name confusion sweden

Recommended Posts

Hey you experienced people in the K1 jungle.

I have some name confusion questions.

Does the K1 Visa process require the same name as my swedish passport?

we all know americans have their given name first, but in sweden the given name is issued last.

last name: Bxxxx given name: Vxxxxx middle names: Ayyyy Cyyyyy

But in the passport my names say Bxxxx, Ayyyy Cyyyy Vxxxx.

is it possible to still have Vxxxx as a given name for all the future documents or am i stuck with Ayyyyy? haha

If so, Can Ayyyy be changed to Vxxxxx after the entire process is done or how should i move forward with this?

Help is very appreciated.

Do you mean for example if someone was called Anders Sven Nilsson than Anders is the middle name since the person goes by Sven? Both Anders and Sven are actually given names and I would think that both names would be on the documentation right? I'm not sure though. I have this problem... my name is Emma Sofia but I go by Sofia. On the documentation I have received so far my full name is stated but on the CEAC webpage it only says Emma. Why did my parents have to make it so difficult haha! :)

Or do you mean for example if someone is called Anders Olsson Nilsson and that Olsson is the middle name? If yes then that should be treated as a last name in all documentations because it is listed as a last name in your passport.

You should write it as your passport say. If your given name is your second name, it should be put second or if it's third it should be put down in that order. If you haven't even filed the I-129F yet you can make your life a bit easier but applying for a name change with Skatteverket and change the order of your names. I did, got tired of being called by the wrong name... It's pretty cheap to do too.
