Problem with DS-160 after submitted

Filed: IR-1/CR-1 Visa Country: Vietnam

Hi all visajourney members,

I filled out DS-160 visa for my mother-in-law to visit me and my spouse as a tourist (not business matter) back in July and remembered correctly that online form did not have the option for picking B-2 type for tourist. DS-160 has several options: B1 for business, B1/B2 for business and tourist, and "I don't know if it has the third option back then." Online DS-160 has a third option now labeled as "tourist/medical treatment" my friend told me. After my mother-in-law had paid the visa fee in Vietnam, I logged-in back to the ustraveldocs.com and scheduled the appointment and saw the B2 option for pleasure (the other options were B1 and B1/B2). So I chose this option. My question is if Consulate Office grant my mother-in-law B1/B2 (business and tourist), will Custom Border Control deny her entry strictly because of her tourist purpose? I did some research and though you applied for tourist visa, US Embassy will give you B1/B2 anyway. Is it correct? My mother-in-law is 68 now and has ties back home (husband, home, children).

Thank you,

It sounds like you did it correctly. But I am not clear on which Visa she wanted, if it is Tourist Visa then I believe it is correct. Although technically the one applying is supposed to digitally sign it, you can help them fill it out if you answer the question at the end and stte that you helped them fill it out.

I filled out the DS-160 for my wifes Fiancee visa and MIL's DS-160 but answered the questions and said I helped them.
