Surname is not available in passport

Post by Niranjan GT » Wed Sep 12, 2018 10:40 am

Hi, I was issued a passport before the online system set up. My given name in Passport has my full name 'abc xyz'. Surname is blank. Now, while applying for visa, surname is a mandatory field. What do i fill in the given name and family name options in the UK VISA application? Please guide! Thanks!!!

What visa are you applying for?

You have posted your query in a visa category sub forum that is no longer available, i.e Tier 1 General.
