Dear Immigration Lawyers,
I have a problem I would like to let you know. My name (as stated on my passport, and on the birth certificate) is listed as Giovanni Antonio Solluzzo. But on some documents such as my Swiss Diploma is listed as Giovanni-Antonio Solluzzo. I tried already to put the hyphen at my DS-260 application and it stated that I cannot use it. Would it pose me a denial if the Consular Officer sees that I have two different names on my documents ?
Giovanni Antonio Solluzzo (passport and birth certificate)
Giovanni-Antonio Solluzzo ( in some of my documents I need to submit to the NVC and show to the Embassy at the interview.
Use the name as it appears on your birth certificate.
