Typographical error on I-551

Another day, another problem. Today, we received the immigrant visa packet of my son, and we got so excited when it came after only three working days, because I really need to go back to the US. However, when I checked immigrant visa issued ( serves as temporary I-551 upon endorsement, as annotated ), the given name was missing the last 2 letters.

Is it okay to go directly to the US Embassy in Manila to have this corrected? Another form?

Just when we thought we are almost home...........

To the mods: I really don't know if this should be posted in here, or in the Regional forum.

Called up USEM, and was told it usually happens when the given name is so long that it cannot be printed, and that there will be no problem in the port of entry as long as the data in the immigrant visa summary is correct. However, we can still request for visa correction. The operator is unable/not allowed to say what goes on after this, though. We will be going to the embassy today, and see what happens.

Just so this may help someone in the future..

We went to USEM yesterday and the immigration officer said that it's not a typo error, but more of the given name being so long that it won't fit. She said that the system shows the complete data, and that there will be no problem at all at POE.
