Correction in spelling of my name


Recommended Posts

Hello All, hope everyone is safe and sound during covid. I have a query and hoping someone is able to help me. Any help is much much appreciated!

My mother's passport has her name as "Kamula Sharma". Her real name is "Kamala Sharma". She has a US visa on her password under the name "Kamula Sharma". Recently we decided to fix this problem and get her name in the passport corrected. They attached the old passport to the new passport. Now her passport name has "Kamala Sharma" and US visa has "Kamula Sharma". She has travelled multiple times to the US in the past but we booked her ticket under her password name. 

Can we continue to travel on her new password attached to the old passport which has the VISA? OR 

Do I need to get her a new visa with the right name? OR

Does the US consulate give her a re-stamping knowing it is spelling correction but the same person?
