Child H4 - Visa & Passport lastname different (Urgent)

Recommended Posts


My wife & daughter are in India currently and are planned to travel back to US in 10 days.

Both of them got their H4 Visa extension stamped in their passports last month.

Since my daughter's passport was going to expire in 3 months , we renewed the passport , however with a change in LASTNAME.

Now her old passport has the name & US Visa as "Firstname Geetha & Lastname : Ramakrishnan"

Her new passport has the name as "Firstname : Geetha & Lastname : Ganesh"

Is she allowed to travel with a different lastname between new passport & stamped US Visa in old passport.

We have her birth certificate (old & new) , newspaper advts referencing change in name , Affidavit referencing the same.

Will she be denied entry into the US , while landing here or will she be permitted entry without any issues based on supporting documents?
