I recently got my passport and the following fields in the passport are mispelled.

1) Given Name
2) Surname
3) Mother's Name
4) Father's Name

I consulted the RPO in hyderabad and found that it was a clerical error. They wrote my corrected names in the first page and got it stamped and signed by the passport superintndent.

Now my question is this: When I go for visa,etc.. they might not turn the page and see my corrected name. Instead, they might either issue a visa with my wrong name on the cover of the passport or they might reject my visa application.
Am I right ? If so is there a solution for this like attaching a letter along with the visa application, detailing these issues ?

Thank You

The number of people on this site who ask about clerical errors on passports defies belief. Who do they employ to do this work, trained baboons?

As you have seen, there is always a chance of someone not doing their job carefully enough.

I would write a covering letter with the visa application, and also stick a post it (removable) note to the incorrect page saying "See next page for spelling corrections"

Yes the passport processing staff are a weird breed of people. My wife was told that she could not sign so had to make a thumb impression. Then when her passport needed renewing in the UK they could not understand how someone who could only make a thumb impression could now sign her application. After a few phone calls they relented and accepted the signed app.

That is because it is a well known fact that women cannot write, it makes their brains overheat...

That is almost as stupid, and downright patronising. Even if someone had been illiterate at some point in the past, why assume they always will be? Is the assumption that they are somehow congenitally unable to read and write.

The world is full of intelligent people who have not yet had the privilege of being taught to read and write, who only need an opportunity to learn.

Honestly, sometimes I think that education is wasted on the British!

Haylo, I had the same problem here w/ my US passport. Sounds like it could be a job requirement in some other circles as well I had to send in my passport back not once but twice!

First the idjits made a printing error with my surname/maiden name. Next, they decided I should have Jay's last name so they sent it back with his surname as opposed to what I filled out for me. So back it went again. Took a total of 5.5 months to get it all sorted out. Trained baboons would have been more efficient as they might not have tried to make decisions for me that are none of their beeswax!
