Name Split on New Passport

Recommended Posts



I am on my OPT- EAD since march 2016. In my old passport, my entire NAME appeared in GIVEN NAME field. Therefore, I had my I20 and OPT application filled accordingly. On my EAD card,F1, SSN, Driving License and VISA my Name is : FNU , ***** KUMAR.


However, my passport was due for renewal and I have got my name split in my new passport .It is now:

First Name : *****

Last Name : Kumar


What all things I need to do to get my name corrected on and it what sequence?

  • VISA
  • I20
  • SSN
  • Driving License

what impact can it have when I apply for OPT extension or H1b Following year?  Any help would be highly appreciated
