Discrepancy with beneficiaries name

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

So, we just noticed that on my Fiancées new international passport, they have her last name translated differently than on her old passport, and therefore, different than on her petition and DS160. Up until now, we've been writing her name in English as "ilchishena", whereas, her new passport has it spelled "ilchyshena". Will this be an issue at the Embassy or is this a common occurrence?

I highly doubt it will be an issue. In our case, in passport first name was spelled "Olha" which is apparently official Ukrainian way to transliterate Olga (Ольга) (Can't have it be same as Russian) We used Olga everywhere else, 129F and DS-160. Nobody  blinked an eye. I think they understand that transliteration discrepancies from Ukrainian alphabet to Latin will happen and the way English spells would be different then say German or French do. 

 

I would also suggest you ignore patronymic altogether, and don't try to use it as middle name. Then again, I don't believe patronymic is even mentioned in external passport.

Okay, good to hear. I was worried they were gonna make a big deal about it. It's such a minor thing really, cause two weeks after she's here she'll have a new last name anyway 😊

kind of related to this, Tali has her first name slightly misspelled in English as Nataliia, is this going to be a problem for her ticket or anything? it is spelled correctly in Cyrillic on her passport that she just got renewed a couple of months ago

Well when it comes to the ticket, just book the flight under however her name is written on the passport. No issues then. Does her name on her passport match what you wrote on the i-129f and ds-160?

we havent done the DS 160 yet. we are going to do it this weekend, and it is spelled correctly on the i-129f how it is supposed to be.

so the passport and i-129f don't match then? you're in the same boat as me. with it being her first name though I think it will be even less of an issue. nobody has chimed in saying even mines last name being messed up might pose an issue though, so I'm not worrying.
