A cautionary tale that illustrates the importance of accuracy when filling in the entry and of course the DS260. IN this DV2015 case a simple mistake costs Green Card for the selectee in Ghana.
Let’s call this gentleman John Smith. John attended his interview a few days ago and was denied his visa for a simple mistake that I believe to be nothing more sinister than a genuine error. The CO denied him because his original eDV entry (not the DS260, the online entry itself), showed him as having no first name – just a middle and lastname. In reality his firstname was in the middlename field.
The gentleman sent me some screenshots of his eDV confirmation page and his 1NL (the “you have been selected” letter).
The eDV shows his entry as Smith, John – exactly as you would expect.
The 1NL has his name (above the address and after the “Dear”) as “NFN John Smith” and “Dear NFN John Smith”.
Check out this image. There is a checkbox under each name, and the NFN is printed when someone has selected “No First Name”. These fields are process by computers, so I would be certain that the selectee made that mistake, KCC don’t retype anything. The Confirmation on the entry makes sense (i.e. not showing the firstname), and the first clue of the error was the NFN (No First Name) on the 2NL. However, it is OBVIOUS that is you provide a middle name, and say there is no first name, then the name provided as the middle name is actually your firstname.
However, all submitted cases are checked for duplicate entries, so they may believe that John Smith tried to enter with John as the firstname and John as the middlename (in a second entry). The CO could have put him on AP and put the case back for checks on John Smith, but for some reason he decided not to do that. The embassy/CO was particularly harsh, and the embassy is one (Accra, Ghana) that shows up as one with very high denial rates as shown in my league table .
What could he have done. Well if he had understood the critical nature of seeing NFN on his 1NL he could have contacted KCC and he could have possibly have got them to re-run the background checks prior to scheduling his interview. It might have delayed things but it would have diffused the issue somewhat. KCC would not have corrected the error itself, but they would have passed the case to the embassy with a file note explaining that both names had been checked. As it is, the selectee has lost his chance for the Green Card and spent money on the medicals and processing fee – not a small amount of money in Ghana.
The lesson for the rest of us is to take these issues seriously. I read time and time again stories from people such as “my brother knows someone that had that problem and he got away with it, blah blah”. Sure, some cases will be accepted with errors, and some won’t – but why take that risk on what is such a simple process if we just follow the instructions and take advice from genuine experienced people.
simple mistake costs Green Card
June 25, 2017 at 14:48
which list? after selectee i listed them sd 260
June 25, 2017 at 14:54
Did you enter the children on the original DV entry?
June 25, 2017 at 15:15
no the original after selectee
June 25, 2017 at 15:18
Then you will be disqualified if you proceed to interview.
June 25, 2017 at 15:29
because i did’t make another mistake ,thank you so much
June 26, 2017 at 05:28
my children not fill on add applicant they fill on my form life history ,please give me advice what shall just stop the process and i will try to be the next dv 2019 programme ?
June 26, 2017 at 06:40
Disqualification is certain. Try again next year – but be honest and read the instructions!!
July 9, 2017 at 15:53
Hello, I made a mistake in my edv entry, on marital status I wrote separated because we don’t leave together with my boyfriend with whom we have two kids who bear his sir name but I listed the children on my application.because we don’t have papers to show separation since we have never been together ,
1.should I proceed as single or I just procecced as initially applied?
2.will this lead to my denial of visa or will they give time to explain myself? Im in Kenya. The dad has no problem with me moving with his kids
Thanks in advance
July 9, 2017 at 21:09
The instructions are very clear that separated is a particular status that REQUIRES legal documentation showing the separation at the time of the DV entry. Without that, you will be disqualified.
August 8, 2017 at 21:07
Hi please I was selected for the dv lottery but my name on birth cert/passport is slightly different from name on school certificate, what can I do
August 9, 2017 at 00:21
Proceed with the correct name (birth cert/passport). Try and find other proof that the educational document is yours.
