i received my passport with b1/b2 visa on it but i found a mistake in my name in the visa ,as there is an extra letter in my middle name as follows
my full name in the passport is Mohamed yossri sabry abdelaziz mansour
my name in the visa is surname: mansour , given name: mohamed youssri sabry abdel aziz ( extra letter "u" in youssri)
all the other info in the visa is correct and exactly like in the passport.
the number of the passport mentioned in the visa is also correct.
this mistake is done by the employee of the us embassy as i submit correctly all my data in the ds 160
i don't have enough time to return the passport to embassy for correction as i will travel in the coming week ,i am afraid to face problems in us entry
Answered about 6 hours ago. Not a problem at all. Nothing to worry about. This is a common occurrence of (not even minor significance) when original names are not in the Latin alphabet but in another, in this instance Arabic and then they are "translated" by the letter's author to Latin, in his/own way of belief/understanding of how a certain name in their native alphabet should be spelled in Latin characters or foreign language. Every one reading this, and other letters and/or passport/visa will be able to realize that both spellings refer to the same person.

You will probably be fine. Carry your passport and birth certificate and if you are questioned about the name difference indicate it is a typo and the passport name is correct.
You may want to amend your DS-160 and it is simple to do. Or once you get before the consulate just remind the consul about the unintentional mistake.
