Foreign wages

Level 1

Hello all...   I have a client with foreign wages and foreign tax paid.  Earned 100% out of the country by a US Citizen and he is eligible for 2555 exclusion and 1116, but that won't matter. 

1. Do I enter the W-2, without an EIN.  An error is generated.   

2. Or do I just do it all on 2555    

3. OR is there another way to enter the wages.   

FYI  the 1040NR does not allow for 2555.   Thank you

This worksheet has a line for foreign income, no W2 input needed.

US citizen files 1040, not 1040NR.