August 26, 2017 at 16:52
Am from srilanka,am winner of 2018.my birth certificate says my name Umesh Sanjeewa perera .but srilankan custom we can use our gay name .my gay name is kumarapathivithanage don.other all documents I have with my gay name.passport,education certificates and my marriage certificate. In edv I fill my name like this first name – Umesh middle name- Sanjeewa surname – perera didn’t add because kumarapathivithanage don is not our surname mother reason is not enough space to fill it.ds 260 I match my name through passport. Course of enough space I fill like this perera,k Umesh Sanjeewa perera.I checked us embassy website they said srilankan names are too long and different than other country. Brit my gay name missing in entry is it make a problem?
August 26, 2017 at 17:04
First of all, the translation of “GE name” to “gay name” is a bit misleading in English. The word “gay” is a term the homosexual community use to describe themselves.
Now – I am not an expert on SL names. I don’t want to advise you. I think you can use your own judgement.
March 1, 2021 at 16:11
Could you please tell me what happened to your interview?
August 26, 2017 at 17:23
Thanks Brit. If it made a problem I can support affidavit in my interview?
August 26, 2017 at 17:58
If you want – but you are providing official documents already – so I can’t see what the affidavit will add.
August 27, 2017 at 07:59
In srilanka we can get certified affidavit from supreme court(highest court) for name problems.nother thing is my prior passport does’t have my GE name.in SL we can have a Right to choose use ge name or not.if it so I can support my old passport prove for my name?
August 27, 2017 at 15:07
You clearly know more about procedures in your country than I do – so use your best judgement.
August 29, 2017 at 12:36
OK brit,thanks for your valuable advise.birt are they review my first entry with my wife and baby’s details.am telling truth brit.my birth certificate doesn’t have GE name its says only Umesh Sanjeewa perera .in entry I filed like this.my passport and other documents have GE name is it course of denial?
September 16, 2017 at 16:07
Hello brit, am again.I can do change my passport name as Umesh Sanjeewa perera prior 2passports doesn’t have my GE name.but problem is my marriage certificate and educational certificate name including with GE name.if I change my name in passport I have to change my D’s 260 also .then can I add my name (with ge name)as a other name.what is the best thing brit?
September 16, 2017 at 17:19
We have discussed all this. Now you need to use your own judgement.
October 16, 2017 at 14:24
Am really sorry am again and again ask this matter from you.can you give me answer for this question my current passport says my name appears on kumarapathivithanage don Umesh Sanjeewa perera I already fill ds 260 provided name as my current passport. But edv I use my name as Umesh Sanjeewa perera (its match my birth certificate and previous passport) if I can add other name in alias section as Umesh Sanjeewa perera?
October 16, 2017 at 15:26
Yes – you can use that field.
October 16, 2017 at 16:57
Thank you very much
October 5, 2017 at 11:41
Hi Brit. Quick question. I have a diploma from a college for surgeons, however there is no options for this in the application form. Do I choose university degree ? What option would be advised to choose? Thank you!
October 5, 2017 at 12:31
Use your own judgement to determine what the equivalent would be.
October 19, 2017 at 03:59
My name and my wife’s one were filled correctly in the DV2019 entry form . But I think I have switched between the first name and the last name for one of my two derivative kids. Is this big problem?
October 19, 2017 at 04:59
October 19, 2017 at 14:11
October 22, 2017 at 04:52
When filling in my DV2019 entry I mispelt my family name MIUPE instead of MUPE, Only caught it after submission I screwed-up right??
October 22, 2017 at 06:25
Hi, Just picked this up in your FAQs…
“So – is this a problem. Well, at most embassies, a single small mistake will be forgiven. By simple I mean things like a day (or year Or month) difference in the date of birth , a simple mistake in a name (an obvious typing mistake).”
I guess I fall under the category of “Obvious typing mistake…U&I sit next to each other”
October 22, 2017 at 23:22
Hi brit you doing a great job…my consern is i play my familly separately… One picture i use was an old picture is it a problem? There is no Change in physiology…. And there other one i made mistake i submitted two application with different names …. I am a french from origin the first application i use surname as cirst name than i only notice that latdr than i submitted the correct one…will this one be disqualified?
October 23, 2017 at 20:35
The photo may not be a problem, but the multiple application should cause disqualification.
