Can a family member pay the DS-160 for the beneficiary?

We have the approved I-129F but the fiance is stuck in Saudi Arabia until the end of May. We have to pay the visa application fee in cash at Bank Of Philippines Islands to proceed with the DS-160. Is it possible to have my fiance's sister make the payment at the bank on her behalf? Or will the bank require my fiance to pay in person?

Your fiance's sister can definitely ask BPI if she can do that on behalf of her sister. 

 

I found this. It can also be done online. http://www.ustraveldocs.com/ph/PayMyVisaFee.html

Yeah it looks like that's what we'll have to do, contact the bank. The online payment option is only for those who have a BPI account. Thanks You 👍

Your fiancee is not required to pay the fee in person.  Her sister can pay on her behalf.  Note that a deposit slip printed from the ustraveldocs site is required for paying in cash at the bank.  Passport details may also be required, so ask your fiancee to send a picture of her passport bio page to her sister.
