2. Doko kimishita Ka? Incorrect, should be - doko kara kimashita ka? - "Where are you from/where did you come from?"
3. Doko Shimashita Ka? Incorrect
4. Anata no shusshin wa doko desu ka? → "Where are you originally from?" - Usually used to ask where someone is originally from. I prefer using this one because it has a refined feel to it and it can't be misinterpreted.
5. Anata wa doko kara kita no desu ka? → "Where did you come from?" - Sounds slightly strange as a question in this context
