Hi

I have received my AP from the NBC but my name was obviously to long by one letter to fit on the document space.

For instance my full name is:

Stockley, Todd Raymond Robert John

On the document it says because of the space issue:

Stockley, Todd Raymond Robert Joh

It has my case number, my alien number, also my address. I also plan to bring all my NOA paperwork, my EAD with me in case they wish to see it.

I leave for my holiday in about 2 weeks. I'm just worried that they will deny me re-entry because of this. What should I do? or will this be ok? and its only like that because of the space issue and the length of my name.

Thanks ahead of time.

Won't be a problem, Stockley, Todd Raymond Robert Joh. Enjoy your holiday. :)

I wouldn't fret as much as you have about 1 letter. I'm sure they can figure out that 'Joh' is actually John

Thanks alot guys. You've put a paranoid mind at ease... :lol:;)

Or did they...? :ph34r: (j/k, have a great trip)

By the way - if you don't already know this - when you return to the US, the CBP will keep one of your AP documents and you'll retain the other (present both of course). (In case you were wondering how to use AP.) :star:

Your idea of bringing one of the documents from uscis is laudable. Anyone who has a fit over a missing letter N and gives you a hard time at POE must be an idiot especially if all the other names are an exact match. Don't lose sleep over this and enjoy your vacation.

But what about poor Mr. N?


My Advice is usually based on "Worst Case Scenario" and what is written in the rules/laws/instructions. That is the way I roll... -Protect your Status - file before your I-94 expires.

WARNING: Phrases in this post may sound meaner than they were intended to be. Read the Adjudicator's Field Manual from USCIS
