H4 VISA - Occupation on DS 160?

Recommended Posts


My wife is on H4 visa, she holds valid EAD and works as a freelancer from home in the US. There are no employment documents like Pay Stubs, Offer Letter, W2, 1099 etc. The payment is made online based on hours worked per week. Taxes are paid under section Self Employment as there is no 1099 available. This is done as advised by Tax consultant.

She is appearing for Visa Interview in June. 

Question: What should be selected in Occupation on DS 160? Also please advise what additional supporting documents are needed.

Option 1: OTHER and enter our home address under employer address and average monthly income
Option 2: NOT EMPLOYED and in the 'Explain' field will mention it as currently not employed because she will not be working while in India and if required will discontinue work with immediate effect if this is going to cause a problem during interview.

Please advise.

Thank you,
