My son is 10 years old. The first name spelling on the passport and the USA Visa has a difference of 1 letter. Will it be ok to travel?

I have a Gazette copy and an affidavit that mentions his name wth the old and new passport number. Will these documents be ok for US immigration?

    What caused the difference? If it was a mistake by the US consulate, you should ask them directly. – krubo Apr 27 at 9:14

    Also: is the spelling consistent in the Machine Readable Zone of all documents? – krubo Apr 27 at 9:15
  • Did you replace the passport and change the name in the passport? – Michael Hampton Apr 27 at 14:51

They should be but it is better to contact the consulate for a name change since you've changed your passport name (especially if this is the consulate's mistake).
