I have a doubt regarding a difference in signatures on Passport & I-20. Could you please help me with that?
I received my passport in early 2007 when I was in engineering last year. At that time I had a very simple signature which my passport is bearing now. Later on I changed it for banking & other purposes but forgot to get updated on passport. Now, I have different signatures on my I-20 & my passport.
Would that be a problem during VI or Immigration? My visa interview is scheduled on 8th of December. I have traveled to many other EU countries with same passport but I never had any problem. Mostly I will attend the interview with same passport as I don’t have time now to change it. I will let you know what happens to me so that it will be useful other HSB readers.
I don’t think you have to worry about signature mismatch.
That’s one practice I would like banks in India to change. People’s signature change. But, banks in India will not authorize transactions of signatures is different.
When you apply for passport renewal, you will get updated signature. I haven’t come across any instances in Us where service was denied, because of my signature mismatch with passport.
My signature have changed over the years, compared to the what I have in my passport. When I tried to get some things done with bank in India, they said, signature doesn’t match. It’s kind of pain to update the signature in the bank in India, while you live in USA. Not to mention the customer service.
