A passport is an important document for any individual. It is the documentary evidence issued by the government of a particular country which certifies the nationality of the passport holder. It is the most important document which is required for traveling especially across the borders of the country issuing the passport. This passport is the sole identity certificate of the individual holder during any international travel. However, many times, the individual passport holder might require changing their names, especially for married women who would like to change their surnames.
Passport of an individual is the most important identity proof. Name becomes the most important component of the identity proof. However, there are situations when one needs to change the name in the passport such as when a woman gets married or divorced. In such a situation, the individual passport holder merely needs to apply for a “Re-issue” of passport. The process of changing the name would be the same as in case of applying for a re-issuance of a passport with the specified changes mentioned in the prescribed format. The form for re-issue of passport needs to be duly filled in with the appropriate details along with the prescribed and requisite documents as mentioned under the link for “Documents Required” on the home page of the passport issuing department of the Government of India.
Usually, married woman faces this situation of changing their surnames in their respective passports from their maiden name to their married surnames post their marriages. Though there are other reasons for changing the surname as well, however in such situations a marriage certificate is certainly not required. The following steps need to be taken in order to change the surname in the passport.
The application for re-issue of passport with the changed name or surname needs to be supported with the requisite documentary proof and evidence. Such proof/evidence includes:
Such change in name and surname in the passport of Indian Citizens can be done in USA but in such a case, the individual applicant needs to take the help of Indian embassy in USA. Both the old passport along with the filled in form, requisite documents (as mentioned above), requisite fees, and a valid court order suggesting the change in name needs to send to the Indian Embassy in USA. The individual then needs to follow the stipulated steps as prescribed by the embassy officials.
