Part 5 – Form DS-160 Guide – US Point of Contact – Family – Work History

Welcome to Part 5 in this series of our DS 160 Guide

In the right-hand section of this page: “Help Contact”, it reads “Your US Point of Contact may be any individual in the US who knows you and can verify, if necessary, your identity.  If you do not personally know anyone in the US, you may enter the name of the store, company, or organization you plan to visit during your trip.’  Of the millions of people who visit the US, there is a very small percentage that go missing, sometimes it’s innocent and sometimes harm may have befallen them. Therefore, for your own personal safety and the peace of mind of your family back home, please enter this information carefully.

Family Information: Relatives

Again, for the same reasons as outlined earlier, Immigration requires you to enter information about your family back home so they may be contacted for any reason. There may also be, shall we say, “characters” within your immediate family that may be a cause of interest to Immigration.

The next few screen shots covers how this information is collected, so make sure you have this information to hand when you come to complete this section.  If you need to leave your computer for a while be sure to save your work up to this point and end the session, then when you’re ready, log back in and continue.

Present Work/ Education & Training Information

Study this section carefully to review what type of information will be required from you. This is a very straightforward section that requires little explanation – you can gather this information before you start completing your DS 160 and you’ll be able to blaze through this form, because you should have prepared and have ready in hand all of the information required.

Additional Work/Education & Training Information

Answer ‘Yes’ to the question regarding secondary education if you completed high school, university, college, a doctorate program, masters program or vocational school. Ideally, enter your high school information and then hit the “Add Another” button to then enter your college or university education.
