EEA Biometric Residence Card name format order question!!

Post by agv » Fri Aug 31, 2018 7:22 am

Hello everyone,
Yesterday I got my biometric residence card but I am a little confused on how my name was printed.
Everything is correctly spelled but since in my country we use two surnames (dad surname first, and mother surname after) I’ve found a little bit strange that they changed the order of my surnames as how they appear on my passport, I was wondering if that really matters?.
In my passport they are like this:
Last Name (Father family surname), Second last name (mother family surname), Given name (my first name).

And in the BRP appears like this:
Last Name,
Given Name, Second last name

I hope it’s not confusing.
I will appreciate if someone can help me.
Thanks and have a good day.
