Issue with first name in I797 approval - H1-B Stamping

Recommended Posts

My first name on Passport : X Y Z ,   My last name : A

My first name on I-797 approval : X ,  My last name : A

This is a mistake in the I-297 petition when applying, but noticed after receiving the approval. 

I am going to India for Stamping in a month. Will that be an issue ? 

Thank you

YOur YZ portion of the approval was taken as a middle name and is completely ignored by the USCIS. This should not have any problem. But if you have time your attorney can get this fixed with the USCIS.
