Passport Name Change

If you have changed your name, you may have this change reflected in a new passport free of charge, provided that:

Your name change and recent passport issuance occurred less than one year ago.

To apply for a new passport reflecting the name change, please submit:

  • Your current passport; and
  • A completed Form DS-5504; and
  • One passport photograph (we can take a photo when you arrive  to ensure it meets our size requirements; and
  • Legal documentation of your name change (e.g., original marriage certificate, divorce decree, or court order).

There is no fee charged for this service provided that your name change and recent passport issuance occurred less than one year ago. If your most recent passport was issued more than one year ago, you must apply for a regular passport renewal.
