Typo in my first name

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My name has been selected for DV 2013 and recently an appointment has been scheduled for me at London in November

I ahev 2 questions

1- Firstly If I can embassy do you think is there any chance to set another date earlier (maybe in October)

2- When I registered for DV Diversity I made a mistake in filling the application. There was a bix for midlle name and I typed in NO in that box (to show I have no middle name) so now there is a "NO" between my first name and family name. I have reported this to embassy and also KCC and I ahev record of all of them. Do you think I may disqualified because of this typo?

I would really appercaite your help

I have never applied for DV visa so take whatever I say with a grain of salt. I do not believe you can reschedule your interview to get an earlier date, or it is highly unlikely. You can only postpone it because in order to get an earlier date you would really have to get lucky and call just as someone else canceled and then take their spot.

As for the typo, I do not believe this will be a reason for disqualifying you. I have read (on another forum) that people got their visas with similar small typos on the forms (for example, typo in the name of the country).

Best of luck to you!
