Completing the DS-160..questions about completing in English and Current Employers

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I've received an email with a letter from the NVC stating they've received the I129 and will be forwarding it the consulate in Brasil. My fiance in Brasil began completing the DS-160. 

 

1) Instructions state answers should be in English. I know this obviously applies to questions that ask her to explain her job duties. But am I correct to assume it also applies to addresses, employer names, and universities? My ONLY concern is this wouldn't match information on the I-129F and other documentation.

 

For example, if her address was "Rua Lagoa 123, Apartamento 31"...translated to English and in correct English format it would be "123 Lake Street, Apartment 31" Is this correct or will it cause an issue since the addresses don't match?  I also assume we'd change "Universidade de Sao Paulo" to "University of Sao Paulo"?

 

2) She has two jobs. Both were listed as current employers on the I-129F. However, the DS-160 only allows you to list one current employer. 

 

Should she list her other current employer under "Previous Employment"? We could make a note in the "Job Duties" section stating she was still currently employed at this position. I'd rather do that than have an immigration officer question us on why there was a discrepancy between the I-129F and the DS-160. Thoughts?

 

When confronted with "either/or" questions on the I-129F where the answer wasn't clearly addressed in the instructions we made a decision to err on the side of thoroughness so they could at least see a good faith effort. For example, when listing the name of my ex-wife I included an addendum in Part 8 and listed my ex wife's maiden, married, AND currently remarried surname. Overkill? Probably. But they didn't clarify which last name they wanted so I took the time to list them all.

No you do not translate those.   We lived in Mexico.   Our address was on Calle 13. . .  used that on all the forms.

 

Use the untranslated address, employers, schools and proper names.

 

On the job list the one that pays her the most as current.  List the next one under previous

1- you will write the actual address, don’t try and translate it

2- sure, list as previous employer

3- overkill
