I just moved to USA from Pakistan like 6 months back. My husband is a US citizen and I am a US green card holder (permanent resident). I am pregnant now and I really want my family to be here with me during this emotional and beautiful time. My parents are overjoyed as they are becoming grandparents for the first time and they can’t wait to come and meet me and their grandchild.
The only problem is my mother had been to the USA in 1992 on a tourist visa, but the spelling of her first name (she now spells it with an “e” and back then she used an “a”) and date of birth (“28” then and “22” now) on her all old passports (before her wedding) is different from now (after her wedding). Her last name changed after she got married, which is very common, but also there was a spelling mistake in her first name and the day in the date of birth (month and year are the same). It was due to clerical mistakes back then and she has no idea why it wasn’t corrected.
Now she has to again apply for her USA tourist visa. Should she get the new passport and id card using the old name spelling and date of birth when she visited the USA before? Or she should continue with her current information? But how? Her past record of visiting the US will have different information, and they won’t be able to find her on the basis of her new information. What is the solution?
