    Hi Sreejan,

    Its a common error in most of the passports..As long you fallow same seqence in visa applications it will not be a problem..

      Hi Srini ,

      I also have a similar case in my passport..
      I hold a valid B1 visa and in the visa my name appears as FNU Name1 Name2 , though the Name 1 and Name 2 appears only in the given name section of the passport and not a part of the surname ..

      Recently, I came to know of a similar case where a person with his name as FNU Name1 Name2 in the visa having problems getting his SSN Issued ..
      Though i know that VFS site clearly mentions applicants to use FNU in the surname section , if there is no surname mentioned in the passport .... And the visa issued henceforth as FNU Name1 Name2 ..

      Does this create confusions later when u enter US ? Is it advicable to get the same changed in the passport ? I am soon gonna apply for my H4 ..
      Please advice ..

      Thanks

          I have applied for a Tourist Visa for my mother last day and the Interview date is on May 02.
          Her name in Passport is like this:

          Surname: ....................(blank)
          Given Names: MARY VARGHESE

          On the Online Application Form I entered,

          Surname: MARY VARGHESE
          First and Middle Names: FNU i.e., First Name Unknown (On website they asked to use like that if I want to)

          Is it correct or not?
          In my Interview Letter the name displays as FNU MARY VARGHESE

          Whether it make any issues later when I apply an Immigrant Visa or GC for my mom?

          If it is wrong please do I need to cancel the Appointment since I am not able to modify those fields?

          Is there any problem If I split her name and write first name in first & middle name cloumn and last name in surname column in DS-156?

          Can I make the Observation at Passport Office and show this change to take effect in my DS-156 at the time of Interview?
