I have my visa with my surnames swapped — instead of being Garcia Lopez it is written in my Visa as Lopez Garcia, the surname is written correctly just swapped I was wondering if that would be a problem in the US?

    If I were you, I'd ask the issuing consulate to correct their error. – phoog Nov 25 '17 at 13:44
  • Yes, this would be a problem unless your passport has also them swapped. – George Y. Nov 26 '17 at 4:34

    While you should try to get the consulate to correct the error, it's also true that everyone has seen this error with Spanish-style names before. – Andrew Lazarus Nov 26 '17 at 5:08

    US immigration won't be your only problem, but also getting on the plane. Get it fixed immediately with the consulate – Crazydre Dec 10 '17 at 14:38
