Applying for an ESTA usa visa. Anyone applied?

I have a question re my name on applying for an ESTA visa for the USA, has anyone applied recently?

On my passport my name is smith juco but this was rejected I then looked at the example they give which uses the part at the bottom of my passport details page and it states to use this info which has my name as p<GBRSMITH<<JUCO, I used this and it was accepted however I feel somewhat uncomfortable as this is not my real name and hope I dont get issues at border control.

Can anyone who has used this confirm which is correct I emailed them but have had no response.

Thanks

You are trying to get into USA on a false passport, using a false name? Presumably you think they will not notice.

We found they didn’t email back, we had to sign in to the esta system to get the messages including the visa it’s self, they just didn’t notify us of anything.

I have resent via the ESTA system.

I just find it strange that when applying it was forcing me to prefix my family name with GBR, until I put that on it was continually rejecting my application, the same happened with my wifes application.

Re: Applying for an ESTA usa visa. Anyone applied?

Could it possibly be something to do with your name?

juco…
An adjective to describe something substandard. It is derived from junior college. For example, junior college compared to a real university. It can also be used to describe poor workmanship, such as what you might get from a junior college "grad" or a vo tech "grad." Generally, being descibed as "juco" isn't a good thing.

https://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=juco

Imo a most inappropriate TLF moniker for such an erudite member – much better to stick with Smith 😊

And an off topic aside … my Ukrainian step daughter thought my name (also Smith) much more exotic than Odintsova and applied for a name change. Fortunately she married a Turkish chap before it was effected and is now Bahadir!
