Question Does a space in my lastname matter?

Hello
Reading these treads I think I got some ideas but I ask my question anyways as it really worries me.. In my passport and all other translated documents(they translate them all based on passport) the 2 parts of my lastname are written without a space(alipourfetrati) but when registering I didn't notice this so I certified as "alipour fetrati" which is the correct form in farsi but as I said translation will be based on passport
so should I use form 182 and change this? Would the space matter? How long would it take for change to happen after sending the form?
