Special characters

Hi,


Regarding foreign names, there is a section on the I-129F where I am to write my Croatian fiancé's name and address in his native alphabet. So does this mean that all other sections of the form must contain NO special characters, anywhere?  Am I just supposed to write everything about him and his child and ex-wife spelled out in English letters phonetically?

 

And later on, when he comes to the US, is he simply allowed to use whatever English spelling of his name that he wants for marriage, green card application, etc?

 

Thank you...

Just His name and address in native language....the rest is english. Can you change your keyboard to Croatian alphabet. As an example, my wife's name in english is Ganna. In native alphabet it looks like this Ганна. Then the english translation will be the same in his passport

Thanks Michael. I am handwriting everything into the form, so putting the special characters in for his name is not a problem. 

 

I guess what is still confusing to me is at what point or how does he decide how his last name should be spelled in English, for the eventual marriage license, green Card application ,and everything else?  For example if his last name were Bančić (it's not), phonetically that would be Banchich. So could he just write Banchich on everything when he arrives, and be okay?  It won't match his passport, which would show Bančić.

Does he have an "internal passport" and an international passport. Most of the time in the international passport will have english translation along with the native name. I know my wife's CR visa is written in english. I am not sure if it came from information we provided. Try asking the question in the country specific portal here at Vj......maybe google can be your friend :)

Thanks, I have tried much googling on this subject and haven't found any information.  I will look at the country-specific portal on VJ.  Thanks!

My last name has an umlaut and I wrote it the way it's written on the bottom of my passport. So ü turned into ue.
