Urgent help needed in filling DS 160 form for first time H1b visa stamping

Hi All,

My name is Amar from India.Now living in Denmark since 6 months.


I have 3 years software testing experience in India from March 2010 to Feb 2013.


After that i came to Denmark on work permit in March 2013 for job search and luckily i applied for H1b and got approved.


Currently i'm not working anywhere. So i have 6 months gap.


Now the problem is while i'm filling DS 160 form, there is a field like Present Work/Education/Training.


For this, what should i mention and what to be selected from the Primary Occupation drop down list.


Do i need to select "NOT EMPLOYED" or any other.


If i select Not Employed option, is it will be any problem for visa stamping as there is a gap of 6 months.


Please experts i need your precious replies on this question.



Thanking You,




Please experts, i’m waiting for your answers…

You should respond as not employed. You should be as truthful as you can in Ds160 and during your interview. You may be asked a reason for the gap, you may explain as health reason or family need. Make sure you have documentation of your prior employment, skill sets , education and proposed employment in usa. You will be asked about your projects and client so be well prepared. Also on your role. Hope this helps.
