Hi everyone in this forum,
I have H1B approved and have a visa interview in early December.
I have filled all the visa interview forms ( DS-156 and DS-157 ) online and submitted, when i realized one mistake in the form DS-156 which i can't correct online. Here's the detail:
In DS-156, one has to mention his/her “other Surname/First names used”.
I was on F-1 status initially and my F-1 visa ( including other forms like I-20 etc) had name "FNU RAHUL YADAV". This was because my passport DIDN’’T had my surname. I got my passport corrected at the Indian consulate, San Francisco, and now my new passport has my correct name "RAHUL YADAV"
While filling the DS-156 form initially, i mentioned NA for "other surname/given name used". Now i can't correct those online.
My questions are:
1. Can i edit the printed copy of the DS-156 form manually with a pen or pencil and mention my
Other Surname used: RAHUL YADAV
Other Given Name used: FNU
2. Since, I applied for the new passport ( to include my surname in the passport), at Indian consulate, San Francisco, I have mentioned the following in DS-156 form:
Place of issuance:
Country: United States
Issuing country: India
Please let me know if for #2 above, I have filled in the right details.
Any response in this regard, would be highly appreciated.
