Wrong Spelling on Green Card

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi, just received my green card and USCIS didn't even put my actual first name.. sigh.

How do I go about it? I saw you can file it online.. I am quite worried I might mess up the process, so I would like to ask, did anyone file a correction for the green card form I-90 online? Please help...

I uploaded my passport for the info, do I have to upload my incorrect green card? What happens, do I still have to physically mail my incorrect greencard?

AND oh, does the greencard number change? I need to give my bank my greencard number and they have been waiting for that info.. but given that USCIS made a mistake, I don't know if the greencard number will be the same or do i have to wait for the corrected one?

I would appreciate it if you can help me with this.

Thank you.

I would suggest filing by mail instead of online if you havent already submitted your i90 online. Reason for this is if it's DHS that made error on your card then there is no fee to file i90 but you have to send your original card back. So file through mail and send original card with it. You can file online but later you will receive an RFE to submit the card that you have right now.

Not sure why your bank would need GC's number? Did you mean your social security number?

thank you! I'll mail it then.

PNC bank got my ssn already, but their system is requesting for my green card number.. if they put you as an alien resident, you have to "have" the greencard number.. which is silly as I gave all what I can give. But the branch manager himself is an alien so he said the bank needs that and he just explained my situation but would be good if I can give the greencard number as soon as I can.

Weird, there are lot of other banks that would open account for foreigners, even for the tourists that dont have Social security number. Take care of i90 first and go to some other bank. Banks dont have to have your GC number or SSn just to open a checking account.

Wow banks normally ask for SSN but not Green Card No. How about Visa holders that would like to open an account? They dont have Green Card No to give. Anyway, like dee&vee said just care of i90 first and go to some other bank. SSN and some kind of ID (Passport, Driver License or State ID) would be fine :)

thank you both! I've already have an ongoing account with them and I just talked to branch manager and everything is taken care of. They did put me before as a non resident alien and then gave the reason that I just got married to someone. But it's a long story..

it's sorted out now with the bank.

for the Green Card, I just filled up an i-90, I wrote a letter explaining why attached the original greencard, a scanned copy of my passport and an actual letter from USCIS ELIS when I filed for the green card for the first time. Thought of including that because clearly, my name on that letter is right. I'd like to rant a little, but isn't it common sense that, if that letter is right, shouldnt a card that came from them too, should be exactly the same as what's on the letter they sent?..

anyways, are those fine? (scanned passport, greencard and the letter) or do I need to add another document?

Add a copy of birth certificate too or marriage certificate if you have changed your name after marriage. Just one more proof of your name. try searching around to find other similar cases as well.
