Visitor Visa- Father name spelt wrong in my Mothers Passport

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

 

I am applying for visitor visa for my parents. I am sponsoring them.  I have scheduled interview for them in December last week.  There are 2 issues with the names in the passports.

 

  1. My mother has her spouse name 1 letter "A" missing in her passport. Instead of ''VENKATA" , her passport has "VENKAT" as she got her passport according to her voter ID. Will that cause an issue during the interview ?
  2. My passport has father name spelt wrong.1 letter "A" missing in my passport. Instead of ''VENKATA" , my passport has "VENKAT" as I got her passport according to my certificates. Will this cause an issue during the interview?
  3. Will preparing an affidavit that both "VENKATA" and "VENKAT" names are referring to the same person will work during the interview if visa officer asks about this?

 

Could someone help me with this? Thanks.

 

Thanks,

Ranjit

Technically you cannot apply for visitor visa for anyone. You cannot sponsor visitor visa for them. They need to apply themselves and schedule interviews.

1. should not be a problem. If she is comfortable with the misspelling using names as shown in passport is the simplest way. She can carry the voter id card as reference if questioned about mismatch.

2. your passport should not be an issue at their interview.

3. Affidavit can be prepared by your mother but do not volunteer any information not asked by VO.

Thanks Ashuneel for the replying.

 

Yes they applied visitor visa  but I helped filling all the forms (online profile, DS-160, payment of fees).

 

So you mean they should not take Form I-134 to the interview?

They can take I -134 to the interview which needs to completed by You. NO need to get it notarized. Remember it is only a supporting document and not a sponsorship letter and can be shown if asked. Above all they need to prove strong  cultural and financial ties to home country on their own.

one more question. Any idea how can we call for interpretor at the consulate office at hyderabad as my parents does not know english and they want to be interviewed in native language so that they answer confidently?

 

Will interpretors available on at the visa officers desk or how can we reach them?

 

Thanks,
