No Middle name on Passport !!

Hi ,

In my passport , I do not have my middle name mentioned.

In coming days I am expecting a onsite trip to dublin . Will I be having any trouble in getting VISA or in any other process related to travelling ?

My other documents have my middle name mentioned.

Please suggest.

TIA !!

Passport needs to match airline tickets.

IF there is no middle name on the passport then just don't put it on your airline ticket.

I don't know what other documents you need besides your passport in order to get a visa?

I would imagine it will take more than a few days to get a Visa and no-one cares about middle names.

Some airlines specifically ask for the middle name if it is on your passport. I book people all the time and a red flag comes up when you enter the name that you only put the middle name in if it's on your passport. We only ticket people with their correct name, however it is on their passport.

#2 - the US appears not to care about middle names- but the rest of the world does! Your name needs to match OP - so leave the middle name off your flight tickets and visa applicatins
