  • DS-156 Query

    Hi All,

    I renewed my passport in SFO and Place of issuance they have mentioned is “CGI SAN FRANCISCO” now my question is “Should I write Place of issuance in DS-156 column No 2, CGI San Francisco or only San Francisco. I believe I should write only SAN FRANCISCO not CGI SAN FRANCISCO.

    I have two more questions:

    1. After marriage my wife changed her name. In DS-156 column No. 18. Should I write her changed name or maiden name?

    2. in my wife’s DS-156 column No 9. Should I write her first name or complete Maiden name or should I leave it Blank (NA).

    Any help will be appreciated.

    0. San Francisco.
    1. The name in the passport.
    2. Look at https://www.immihelp.com/us-visa-app...n-form-ds-160/

      Thanks a lot for clarifications. Could you please clear this point.

      For Question No.1. (DS-156 Column 18) It is mentioned that "Include maiden Name Also" , so should I mention both names (Changed name and Maiden Name). IN my passport her changed name is written.

      Question No.2 (DS-156, Column 9) mentioned that " Other First name and middle Name used" She has not changed her first name, so I believe she should write NA, but as per guide line (immihelp guide line) it is written " Married women must be sure to include their full name as used before marriage.

      Thanks in advance.
