Nishant Kumar

Timeline missing

I need urgent help and advice related to one mistake that I made in the 309 application.

I was using my first name Nishant everywhere and even on my passport. Now, I added my surname Kumar to it and full name is NISHANT KUMAR now. But in my application I said No in the section where I was asked if I am known by any other name or previously known by any other name.

In my previous Visa application(my PR), I have mentioned Nishant as my other name; name without surname.

Q1. So, what should I do now. Do I need to submit Incorrect Information form in my online application?
Q2. Does this silly mistake impact us in anyway?
Q3. Do we lose our credibility of providing information to Immi Department this way?

Q4. If we do fill Incorrect Form then should I choose, we both(Applicant, Sponsor) for this question:

Select the applicant(s) to which the incorrect information relates.

What should we fill, I have added some details that I am thinking of proving. Your valuable suggestions are needed?

Give details of the incorrect information
Answer: Other name of Sponsor(Nishant) was left blank.

Give details of the correct information
Answer: NISHANT added his surname (KUMAR) to his passport and now it is NISHANT KUMAR with added surname.

Reason why incorrect information was provided
Answer: Assuming NISHANT name is same and does not need to be considered as other name. Thinking this, we submitted application but realised that we should have mentioned it anyway as other name. Its just added information.

So, we are kindly informing Immigration Department about this.

Yes, you should send Form 1023.

Sounds right, though, for the last answer, the simple reason that you forgot should suffice.
