Is passport number OK?

Hi experts and gurus (Mr. Miller and others),

On my LP, in the passport number field, states my passport number: CHN146xxxxxx You
may think it weird that where does that prefix CHN come from. Well, that was my
fault. Because when I prepared the application, I provided that prefix along with the
passport number to Buffalo (CHN stands for China, which is displayed at the "country"
field on my passport.)

Will that be a problem at POE?

Thanks,

James

This prefix shouldn't cause any problems as long as numbers are identical - just
explain everything to examining officer. But if you still have time before your
planned landing then you may consider sending your LP back to Buffalo for correction.

The consistency of the landing documents and the passport is critical at the time of
landing. If the CHN does not actually appear in your passport number, then it may be
necessary to return the landing documents for correction.

Thank you for your advice.

Since my LP visa will expire in early April, I don't want to take the risk to send my
LP back to Buffalo for correction. Who knows when I can get them back again? And
maybe another medical exam will be required at that time because of my medical
expiration. This seems likely to cost too much, in terms of money, time and energy.
And I have also bought the non-refundable tickets to Canada...

On the first page of my passport, the first line displays in this format:
------------------
P CHN 146xxxxxx
------------------
And nothing above this line indicating what each field means (well, now passport of
new version does have additional header indicating what each field means, but not my
old version one!), so apparantly, it is really a minor mistake, isn't it?

Also, in the letter accompanying with my LP, "wrong passport number" doesn't exist in
the "Must Report List".

Above are my understanding,

thanks for your comments,

James

I have just called the Buffalo call center. A lady told me that the POE officer will
correct it if there is an error.

Thanks,

James
