Contact / email the consulate immediately. Let them know that they've made a mistake. Unfortunately, this is a common error. You'll have to return the passport and get a revised version of the visa. Hopefully you didn't book a ticket yet.

I emailed them, thank you. How long does it take for them to fix it and send it back?

They'll ask you to submit the passport. Then they'll take a couple of days to rerun the visa. Then they'll send it back to you. A week? maybe two? normally not more than that.

Thanks. How many cases like this have you seen? This is for Canada specifically? (Sorry you don't have a location listed)

Is that just a general comment? Or do you know if they tend to be quicker with this sort of thing? Lol sorry, can't tell from your tone

Expect them to be stupid slow.  LOL

 

But rarely they will take a week or two for something this simple.  So you can hope.

Are you talking about the time for them to respond to my email or for them to fix this once they have the passport?

I'm going to update this thread if anyone's curious or has a similar issue.

 

They replied to me today. Not sure if it's pretty much an auto email or if they started reviewing my case. They basically said my request is being reviewed and I will be provided with the necessary instructions once the review's done.

Update: I got an email from Montreal-IV-DV@state.gov saying that they have forwarded my email to the visa unit, and they will advise on what to do. Hmm, I thought they were the visa unit...

I emailed Montreal-IV-DV@state.gov last week about something (a typo on my issued visa - though I'm not sure if that's too relevant for this thread).

 

Today they told me they forwarded my email "to the visa unit for followup". I'm confused since I thought they were the visa unit...

 

If not, is there an email I can contact the visa unit from? Otherwise I guess I will just have to wait for them to contact me first.
