To change the name on a passport, the applicant must provide original name change documentation such as a marriage certificate or divorce decree. These types of documents are verified by the US State Department and then a new passport is issued with the name change. When submitting a US passport application name change, note that the original passport with the previous name will be cancelled. Any valid visas, with some exceptions, may no longer be valid. This is a downside to processing a passport name change application.
(if the below criteria are not met, please select a different passport service above)
Applicant must submit their current passport. Current passport will be returned marked "Cancelled" by the US State Department along with new passport reflecting name change.
Applicant must submit two (2) identical, color, passport style photographs. These may be obtained at many post offices, Kinkos, Mailboxes Etc or similar locations.
Applicant must submit original or certified copy of the marriage certificate (not a license) or a court decree ordering a name change or an adoption. The document must show the official seal of the issuing authority. All official documents will be returned.
Applicant must submit a computer-generated itinerary from a travel agency or online booking tool (such as an e-confirmation) showing departure from the U.S.
If traveling on business and no itinerary is available, a letter on company letterhead indicating dates and purpose of travel MAY suffice. If applicant does not possess proper itinerary, please contact us for options.
