PSW dependant visa, Partners name incorrectly spelled

Post by arsat14 » Thu Feb 14, 2013 3:40 pm

Hi, My wife got her dependent visa today, but my name (PSW partner) on the visa is incorrectly spelled. All of her details are correct. Would that be a problem at the immigration officer at the UK airport?

What must you do when you receive your biometric residence permit?

When you receive your permit, we advise you to make a photocopy of the front and back of it, in case it is lost or stolen. If you want to make another application in the future, you will need to send your permit to the UK Border Agency, so you may want to retain a copy for your records.

You must check your permit carefully when you receive it, to ensure that all the details on it are correct. If you find a mistake, you must email BRPError@homeoffice.gsi.gov.uk within 10 working days of the date when you received the permit, otherwise you may be charged for a replacement and will need to apply again. In your email you should state:
  • your full name;
    your date of birth;
    your nationality;
    your passport number;
    your biometric residence permit reference number;
    your case reference number;
    a contact telephone number; and
    what exactly is wrong with the permit.
If you do not provide all this information, there may be a delay in answering your query.

You can also send this information by post to:

    Returns Unit,
    PO Box 163,

Original op's dependant applied from outside the UK so I guess she need to contact relevant authorities in the country where she applied for entry clearance. Unless she can travel on the visa issued and then have it corrected once in the UK. Wait for some others to confirm.

Actually you are correct. I contacted Gerrys in Pakistan. I had to send an email and BHC gave me a reference number. I resubmitted the passport and got it back the next day with correction. GOing to UK in a couple of days :)
