ely My wife name was misspelled on her passport. Even though the name was mispelled the embassy in ukraine issued her visa with that information. They did not look at documents spelling for correctness. It is like they did not want to deny visa but let my wife travel 6600 miles to be denied entry in airport in united states by immigration officials.
Hello and thank you for requesting me.I agree that this was a serious misstep on the part of the authorities. However, this has to be straightened out before she flies. Her name has to match - be it to her (mistaken) Ukrainian Passport, or otherwise, everything has to line up. Otherwise she may not get through.Know that once she comes here and you marry her, she may always change her name legally and simply amend all her USCIS paperwork once the name is XXXXX XXXXXI hope this finds you well.
