hi i am stuck on a couple of questions on the ds 160 form

1) us point of contact as i don't know anybody in the us i clicked the do not know option then on the organization name i put does not apply
then put on the relationship to you i choses other then in the u.s street address i put unknown in the city box i put new york because that's where i would like to go
then it for phone number i just put 0 as i can't move to next page there is no option like does not apply as with the email address

then on the previous work/education/training
I put in my current employers details. then on the previous employment page there is a box that says NOTE: Provide your employment information for the last five years that you were employed, if applicable. so as i have been with my current employer for 11 years do i put in my previous employer who got bought over by my current employer who i worked for 5 years before they got bought over then i worked i another factory where i had two jobs as i got a promotion. do i add all those in to

sorry about long question

kind regards

Since I presume your employer is asking you to fill this out so you can work for them in the US, you should ask them to provide you with some of this info (such as who will be your contact in the US, and the address of their main office in the US). If they don't have an office, then I presume they will be placing you with a contract they have with a US employer. They can get this info for you.

As far as the fact that your company just got bought out, I would list your new employer first, then as your second employer, I would list the same company, but then put (previously...."whatever the second company was" and indicate that they were acquired in a note somewhere). I would not list the promotion stuff, just the locations--make sure you cover the 5 year period--and don't worry about where you worked before that (do list that you were at the last employer for 11 years, though).

Hi thank you for the reply
as i planning on going to the u.s on a leisure visit i don't have any information regarding contact in the u.s
that's great information regarding filling in the employment part of the process
just to clarify
i will put in my current employer then on the next page where you put in previous employers i have work for my current employer for about 11 years now before it after it bought over my previous employer who i have worked for 5 years then i was employed in another company for about three years

kind regards
