Name Format on I797

Recommended Posts


I recently got my Visa approved and my name on Passport and all documents as


Last Name : SHAIK

In my I797 approval I have my name as

First Name: SALMAN B.

Last Name: SHAIK

So, will this be any problem in future if I go for Visa stamping or for anything. Please let me know do I need to request a name change to USCIS or I don't need to worry about it.

Please advise.

There would be a problem during driving license renewal. I am going through almost similar situation and the solution is not easy.

I didn't have any problem during stamping and port of entries.
