    My mother got 10 year multiple entry visa. But Last name on the visa is spelled wrongly(Instead of E it is showing U). They are schedule to come on 7th of June. Will it create problem at port of entry?. Please help.

    Try to get the lastname corrected on the visa before departing.

    Not to worry

    I dont think you need to worry. Same thing happened on my father's visa 2 months back. The visa had firstname + lastname under lastname and firstname said FNU meaning FIRST NAME UNKNOWN. They wrote an email to the US Consulate and they replied saying it should not be a problem for travelling. My parents are here in the US and no problem at the port of entry

    I guess you may want to play it safe and get it fixed if there will be a future GC application etc. It's messy enough as it is, why complicate things.. Can't they request the correction by mail?

    I once heard of somebody whose airline was being fussy because name on the airticket didn't match the name on passport..