October 24, 2017 at 15:27
thanks Mr BritSimon
October 31, 2017 at 10:19
Hello, If i confused just surname and name places? instead of name i`ve put last name, instead of last name put name? i`ve got confirmation page, i read some guy successfully got Green Card in this case, what`s your opinion?
October 31, 2017 at 13:09
That can be overcome if there is no concern of fraud.
November 22, 2017 at 12:51
Hello i filled in the entry form for dv lottery 2019 and i’m not sure if the photo meet the requirements it is 600×600 pixels but the head is slightly bigger Than the oval shape in photo tool because the photo is 55 mm but the guy who filled in the form said it is not big deal.Will be denied visa if i win
November 22, 2017 at 14:50
November 22, 2017 at 16:07
even if it didnt meet the other photo requirements?and what if there was more than one mistakes in confusing city and district.also saying no in “are u claiming elligibility based on your country of birth ” instead of saying yes(i am from an elligible country ) and then choosing my country of birth in “if not you must enter the country from which u r claiming elligibility “
November 22, 2017 at 22:31
If you made some errors you could be refused. But first – see if you win.
November 23, 2017 at 14:24
December 13, 2017 at 13:54
I have interview tomorrow.
I saw only now that in sponsor letter/welcome letter the workplace name of sponsor is wrong. What can i do now?
December 13, 2017 at 14:47
Nothing. Just present the document as is.
December 21, 2017 at 23:00
1- I tried to enter on other names my full given name that is shown on university degree which is not enough space for one more letter .what should i do ?
December 22, 2017 at 00:14
December 22, 2017 at 00:34
or could I add my father’s grandfather name which i told you there was no enough space for it beside my surename.?
Thanks for the quick reply.
I really appreciate it.
December 23, 2017 at 19:52
this is my last question so I can submit my ds-260 form.
In other names section I tried to enter my full given names in the field as mentioned jn my educational certificate for example (mohammed tareq abdulcarem ahme) there was no enough space for one more letter which is (D) so I can write (Ahmed) in the field?
1-what is the answer to be typed ?
2-is it ok to mix the last two names to get enough space.
Thanks for all your work and help.
I really appreciate it.
December 23, 2017 at 20:35
1. Your full name.
2. No. If you HAVE TO, shorten a middle name.
January 1, 2018 at 06:16
I typed my middle name (Saber El Sayed) in the entry of the DV lottery 2019 and when I get my passport it’s written (Saber ElSayed) without space in my grandfather’s name (El Sayed) , I want to know if I win and if I typed it in the ds260 (Saber ElSayed) like the passport, and it will not have a space like I typed in the entry (Saber El Sayed) is this a big problem? or it will acceptable?
with my best regards
January 1, 2018 at 21:34
Not a big problem.
January 2, 2018 at 04:40
Thank you so mush, sir.
January 6, 2018 at 09:43
Hi Simon. I wanted to ask please supposed you got your appointment letter and found out that the name on it has slight difference of à letter like Abdirizack instead of Abdirizak. What is the best to verify your the same person. On top or that i have my interview On 11th Jan. Eagerly waiting for your feedbacks sir. Thanks
January 6, 2018 at 15:47
That signifies you mistyped the name in the eDV. That is not a problem if you typed the correct name in the DS260.
January 6, 2018 at 16:33
i figured out that ds260 has same details as my docs.. I hope now am on the safe side sir. Besides, still i need ur feedback. Thanks sir.
January 6, 2018 at 16:51
OK – then my previous answer applies.
April 28, 2018 at 12:19
I got a mistake while i was filling the DV registration and i am concern whether this is a problem for me or not.. i forget to write my last family affix .. only the affix .. i wote my name my family name but didn’t know to enter the affix on my last name as there is a last name affix in my passport. I emphasis only the affix on my last name not the entire last name. Please inform me about my problem. Will i reject if i selected as nominee for 2018 Dv lottery because of this error?
April 28, 2018 at 14:45
I don’t know what that is.
