Hi all,

Iam Indian working in singapore. I want to apply passport for my baby.

1. My wife's family name was not changed to mine after marriage in her passport.Does this create any problem while applying passport for my baby?



2. Currently my wife is staying with their parents in adress xxx which is different from the my address( yyy ) in passport and wife's address ( zzz ) in her passport. Now , how can i apply passport from my baby from address xxx ?

>> xxx - karnataka,india , yyy - andhrapradesh,india , zzz -
andhrapradesh,india
Please advise

xxx and zzz don't help much, you need to specify what country they are in, that makes the difference as far as ID docs go.
My feeling is your wife and baby are back n India, right?

1. Has your wife legally changed her name, but not done so for her pp?
In that case better get it done quick.
I'm not aware if this wud create a problem, I don't think it shud affect the baby's pp application. Preferably your wife shud give other ID docs if required, like voter card alongwith change-of-name proof.

2. Without the countries involved, imposs to answer.

the name issue should not be a problem. Married women can continue to use their maiden names. She need not change her name in the passport or include her name in your passport. For the baby's passport, the baby's birth certificate should be enough along with your marraige certificate.

I agree, in case she has not changed her name legally. But if she has, then the maiden name in the PP is in fact incorrect.

venkatesh,
Has she changed her name legally (afffidavit/gazette notification) or hasn't she? If not, you shud think about simply including the baby in her pp, it'll be easiest. If she cannot go to her pp issuing office, she shud send her pp and all required docs to someone reliable in the concerned city who can hand it in. Delivery address shud also be given for someone reliable.

The op asks how he can apply for the passport.

His wife and child are in India, he is not; I think she must apply. He must provide the consent letter as per #6 in his second post.

Venkatesh, using an agent may, if he is good, save your wife a lot of queueing and enquiring and queueing again. An agent sorted out issue of new passport, the original having been lost, for my wife with absolutely no fuss*, and I think she had to go to the passport office only once. It was well worth a few hundred Rs.


*and got change of name to married name, addition of my name as spouse and change of address all done at the same time. And Tatkal too: it was all sorted in about a week!

Venkatesh

Like Nick says, your wife will have to apply for a pp for your child. Again, I would take Nick's advice and secure the assistance of an agent. My eldest daughter was born in India. I am Irish and my then husband was Indian. I never took his name and there was no problem getting a pp for our daughter. We were both recorded on her b/c as her parents. That was good enough for everyone involved.

Can I just confirm that it is an Indian pp you are looking for? Even if your baby was born in Singapore, he/she is not entitled to a Singaporean pp.

HTH

Thanks a lot for your replies

@ Haze

She was born in India.

One more question -

Address in my passport : xxx,Andhra Pradesh,India
Address in my wife pp : yyy,Andhra Pradesh,India
current address where my wife is staying : zzz,Karnataka,India

While applying pp for my baby, do i need to provide them
any documents ,since my wife is not staying at the address
in my pp or her pp?

Please be aware that, although people will try to help, and speak from their own experience, this is an internet travel site, not a source of legal advice.

I'm not saying 'don't ask' --- but am saying that you might get all the answers, and be sure that they are the correct ones, if your wife visits her local passport office or an agent.

Could save you a lot of time

venkatesh, why not have the baby included in your wife's pp for now, as I suggested earlier? Does Singapore not accept this?

Passport for New Born Baby

I am a Bangladeshi national. My wife is Indian passport holder. She is expecting baby in first week of January 2011 and currently staying in Kolkata with her parents under the treatment of a reputed gynecologist there. My wife is willing to stay in India till the birth of the baby and would like to get Indian Passport for the new born.

At our this situation, when, the mother is Indian and Father is foreigner and child is born in India, would the child get Indian nationality and passport? What is the procedure for getting passport for new born and what is time involvement?

I shall indeed be grateful if someone provide me with necessary information on the above matter.
