My mom's passport has Last name/ Surname blank, while the US tourist visa has the First as FNU. Will this be a problem for entering US.

No. From the US embassy in the UK:

This is not an error. The visa is issued in the name that appears in the passport. FNU means First Name Unknown.

If the surname is not included in the passport as in the following example: Given Name: Happy Traveler; Surname: Blank.

The visa will be issued as follows: Given Name: FNU; Surname: Happy Traveler

If the passport contains only the surname of the holder and not a given name as in the following example: Given Name: blank; Surname: Happy Traveler

The visa will be issued as follows: Given Name: FNU; Surname: Happy Traveler

  • Appreciate your response. Do you know with what name it is preferable to book her flight tickets in that case? – visaquestion Mar 29 at 18:26
