☆  rectify (誤りなどを)正す


If you rectify something that is wrong, you change it so that it becomes correct or acceptable. If you are traveling, there are all sorts of things that might need to be rectified.

For example, the spelling of your name on your passport. My sister changed the spelling of her name from Gill to Jill. The British spelling is Gill, but when we moved to Australia, she changed it. When she tried to get her passport, they didn’t believe it was her, because of the J and G difference. It actually took her quite a bit of time and effort to get it rectified to J on her passport.

Have you ever had to rectify something while traveling?
