Dear Editor: There is a need to revisit the issuance of birth certificates and the correct spelling of names at the Registry.
One will recall that in 2016 the Registry of Civil Status was confronted with myriad problems about birth certificates. The main bone of contention then was the correct spelling of names.
Is it possible that the authorities could face a similar scenario? What should one do if he/she discovers that the spelling of a name on one’s passport is different in the case of a new one and a visa passport?
The reference here is the incorrect spelling of the person’s name. Surely this could become a complicated matter for one ‘s reapplication for a visa. This is not a far-fetched scenario and therefore the authorities here should consider it and invite persons facing such a dilemma to come in and have it rectified.
It could be a reality.
