Name on passport differs from air ticket

Jump to last reply


- I am travelling on a European passport (Visa waiver program), via Emirates to the USA. The spelling of my first and middle names differ slightly from my air ticket to my passport.

I do have dual nationality / a 2nd passport (South African) which shows the correct spelling - but this passport doesn't have a US visa, hence me travelling with the European passport.

Changing and reissuing the ticket is approx $ 400! :-(

Will I have problems with immigration control going into or out of the USA?
Or travelling on flights within the USA?