April 28, 2018 at 16:47
Let me explain by an example, My name and my family is:
I only wrote ( behnam najm)
Behnam as my first name and najm is my last name.. i didn’t write nasrabadi. Recently i got my passport i noticed that there is nasrabadi attach as the suffix to my last name
Did you get it?
Is there any serious problem for such a issue or i can edit it later if i will elect as a 2019 Dv visa some days later?
Thanks in advance to your respond and your guide..
April 28, 2018 at 18:38
If selected you can correct it.
May 16, 2018 at 11:31
i have just selected for DV 2019.but,my father name is slightly not correct compared to my documents(educational and other) as ZAHIDU (the correct one) ZAHID (incorrect and registered on entry form).
looking for your feedback . thanks a lot…
May 16, 2018 at 14:28
You can correct that in the DS260.
May 17, 2018 at 20:44
Was selected for DV2019 however I noticed whereas all my docs have given names Caroline(first) Jane(middle), I had filled eDV as Jane(first) Caroline(middle). Should I correct name order on DS260 or this is a basis for disqualification and so I should not proceed? Please advise. Thanks.
May 17, 2018 at 20:51
Correct it in the DS260. That would normally be OK.
May 17, 2018 at 21:55
Sir any possibility to second draw?
May 17, 2018 at 22:21
I don’t know. Wait and see.
May 21, 2018 at 06:16
Hello every one my sister has been selected in visa lottery for DV 2019. but mistakably the applicant switched her month and day in date of birth but the year is fine. is that gonna be a big issue.
May 21, 2018 at 16:11
She can correct it in the DS260 as long as this was not done to conceal multiple entries.
May 22, 2018 at 22:38
I wrote my girl’s name wrong, may I correct the name in the form?
May 22, 2018 at 22:46
June 1, 2018 at 08:00
My wife has been selected for DV-2019 but i have two concerns about E-DV.
1- I filled E-DV for (Me, Wife, Son) with our first, second and third names like.( Ahmed Magdi Ali), But our names in our passports is shows forth name like (Ahmed Magdi Ali Yasser) so is that cuse a visa denial in the interview.
2- I filled E-DV for son`s Name like that (Omar Ahmed Magdy) but i Filled E-DV for me like (Ahmed Magdi Ali) which there is different 1 letter spell between My Son`s grandfather name (Magdy) and my Father`s name (Magdi) so it that will be a denial visa on the interview.
So what should i need to do in this case ?
Do i need to correct Spelling on my son`s passport with (Omar Ahmed Magdi Ali)?
Or just leave his passport with the name like (Omar Ahmed Magdy Ali)
Please i waiting your kind feedback as till now i haven`t submitted our DS-260 application.
June 1, 2018 at 13:50
Complete the DS260 with accurate names, and make use of the other names used field if there is an actual difference
June 2, 2018 at 10:55
Respected , Britsimon
please I would like to let you know that I had done mistake when fill up ds260 form ,there was mention in form please start your work experiences with most resent one , but I have filled up forms with most previous one to resent one.
it must be , most resent one to most previous one, example: I started work from 2008 to till 2018 in different company but , I supposed to be start from 2018 , 2017 , 2016 till 2008 , but I filled up the form , 2008 , 2009 , 2010 , till 2018 ,
respected Brist , is this serious issue , or normal , if serious what I have to do for correction , your gaudiness is very helpful to me.
June 2, 2018 at 13:02
It’s not very serious, but if you are a DV2019 case you have plenty of time to change it anyway – so do so.
June 2, 2018 at 14:07
Respected Brit , please guide me how can I change this , because I have already submitted this and now it’s lock ,
June 2, 2018 at 14:55
Unlock. How? Read the FAQ.
July 4, 2018 at 07:01
Good Morning. I need you to guild me please. I won DV2019 and have already submitted the DS260 form. Unfortunately, i notice a date error yesterday. My high school education runs from March 20xx but I put in Jun 20xx. My university degree runs from Feb 20YY and I type in April 20YY. My child name in passport is James Morris Bright but birth certificate is Morris James Bright. Can these errors cause denial? How can this be corrected?
Thanks for your usual supports.
