I need an L1B for an assignment in US. I need to obtain it as soon as possible. I also intend to take my family (wife and 2 sons) 3 months after I go to US. The issue is that the name on my second son’s passport is printed inaccurately (only first name is printed as given name whereas the family name is not printed at all). My question:
1. Can I go for L1B stamping (L2 for my family) without correcting my son’s name? I know the question sounds moot as one must correct the name in passport. My argument is (or rather I hope that): my son’s first name is printed correctly and his passport contains names of both me and my wife; is it not enough? Moreover if I get the L2 for him, will there be challenges during the travel? By the way, my this son is 3 years old (if that has any relevance). Given the answer to this question is not likely in affirmative, my next question.
2. Can I go for L1B stamping with my wife and the son whose passport is all good? Meanwhile I will apply for the name change for my second son. I will go once again (or just send my wife if I happen to be in US that time) for the stamping for my second son? Since this is more hassle for me, my next question.
3. Is it no harm if I went for L1 stamping alone; and once my son’s passport is corrected, my family goes for L2 stamping (with me if I am still in India otherwise without me).
Your advice in this regard will be much appreciated.
