So you have gotten married, changed your name, and are ready for your honeymoon abroad! But does your passport reflect your new name? If you have legally changed your name then you will need to either revise your passport or apply for another passport by renewal. See below for details.
- If your name has been legally changed through marriage or by court order, then you must check the date that your passport has been issued. If your passport was issued less than 1 year ago, you may apply for a passport name change. There is not charge for this service.
- If your name has changed for a reason other than marriage or by court order, and/or your current passport is more than one year old, then you will need to apply for a passport renewal as well as pay the renewal fees.
