I have been recently hired by a company based in the UK as a software engineer. As my official role is based in the UK, the HR department has asked me to start the visa process.
Before starting the visa process, I was reviewing my documents and noticed a spelling mistake in my fathers' name, and need clarification if this can be a problem.
- On all of my official documents (mark sheets, degrees, ID card, passport etc), my name is Muhammad Bilal Wasim, whilst my fathers' name is Shahid Wasim.
- In my fathers' official documents, his official name is Shahid Waseem.
For now, I'm planning to move individually to the UK but I may, at some point, want my parents to pay me a visit. Therefore, I need clarification if this will become a hurdle in obtaining my or my parents' visa in the future. If so, is there a way around it other than getting my / my fathers' name fixed across all my documents?
I have contacted various UK visa advisors - Some say this won't be a problem whilst others have suggested to create an affidavit and present it to the UK authorities whenever required. Not sure what's the best possible approach.
