Packet 3 help!

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I just received packet 3 via e-mail and in the DS230 form it asks for employment history for the beneficiary. My fiancee is 21 years old and has only worked a couple under-the-table type jobs. Should we list these jobs or will they come up as a red flag in the interview? My concern is that they may think that when she comes to the US she will try to be getting money from the state or that she will also be working under-the-table non taxable jobs. I am thinking of just listing N/A because from age 19-20 she was studying abroad and since she is only 21 years old it would not be such a red flag that she hasn't had a real job. Now if she were older and never had a job I think that would be a red flag. So the question is: can I list N/A under employment history and it be ok? Is it common for a beneficiary to list N/A under employment history (I am sure there have been many cases)? I would love feedback about this situation! Thanks!

It won't be an experet answer, but if it was me I think I'd put Never Employed. I.e in some countries school leavers cant find jobs for months sometimes so i don't think it would be a red flag, and again in my opinion cash in hand jobs like baby sitting or whatever shouldn't be listed unless someone is a professional nanny and is self employed etc.


It is not where I breathe but where I love that I live.
