Fiance's surname misspelled in the 'annotation' field

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Can anyone help?

My fiance's surname is misspelled in the 'annotation' field of my K1 visa (I am the beneficiary). We emailed the Consulate several times about it but we got no response. From what I've read on here, it seems like it will be no big deal when I enter the US. However, I'm wondering if it will create problems while adjusting status, as we will have to submit a copy of the visa too.

Do you think it's a good idea to point the misspelling out at POE? Can CBP officers correct it?

Thank you!

You're name is whats really important, when you file for AOS make sure it is correct. Good Luck with the rest of your journey. You can bring your emails you sent if anyone asks.

There was an error in my now-husband's information at the NVC and then at the embassy. He emailed them to inquire and got a response very quickly saying that they'd make corrections at the interview. They did and now everything is correct.

It IS important to get it changed before the visa is issued as I have seen with many patients over the years in the ER that, when asked their information, they ask me: "Do you want the real name/birthday/whatever or the one on my documents?" Apparently, once that visa is issued, it takes hell and highwater to get it corrected.
