Hello my name is ***** ***** I will be able to assist you.

The foreign earned income exclusion is limited to earned income.

Unearned income, interest and dividends are taxed as a US tax payer.

For example:

Enter the ordinary dividends from Form 1099-DIV, Dividends and Distributions, box 1a, on line 9a of Form 1040, U.S. Individual Income Tax Return.
