what are the chances for not having a/p

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My husband is from Syria. His interview is in Amman, Jordan. I am just curious from other mena members, what are the odds that he will not get put in administrative processing after his interview?

Also, a question.....we discovered his name on his passport is spelled wrong. Will that be a problem for interview? Anyone else have this issue...I know arabic to english....does not translate exact...and there are many variations. All of his other government papers...birth certificate, military, police, our marriage cert all spell it the way we did on all of his forms. But his passport has it spelled different!

Should we worry....any advice?

No one will know the answer to your first question.

The second one.. did he list it as an alternate name? There were spots where you got to fill out any alternate names on various forms.


None of my posts have ever been helpful. Be forewarned.

No, we did not list it as an alternate. I only realized it was spelled wrong after we completed the form, and he scanned in his bio page of passport for me. That was when I saw it! After it was too late.

E-mail Amman and ask them what they want you to do. (ETA it's probably better you point it out before they bring it to your attention).
