You're welcome! Wow, 2 hours? I've looked at the screenshots of the DS-260 and have all my answered prepared ahead of time, so I'm hoping it will take under 30 minutes.

It was mostly hella easy ........ just my hubby had to look for the address and name of supervisor for the previous employers for ten years, and telephone #'s. And just to let ya know it gives an option of do not know for name of previous employer. And when it asks for previous dates of visits and dates of previous employment my hubby wasn't sure on the exact day so he just put month and year....it allowed for the day section to be blank. I'll telll ya though it wants the address of freaking everything.

Yeah, I saw that in the screenshots. I already prepared last Friday my employment information, my previous addresses and school information. Just have to input it in the form. I'm glad I did it ahead of time as it took like 3 hours for me to get (although I was multi-tasking, so it could have taken shorter).

That's good! Just make sure to click save after you complete each page! because a few times we were getting some info and the page just expired without reaching 2omins...and he had to re-type the freaking info again...so annoying. And it also asks something like , Do you have vaccanations that comply with U.S. requirements. When you click yes...a box appears and asks you to explain. Ohh and there is a what do you intend to do in the U.s.. if you click other a box appears there and asks you to explain.

I'll remember to save often.

Yes, I remember seeing that explanation box for vaccines. Which I find ridiculous. What's the point of explaining why you have had vaccines? Some of the places they have an 'explain' box completely baffles me. Like, for example, I saw that if you choose you're currently unemployed, an explain box appears. Do you really need to explain why you're unemployed? blink.gif

HAHAA that happened on mine because im currently unemployed and my parents are co-sponsours we live in the same household....and the box appears right and were like ummm okay ....I was like #### it we just put in currently looking for employment. lol

And the vaccine one he put I have my vaccanation record. They know everything already they just want to catch someone in a slip up or something stupid like that.

Ohh, good answer for the unemployment! If you don't mind, I'll use that answer since I'm unemployed as well and have been trying to figure out a good answer for that one. And for the vaccine one, yeah, I was just gonna write that I've had a vaccination record since I was born and that all vaccines have been recorded by a health professional.

I just filled out the DS260 and there was only one spot for employment. Which type of company I worked for and the address, I added two others. Nothing about supervisors or phone numbers of employers.

It was mostly hella easy ........ just my hubby had to look for the address and name of supervisor for the previous employers for ten years, and telephone #'s. And just to let ya know it gives an option of do not know for name of previous employer.

Really? Interesting. When I filled it out last month, it asked for the supervisor's name and phone number of the company of all past employers. They must have updated it then...

Really! I'm not sure why we had it.....they must have updated it like you said. It was a hassle that part, my hubby couldn't really remember the supervisors names he had to take a little break to find it.

I'm so annoyed with NVC right now!! we mailed everything in and then they sent a email saying we have to do the electonic DS-260 , and I called before my hubby completed it to see if we had to scan and resend everything in because we already mailed it in, and the operator said no , he just needs to fill it out online. Then couple weeks later we get a email saying to send everything in , and scan it and email it. I was like whoaaa I already asked about that, anyways I called NVC and explained and the operator told me to email NVCINQUIRY and explain what happened and see what they can doo. So I emailed and March 7th got a reply saying "Your inquiry has been received at the National Visa Center (NVC).

The correspondence submitted is currently under review. An appropriate action will be taken once this review has been completed."

So we don't really know what that means or whats going on now ... ughh sucks waiting. HOpe everyone else is doing well! :star:
