Latin names and special characters

Hello we come from a Latin country so I was wondering how we should fill the name?

For example Carlos David Torres Reyes.

To my understanding

First name is: Carlos
Last name is: Torres

On the same venue: special characters like ´ ¨ and ñ?.

Thanks in advance.

Hi there,

In this case you should try to follow your passport as close as possible so the JR staff can easily verify your identity.

For example, Carlos David Torres Reyes should be:

First name: Carlos David
Last name: Torres Reyes

Special characters are fine to include provided they are used in your passport.

Hope this helps!
