Hello everyone!

quick questions about ds 160

1. There is a question that states: Have you resided in any country or region for 6 months or longer since you attained 16 years of age? I’m wondering if this applies to your current country you reside in now, where you would have gotten the police certificate. In my case I have only lived in Canada (where I currently reside now). I understand some people have put “no” under this question in the ds 160 and I’m wondering if you must actually answer “yes” since that includes ALL countries, including the one you are living in now and would have gotten the police certificate for ?

 

2. The question about past visits to the USA. I have been to visit many times in the last year since we do not live that far apart (me in Ontario,  Canada and my fiancé in Massachusetts) so it is very easy for us to visit often. Do I include all past visits to the US? Or only the last few recents ones? 

 

Thank you in advance!

1. I believe  it is yes ONLY if you have lived in any other country after turning 16. E.g: You was born in Canada but you spent 8 months teaching English in Japan or studied etc... If you were in Canada before you turned 16 and never stayed outside of Canada more than 6 months, then the answer is no.

 

2. I think it should have a help/tip  section right next to the question. If not then I would try to enter as much as possible, maybe the form after a while will not allow more to enter.  Couldn't find a guide to check but I remember they asked me for my travel history for the last five years beside the USA. Also you could try to call the consulate where your interview might be, so they would tell you what they expect...
