Wrong Zip code in Visa

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Ok,

Well my fiencee got her passport back in the normal package, of course she did not open the brown envelope, but when we reviewed the actual visa page the Fiencee visa my zip code is wrong. What should we do? The address is correct but the actual zip code witch is sappose to be 04330 says 94330 ....I typed all the paperwork and there is no way at all that any of our paperwork said 94330.. Any suggestions or should we not worrie about it?

Thanks a million everyone

I called the embassy and they told me that she needed to go back and get it fixed...what are you guys going to do? Get it fixed or not? I am kinda skeptical because who knows how tough the POE is going to be.

hmmm... well we decided not to do anything about it..

the visa in my passport does not even have my fiance's address. it only has the state where we are going. other than lack of zipcode.. we found nothing wrong on the visa. and i think each visa is printed differently i guess.. coz i tried checking the visa images online... it looks similar but not all the information written on it are the same. :)

Now that you've already called them - they may have made a note in a database somewhere (did you tell them your names/case numbers?) in which case it could most definitely cause problems at POE. So at this point I would suggest you take it back and get it corrected.

Well, they could connect your name to the case number if they wanted to - guess it depends on who is answering the phones in the embassy and what mood they were in at the time :-) Seems safest at this point to just go ahead and take it to them for a correction. It typically takes just a few days.

When we had to return my fiance's visa for a so-called "correction", our lawyer told us that they have marked the case and we should not attempt to use the visa or he would get turned away at POE. Of course, our case was different because THEY called US.

In any case, cases where the correction thing causes unexpected problems or delays are few and far between - I think I've come across just 3 examples in all my obsessive poring over immigration forums :-) Usually it's just a matter of a few hours to max a week or two depending on your country.

Generally though if it happened to me for such a little typographical error, I would probably just let it go and not say anything or call the embassy at all.
