A question about beneficiary's name in local alphabet...

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My fiance is from Bosnia-Herzegovina and they use both serbian cyrillic and a latin alphabet with special letters. His name in the latin letters (with the special) letters ends in "ć". I filled out the section of his name and address in the serbian cyrillic alphabet. Would I include his name with the special character in section 8. Additional information?

English, except when noted.  https://travel.state.gov/content/travel/en/us-visas/visa-information-resources/forms/ds-160-online-nonimmigrant-visa-application/ds-160-faqs.html

 

All answers must be in English, using English characters only, except when you are asked to provide your full name in your native alphabet. Applications submitted in any language other than English will be denied, and you may be required to submit a new application.

While you must answer all questions in English, translations of questions are available in many languages from the drop-down menu in the right upper corner of the application. These translations should assist you in completing the form in English.

I answered in English and in the english duration of the form except as noted when it asked me. However, there is an alternative "spelling" to his name with the special character. Do I put that into the additional information or can I skip that?

Does he have any legal documentation you are attaching which has the alternative spelling? Like his birth certificate or passport?

 

Personally, I would write the alternative spelling in the "Native Alphabet" section and then explain more in the Additional Information section.

he does have it written as such in his passport. I think I'm going to write it in the additional section pertaining to the native alphabet section just to be on the safe side!

Girl I filled the Additional Information section with so much! Better to address anything potentially unclear than risk an RFE. Good luck :)
