I am in the following situation. I have a name I prefer to use for personal reasons but the name on my passport is different.
If I apply for travel support for a conference, the recommendation letters will be for the preferred name but the invitation letter for visa, if I am to use it, should be for the legal name. What is the protocol for informing the organizers about this discrepancy?
In my previous experience, when my preferred name and my legal name were the same the organizers issued the letter for my preferred name without checking whether it is my legal name so action from my side must be necessary.
When you apply, there is a form; should I simply fill out the name field like "Preferred Name (legal name: Legal Name)"?
