Some Afghan SIV applicants are mistakenly worried that their name have been entered incorrectly or misspelled in US government documents or notices.

The confusion arises with naming convention order of Last Name, First Name. If your document or notice has this naming format, then do not worry about it. This is normal and not a mistake. 

Lets examine the Form i-797C sample below.

The Last Name or Family name is written first followed by First Name. Notice the comma “,” separating the Last Name from First Name



What do if your US government document or notice has misspelled name or other mistakes?

You can submit online inquiry form to request correcting your name and/or other mistakes. The form is link is: e-Request – Typographic Error
