Hello there! So I collected  our  passports  today  through  aramex.  My  son  noticed that  his  gender was  printed  as "F"  instead  of  "M". 

anyone  encountered  this  problem? how  long  does  it take  for  embassy (SGP)  to  process? will they  retrieve  K1  passport  too?  we  already  booked  our  tickets  !!!

I want to  stay  calm  but  ...im  really  starting  to  panic!  HELP!!!!

Don't panic! -- One of the first things when getting a visa, is checking all the details are clear. Mistakes are bound to happen and the embassy knows, as they suggest you check all information on the visa before usage. Simply contact the embassy and let them know of the mistake and they will have you bring back the Visa to be corrected. 


Good luck!

I don't know if anybody is going to be able to answer how long it takes. You have to ask the Embassy. The correct way is to let them know and they can fix it. 


I am going to give you an example, this is what I did, and I am not advocating you do this in any way, shape or form: I got my green card, this was several years ago. Pretend my country of origin is Singapore (I just randomly picked that). On my green card, it said my country of origin is "North Singapore". It was very clear that no such country exists. Did I do anything with it? No, I kept and used it for 3.5 years until they took it away at my Oath Ceremony. Did anyone ever asked about that? Not a soul. What if they did? "Oops, I never noticed that. How interesting!!". Ignorance is a bless.
