Just wanted to let you know that My marriage certificate is issued by WAKF board

First of all, answer for Query no 8 is: Marriage certificate does not carry the maiden name and name after marriage together for wife.

It seems you have not submitted sworn "Affidavit for Lady applicant for change of name after Marriage (Annexure "D")".

If you have already done so, please seek interview with APO at the PSK and explain the issue.

Urgent Query on fresh passport....

Originally posted by: Deepak Munjal View Post

Hi,

I have one query... its is related to a fresh passport which I need to apply for my sister.
She born after 1989 and has Birth Certificate, Address proof and identity certificate etc. The only thing is she has only first name mentioned in all the docs including Birth certificate, identity etc. But I want to apply for a fresh passport for her with full name i.e First name + Last name. What are the extra requirements(docs etc).

Thanks..


Can anyone please have a look to this query.. Thanks in advance.

There should not be any issue if the father's surname is present in these documents.

You meant there is no other doc required even though her all docs reflect only her first name but father full name is present in her docs... !

I did provide the affidavit "annexure D" and despite the APO instruction to process it, the people sitting on counter B and C are not accepting it, I was really puzzled to see this.

I'm planning to get my wife name added in the Marriage certificate in the following manner hope this should be ok

Wife name, my family name (maiden name:wife name, her maiden surname)

You can just put in the name you want to carry on.. For eg.. Maiden name.. XX YYY. After marriage your surname ZZZ.. You can keep it as XX ZZZ in the marriage certificate.. Need not keep the maiden surname in it as YYY if you dont want/ are not planning to use it as such..

A person is free to use his/her name the way he/she wished to use. Only thing which is required: supporting document should be present to support the claim.

One should be careful while filling the Application Form.

The passport number will be different as you will be getting a new passport.

hello All - need your advise as I'm in a tough situation.

My name : Nitin Chawla (on my passport issued from Mumbai and on my marriage certificate)
My wife's name : Aarohi Trehan (on her passport issued from Delhi and on her marriage certificate)

I got my passport issued in 2012 from Mumbai and had to endorse my wife's name in my passport. PSK misguided me by saying that my wife's name should be changed to husband's family name and they changed it to Aarohi Nitin Chawla (on my passport).

Now my wife's passport has expired and has to be reissued. I'm travelling outside India and I want her to take along as dependent. My questions :

1. Is it mandatory for my wife to endorse my name in her passport ?
2. My wife does not want to change her name. Can she retain her name on passport even though her name has been changed on my passport ?
3. Will it pose any problem in her visa application as dependent ?
4. What should I do now - should I change her name in her passport to reflect same as on my passport or should I change her name on my passport ?

Please advise.

It's not mandatory
2. My wife does not want to change her name. Can she retain her name on passport even though her name has been changed on my passport ?
Yes she can retain her original name as the original carries it.
3. Will it pose any problem in her visa application as dependent ?
No. it won't create any problem.
4. What should I do now - should I change her name in her passport to reflect same as on my passport or should I change her name on my passport ?

You need not change her name on your passport. It should not create any problem.

Registration of marriage is always a positive move, which will eventually help while traveling.

You should apply for re-issue of passport with a request in change of personal particulars.

You will have to check your marital status as Married and include your wife's name (as you want) in the relevant column to get it included in the passport. Providing any documentary proof of marriage is fully optional.
