Vietnamese names format

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, 

 

I am confused as to the format of names in Vietnam and how they should be organized. My Fiancees name as it appears on her Vietnamese identification card is Tran Thi Mai Hanh on her identification card. This is the same order how I wrote it in the Letter of intent to marry which she signed when I was in Vietnam a week ago. As I am finishing I-129f application I have come to understand and wrote in that her First name is Hanh, middle name is Thi Mai and Last name Tran. In the American format her name would be Hanh Thi Mai Tran. Is this how I should have written it in the letter of intent or is it OKk that I submit it as her name appears on her Vietnamese identification card as I have it? I dont want to run into a situation where they question if this is the same person as a result of the order of her name. Thank you.

I know that there're a lot of confusions about how to fill out Vietnamese 4-letter name on a document.  For me, I wrote her name as the American naming format on the Intent to Marry letter and everything was fine.  When you get to fill out the DS-160, you'll have this problem again as on DS-160 it asks to fill out exactly as it shows on the passport but then it'll be different with other documents as we filled out the American naming format.

This is how we did it. Yes it will end up being different, but then we are not asking the questions.

Last, first, middle two nanes