July 4, 2018 at 13:58
No big problem, but you can unlock to correct. Read the FAQ
July 4, 2018 at 14:10
Thanks for the prompt reply. Unlocking is to communicate with KCC right? Another question. If My Birth Certificate, Passport and Police clearance carries Morris James Bright and My school document carries Morris J. Bright. Is this an Issue?
July 4, 2018 at 14:17
Unlocking is covered in the FAQ.
No problem on the name.
Now. Read the FAQ and the other articles here….
July 4, 2018 at 14:21
Thanks for your support.
August 22, 2018 at 20:08
Good Morning. I need you to guild me please. I won DV2019 and have already submitted the DS260 form. Unfortunately, i notice a place of birth error yesterday.i was Originally born in Cameroon but my says IBI-ASOEGBE NIGERIA instead of DOUALA CAMEROON. Please how can i correct this mistake.
August 22, 2018 at 23:06
You can unlock and correct the mistake, but you will probably be expected to explain the mistake – and it will create suspicion.
October 28, 2018 at 12:55
Hello, please I just entered DV lottery 2020 and my middle name was mistakenly spelt as AWEDORA instead of AWEDOBA. Will it be a problem to me?
October 28, 2018 at 15:11
November 4, 2018 at 13:37
I have went through almost every single comment here to see if someone made the same mistake that I did, but apparently no one made such a dumb mistake as I did.
Here is the situation, in FIRST NAME, I have mentioned my first name and last name … and also in field of Last Name I have mentioned my Last name. So in my 1NL, I am addressed with my first name and my last name is repeated twice(i.e. John Smith Smith). I am from Afghanistan and I am really starting to get nervous about this mistake. Do you think I should inform KCC or should I just let it go and face the interview?
In my DS260 I have entered everything correctly though. Thank you for your time and advise! I know it should be taking you a whole lot of time to read and answer all these comments
November 4, 2018 at 15:13
You have informed KCC. There is some risk, but people are usually approved with such errors (if the DS260 is correct).
November 19, 2018 at 08:54
I’m Isaac from Ghana. I filed the dv 2020 and added my daughter. She has 2 middle names but because it asked for one middle name i used the one she’s usually called by. Can this lead to denial?
Also i just realised from screenshots i took of the application that i made a mistake with the birth year but the day and month are correct. Could that also lead to a denial? Especially combined with the middle name issue.
November 19, 2018 at 16:23
They are not concerned about small mistakes for children.
November 19, 2018 at 21:49
Oh great. Thanks so much.
December 14, 2018 at 09:37
Hi Brit, I mistakenly switched all of my family’s first and last names. I’ve won this year with this application, contacted KCC and wrote it as it should be in DS-260 form as they suggested. What are chances to get green card with this case?
December 15, 2018 at 04:02
It depends whether they think you are trying to commit some sort of multiple entry scam.
December 16, 2018 at 08:41
When I realized I did mistake I did not try to enter second application with the correct information since I knew I could be disqualified for multiple entry. Is there any chance to get GC if I did not apply multiple times?
December 16, 2018 at 14:23
February 22, 2019 at 13:37
hello, i have two questions to ask
1) my name on my certificates is Nkemtaji Alo-Alo Kedju and on my passport is Nkemtaji Alo Alo Kedju with a difference of a dash(-) in it but when i was applying for the dv lottery, i used but the name on my certificates asNkemtaji Alo-Alo Kedju. i really want to Know if i can use the name on my passport and write on the Ds-260.
2) when applying for the dv 2020, i use i photo tool to crop the picture and i added a little bit of brightness in my picture using the photo tool but i didnt do any retouching on the picture and the brightness i added didnt change or affect my face and but brighten the face and the background a bit, will my picture be disqualified in the dv,
February 22, 2019 at 17:10
1. The form will not accept the dash – so enter your name as is shown in the passport.
2. Probably not.
May 2, 2019 at 16:14
Hi, my problem here is, the guy who fill out the DS 260 online from checked no instead of yes to the question “have you ever use any other name before”, now my school document has a middle name I drop when I got married. I’m now using my family name as my middle name, what do I do?
