Name on green card and passport different : India Travel Concern

Recommended Posts


My wife has the first and middle name on her Indian passport. She came to the USA on a fiancee visa and after our marriage, I (US Citizen) applied for her green card and the green card has last name (my last name). Her name on GC is the same as on our marriage certificate. 

Name on passport: First Middle

Name on Green card: First Middle Last

Will there be an issue if she travels to India from the USA, on the way back? Her fear is that since the name on her passport and green card don't match exactly, will she be denied entry into the USA, after her India visit? 

The last name is the same as mine.
