Travelling to UAE? You now need ‘two’ names on your passport. Here’s what has changed, and why | Explained News,The Indian Express

However, a passenger whose passport has both first and second names written in either the first name column or the second name column will be admissible, since this will be considered a clerical error. Here are the details.

Any passport holder with a single-word name — either in the ‘given name’ or ‘surname’ column of their passport — will be considered as an ‘inadmissible passenger’ (INAD) and will not be granted entry into the country by immigration officers.

For example, a traveller can no longer enter a single name, such as ‘Arun’, in either the ‘given name’ or ‘surname’ columns of his passport. It will be deemed invalid.

A name such as ‘Arun Kumar’, however, will be acceptable. ‘Arun Kumar’ may be entered as the given name, as the surname, or with ‘Arun’ as the given name and ‘Kumar’ as the surname. These formats will be accepted.

According to a report by Khaleej Times, several Indian citizens with only one name on their passports have already been barred from flying out of the country.

However, a passenger whose passport has both first and second names written in either the first name column or the second name column will be admissible, since this will be considered a clerical error.
