Helper Prepares Tourist Visa applicant's DS160, signed via Remote Access

5 posts in this topic

We all know that the B2 visa applicant has to sign (click) their own online DS160 application. The helper can fill everything out, but can't "click" sign. 


If a helper uses their own computer to fill out the applicant's online DS160 from within country A, and the applicant located in country B uses their mobile device to remote access (via teamviewer) the helper's computer to sign, the signature-click / submission will be shown to have taken place in country A, (associated with country A IP address and internet connection) correct? Would this be an issue to a CO if they notice this? How could you demonstrate  that it was the applicant making the click remotely if they were to ask?       


Curious about this and thought it be an interesting topic.

We often see posts here where US family members submit B applications for family from the US, never heard of anyone mentioning it having been raised as an issue at interview.

I've noticed that. Most posts I've found seem to say it wasn't an issue. It appears that legally you have to "click-sign" your own application unless you are exempt, though. I wonder if anyone has ever been questioned on this or denied a visa for submitting something online they technically didn't sign ("click").

Well by going to the interview you are effectively stating that you did submit it, why would you go to an interview otherwise?