May 2, 2019 at 17:33
You are responsible for what is in your form. If you are not already scheduled you could ask KCC to unlock your form to allow you to make the appropriate change. However, the risk of denial over that is small.
May 10, 2019 at 17:19
Hi Brit, I am the winner of the DV-2020. But now i realized that I made a big mistake which can cause denial of green card. When I was filling out DV-2020 application I mistakenly instead of putting my last name I put middle name and for middle name I put last name. For example, in passport my name is A , last name is B and no middle name.But, I have a middle name in my local id card and birth certificate as C. But I in dv-2020 application I put as first name: A and last name as C and middle name as B. What should I do? Do I need to reach out KCC and tell them I madea horrible mistake? Please help me
May 10, 2019 at 22:48
Enter correctly in the DS260. That’s all.
May 11, 2019 at 02:16
In my passport only First and Last name but no middle name. But, in my local id, school diploma and birth certificate I have middle name. So should I fill out as my passport or should I include my middle name as well in my ds-260. I really don’t want make any mistake in ds-260. Is middle name is optional or required. Please help me out…
May 11, 2019 at 05:27
The form requires your full legal name.
June 9, 2019 at 01:15
Hi Brit, let me ask you a question, my girlfriend was selected winner in the DV 2020 but she realized now that she made 2 mistakes when filling out the application:
1-Her name in the passport is A with last names B and C but she only put her name A and last name B, she did not put her surname C
2-In the education field she selected “Vocational School” when she has “High School”
Will the problem be very serious? Should she write to KCC to correct the problem?
June 9, 2019 at 01:40
1. She should put the correct name in the DS260
2. She should be prepared to prove at interview that it was not vocational school – but again that would be fine if she completes the DS260 accurately.
June 9, 2019 at 14:32
I know that you have commented that any error is a serious problem, so my question may seem silly, but you know that it ends with nerves to anyone hahaha, is this problem very serious, should not inform KCC by mail so they know about the error ?
Thank you very much friend, you do an excellent job helping people like us, it is a great pleasure to have known your website, a big hug for you that deserves it.
June 9, 2019 at 19:54
I have NEVER said “any error is a serious problem”. That is not correct. As for the rest – I already answered.
July 1, 2019 at 00:29
If u has been selected with the name makagbah Donzo and the passport missspill makagbah to makagbeh is that can be visa denied for visa
July 1, 2019 at 18:36
It depends whether they suspect fraud or not.
July 3, 2019 at 18:14
my high school certificate name starts with my middle name instead of my surname. All of my other documents have correct arrangement, from first name and the other names. can this affect my green card application during the interview.
My primary and high school certificates read: Alouda Brian Itava while my ID, Passport, and others have Brian Alouda Itava. Alouda is my middle name and not surname. Itava is my surname.
July 3, 2019 at 21:33
Doesn’t normally matter.
July 4, 2019 at 04:08
Thank you Brit. Well one more thing, in Kenya, there are two certificates awarded at primary school (elementary school) and at secondary school (high school). I have successfully completed both and currently hold a diploma from the Kenya Institute of Mass Communication. I am also already a practicing journalist here in Nairobi. I lost my primary school’s certificate and I visited our national examination to have a replacement but they said they no longer do that but print out one’s results and send the copy to the institution which requires it. In this case, I have my high school certificate though plus my diploma certificate. Will I be able to prove to the CO at the embassy that I have a diploma and a high school certificate and that automatically means I couldn’t proceed to high school without a primary school certificate and I couldn’t proceed to college without a high school certificate?

You don’t need the primary school cert.

I did my interview in Feb 2020 in Nairobi. The CO only requested for my KCSE. I did not have my KCPE. They never requested for it nor my university certificates or transcripts..

First time I applied for this type of lottery, my case is super peculiar, the space provided for my passport number was not enough! (beleive it or not)
Of course I entered as much numbers as I could, but I feel is like a big issue.
My passport has 10 numbers and it wasprovided 9 slots for this. What a pickle!
However my only confort is that for my country I all the applicants should be in the same place as me right?

In Ghana, inconsistencies like this can cause concern. Do whatever you think strengthens your case.
