Hi,

I am about to apply for a visitor visa for my in-laws. But there is one problem. My wife's last name (or surname) on her passport is different than her parents (my in-laws). The difference is by one letter. I am not sure how much of a problem this will be. But we are little nervous.

I would appreciate if you could please put your thoughts on what need to be done (like can we submit any kind of forms or affidavits etc) so that we can do the needful and apply for their visas.

Thank you so much.

My wife's surname also had one letter extra than her parent's surname.

She got her H4 without any issues.

ask them to carry her birth certificate, 10th certificate, etc. with a copy of her passport - i hope all these documents have correct spelling of the names (even if there is a difference like missing/ additional letters)
