I would fix that ASAP. It might be a problem if they find out that there's an error because it could make you look careless or like you're trying to hide something.

With the passport and other documents how did the error originate?

Hey there! I'd encourage you to try and get the misspelling corrected sooner than later, especially if you plan on applying for a visa as this process is quite meticulous and name spelling is important. Rectifying the spelling can help prevent delays in the lung run.

Hope this helps!
