Name on Biometric Card

Post by sriyab1 » Mon Dec 19, 2011 10:47 pm

I received my Tier 1 extension biometric card today and I noticed the name and surname is in reverse order.

ie NAME: Surname FirstName

This is as per the passport which has surname first.
But the approval letter has my FirstName and then surname.

Wanted to know if this is common or I need to get it corrected from Home Office.
Any advise/ experience will be of great help.
