DS160 question

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi,

So we just got our NOA2 yesterday, so I know this is very early to do it but... I just got home from work and had nothing else to do, and this way I can save it, ready to go the second the embassy gets my case!

Anyway, I have a DS-160-related question.. so I am originally from Belgium, lived there until I was 17, then I moved to the UK and have been residing there ever since. At the very beginning of the DS-160, this has already been established (in that it asks if I am a permanent resident of a country other than that I was born in).

In the section about work/education/training it asks 'Have you resided in any country/region for six months or longer since you attained 16 years of age?' - should I put yes or no, since I've lived anywhere else other than the two countries that have already been listed on this form?

Also, total side note, but apart from this question, the DS-160 is ridiculously easy to fill and it's taken me about 10 minutes max. I was led to believe it'd be a monster, I am relieved it's actually quite straight forward! It's just the wording of this particular question that's making me overthink!

Thank you

Hi,

I would personally add it and say yes just to be safe as u did receive education in Belgium up to age 17.

So would you put yes and then UK, or list both? The wording of that question is ridiculously confusing

I would put yes and list both, so list UK first as it's the present employer and I would list Belgium and list down the school for the previous section (especially if it was within the last 5 years). My fiance and I were trying to fill it out yesterday and I so feel you! It is confusing! We also have a similar situation, he was in Canada but moved to UAE. We figured by listing both it will match the background search information they'll have and the police clearances we will obtain :)

Hope this is of some help but I'm also making educated guesses lol so hopefully some of the veterans that have done it will hop on and provide more clarity :)

You would list yes and say U.K.

As the U.K is the place you have lived in since you were 17 and i'm guessing you finished your education there and hold a job there.
