Spelled my name incorrectly on the visa packet

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I have a question regarding my visa..

I received my visa about 1.5 weeks ago now, the consulate sent it to me by mail a few days after I had my interview. The visa was correct but the sheet covering the visa packet had a spelling error on it (my maiden name was spelled incorrectly). I emailed them and asked them if this would be an issue and they asked me to return my passport and packet back to the consulate so it could be corrected.

I was wondering if anyone else has had a similar issue ans if so did it take long for them to correct the error and return your passort back to you!

I have already booked my flight to the US for a few weeks time so I'm a little worried!

Thanks for your replies.

My name was completely correct on the visa, it was only incorrect on the cover sheet that was to the visa packet (Big brown envelope) containing all of my personal information to be handed over to border protection). I emailed the consulate just to check this wouldn't be an issue for me and they actually requested I send it back, including my passort.

So once again I am without visa! :-(

Hi HD--I hope you get this. My husband got his visa approved and they sent it immediatley in the overnight mail package. He couldn't remember if they had taken his passport when they interviewed him; I assumed the passport was taken and then mailed back to him with the visa, but, of course, he is not supposed to open the package. is this how it works, or should we be in a panic that he has lost his passport somewhere?

Thanks!
