Passport issue

Passport issue

Just realized my passport has a wrong date of birth and same passport has already been presented to the US embassy for a tourist visa which i was denied. ...I just got to know the age on this passport is not correct, I want the passport change and the question is would this change cause any problems with the US embassy since the old record is there.....what do i do?

If you can change passport, but without change the number passport, I think you will not have any problems.

You need to talk to the US Embassy. Why was the visa denied? Will fixing the Bday get you the needed visa?

Your problem is more than the wrong date of birth - it is the fact that you were denied. You need to determine if that is why you were denied or if there was another problem. Then see if getting the birth date corrected would be the solution.

What - hey you have a big problem that is not a TA problem, you have a Ghanian passport with an incorrect birth date, well both those deals would result in a denial of a visa anywhere. A v quick look just at your TA history would deny you a visa to my neighborhood. Holy heck is the DJT effect that scammers just are overt...if that is indeed the case will any willing person please send me dollars, mexican pesos and/or dogfood to my TA address!!
