My friend, an Indian citizen and a resident of France, entered the UK via Calais on a new UK Standard Visitor Visa issued earlier in this month. The officer stamped the date as '32 NOV 2018' on his visa, when he entered just past midnight on 23rd of November. What are the potential consequences and what should they do to get it corrected?
This is similar to How to correct a passport stamp in the UK?
In my opinion it is not a big issue particularly because everyone knows nothing exists like 32nd November and furthermore it is in their database in which nothing like 32nd November can be coded.
He can get it corrected at an international airport or port of entry.
At Heathrow (and I assume for other ports of entry) a few years ago when my lost baggage was found, I was asked to return to the airport where there’s a telephone you can use to call immigration and they will come and get you and take you back into the immigration area where this mistake can be corrected.
You can also use firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com to contact them like I did on a different matter. They do respond quite promptly.
