Question about tourist visa and name split between first and last name in new passport - please advice


Recommended Posts


My father got a new Indian passport and the name has been split between first and last name in his new passport. Below is how it is currently. Need assistance to understand whether this would be a problem while entering USA. If some one has already faced this situation, please let us know. The name has not changed but only the way it is reflected in the first name and last name has changed.

My father previously visited USA on his old passport and had no problems, so I am concerned about the new passport and the split in name between first and last.

Old Indian passport
First Name - Shiva Gupta
Last Name - blank

USA Visa
First Name: FNU
Last Name: Shiva Gupta

New Indian Passport
First Name: Shiva
Last Name: Gupta

Thanks in advance.
