We are twins with different places of birth mentioned in the passport with the same date. Both places of birth are in India. Is there going to be an issue? I have already traveled to a few countries.

My brother lives in the US on an H1B and I want to visit him on a B1 visa. Will there be a problem?

    Is there a reason you don't just get one set of documents corrected to your actual place of birth? Or were you actually born in two different physical locations? – Roddy of the Frozen Peas Aug 9 '18 at 3:08

    @RoddyoftheFrozenPeas This is India, "just correcting" documents is a bureaucratic nightmare of Kafkaesque proportions. – jpatokal Aug 9 '18 at 4:32
  • I mean, it's not impossible, and if it turns out to actually be a problem in the long term for whatever reason, it sometimes ends up worthwhile to just fix the darn thing. – Roddy of the Frozen Peas Aug 9 '18 at 6:42

    I am sorry for the personal question, but is it an error? or did it really happen? – Nean Der Thal Aug 9 '18 at 8:11

There will not be a problem. Your application will be assessed on its merits regarding your income, ties to India etc; they're not even going to see your brother's passport.

In the very unlikely event of being asked about this though, it would be good to have a clear explanation of what happened. (And Travel.SE wants to know too!)
