Please note: For every immigration document you receive, check that the spelling of your name and your date of birth are exactly the same as listed on your passport. Passports must be valid for six months after your intended date of entry into the US. Copy all documents prior to departure for your own files. Carry all originals with you when you travel, and keep your copies in a separate place.
