Huh?

Where I was this weekend...nothing to do with the rest of the post.

I “slept” on a bus last night, so I thought  maybe when I read the following statement on the U.S. State Department website, I was misinterpreting it due to lack of sleep. I should probably explain: a friend is applying for a U.S. Tourist visa and he asked me to help him decipher how to fill out the online application. This was part of the instructions:

Can Other People Assist Me with my Visa Application?
Yes, you can get assistance from other people. Be aware, however, that under U.S. law (22 C.F.R. 41.103) you must electronically sign and submit your own application unless you qualify for an exemption. This means that you (the applicant) must click the “Sign Application” button, even if someone else helped you fill the application out. If someone else clicks the button instead of you, your application may not be accepted.

Let’s revisit that last part…

If someone else clicks the button instead of you, your application may not be accepted.

That’s right, folks. Apparently the U.S. State Department now has the capability to monitor who exactly is clicking your mouse button.

More on the above city later this week. Bonus points if you can tell me which city it is. 🙂

    • I know, right? I almost want to click the button for my friend just to mock them. But I won’t (in case anyone from the State Dept is reading this….)

  1. Pahahaha. What????

    That’s way too funny. I’ve just applied for an ESTA so I can visit the US in a few weeks and the whole process is completely nutty. The US government are sooooo paranoid about visitors, it’s absurd.
