in Indonesia before I came to the U.S to be with my husband. I answered "NO". Since I came to the U.S to be with my husband not to perform my skill as a physician. I had no problem along the process till the interview. Good luck !
