Can you get the Bangladeshi consular officials to update your passport with an amendment/endorsement about your full name or even issue a new passport with your name as it appears on your US permanent residency card? [Bangladeshi consular officials do it for women based on marriage rather easily; but for you as a male, I donít know if they would be as amenable to doing so since it wouldnít be a maiden name-related change.] If you can get the Bangladeshi consular officials to do that, that will remedy most any potential problems for such situation and be a longer lasting solution.

If you cannot get an amended passport or new passport from Bangladeshi consular officials with the initials spelled out instead with those two first names in full and get it done in a timely manner, you should still be ok with the docs in hand if all other biodata elements across the documents are an exact match; but there is no guarantee that the airline or a non-US border control official wonít make an issue of it.

As of March 7, 2018, Bangladesh stopped allowing even women to update their names on Bangladeshi passportsí biodata pages even when trying to match the names as indicated on marriage certificates or other government certified documents.

Endorsement/Amendments on the passport noting other/full names used arenít subject to the same restriction. But your passportsí machine-readable zone and the name field data on that biodata page are going to remain as is even if the consular officials add an amendment/endorsement to a passport nothing other names used.
