I am from India and I am working in the USA on H1B VISA. I want to apply B2 (visitor) visa for my parents but I have a situation ( as below) where I need your inputs.
All my father's documents have different last name "ABC" (his mother's maiden name) than his original surname(which is not there on any of his documents). Whereas his original surname "XYZ" is carried into all my documents including my passport.
Recently my parents got their passports. Since the documents required for applying passport are carrying his official last name(my father's mom's maiden name), my dad got his official surname "ABC" on his passport. So now the last name for my dad is different in his passport and my passport.
No issue with my mom's passport though. Her last name and my last name ( i.e., my dad's actual surname) are same in our passports.
Can you please let me know :
- If it is an issue for my parents' visitor visa because my surname is different from my dad's in the passports?
- What are the corrective measures to be taken to overcome this problem?
- Also, my passport is about to expire in two more months from now. Will it be an issue at the time of visa interview for my parents' visitor visa ???
