DOB in passport is different from Birth Certificate


My date of birth in birth certificate and passport is different.In my visa the date of birth in passport is recorded.Is it possible to change the date of birth in Visa?Whom I should contact to do the same?Please advise.

When did you notice this mistake? if your visa was issued recently , you can call consulate and ask them to fix the issue. If its too late, write to the consulate with the copies of your visa, passport and birth certificate, they would direct you how to fix it. But make sure that you send this letter in a registered post and keep a copy of the papers that you have sent and the receipt of the registered post. These can be used later to prove that you have attempted to correct the issue.

If your visa is expiring soon, dont worry.

BTW, if you have already entered into US with that mistake in the visa stamp, I dont think that you need to be worried much(if you dont plan on travelling outside the country before its expiration).

Thanks for your answer.
My situation is this.Currently I am in US.But within six months i need to apply EAD.I understand birth certificate is one of the necessary document to apply EAD.Because of difference in BC and Passport I don’t know what to do?

What class of EAD? (GC based/L2 based or H4 based)?

GC based.I am in H4 now.My spouse PREM approved.

I re-read your original question.
It looks like I need to advice in a different way.
Which is the correct data of birth document?(Birth certificate/passport)?
Ideally, your passport details are the basis for you. If you have a different date on your birth certificate and needs to fix it, there is an easy and must to do way to fix it(instead of fixing the date on passport and visa etc). Usually since your passport is your official identification document, visa would be issued based on your passport details only, they doesnt use anything else. Fix your birth certificate using an affidavit along with a “Birth details not found” letter from the local authority from your birthplace (as per your passport).

I fixed the issue through proper channel.

How did you overcome this issue? I’m currently in the same situation and would really appreciate any help in this regard.Thanks in advance.
