How do I change my name or correct an error on a U.S. Passport?

Introduction

Have you ever noticed that when you receive your U.S. passport, it says “United States of America,” but when you look at the cover of a book or magazine, it says “United States”? That’s because two different words are used to refer to the country: one spelled with an ‘a’ and one spelled with an ‘e.’ In this article, we’ll discuss how to change the name on your U.S. passport so that both documents reflect what you want them to say.

You must submit your legal name change documents to the agency that issued your U.S. passport book or card.

To change your name on a U.S. passport, you must submit your legal name change documents to the agency that issued your U.S. passport book or card. Suppose you are changing names due to marriage or divorce. In that case, you must include your marriage certificate, proof of divorce, and any other required supporting documentation (e.g., a court order changing the child’s surname).

The documents you submit will be reviewed, and if the name change is approved, your new passport will be printed with your updated name.

You must include your marriage certificate if you are changing your name due to marriage or divorce.

If you’re applying for a passport because you’ve adopted a child, including the adoption decree with your application.

If your gender has been legally changed and you would like to reflect this on your U.S. Passport, please submit a copy of the court order that authorizes such change and all other required documentation (listed below).

If you are changing names due to marriage or divorce, you must include your marriage certificate, proof of divorce, and any other required supporting documentation.

If you are changing names due to marriage or divorce, you must include your marriage certificate, proof of divorce, and any other required supporting documentation.

The following items must be included with your application:

  • Passport photo (2″x2″) – Please see the photo requirements below for more information on submitting a passport photo that meets all requirements for U.S., Canadian or Irish citizens. If applicable, please also include color photocopies of these photos as well, one copy per person in both cases.* Proof of identity such as an original birth certificate issued by a government agency within the last 15 years; signed by an authorized official (e.g., hospital administrator) and bearing an official seal.* A copy of current government-issued photo identification card (e.g., driver’s license) showing current address(es) and date(s) of issuance.* Proof that all previous U.S., Canadian or Irish passports were lost/stolen/damaged beyond repair; this may include insurance claims forms from which it can be determined that they were indeed lost/stolen/damaged beyond repair.* If applicable: A certified copy of any court decree approving name changes resulting from marriage or divorce proceedings must also be submitted with this application form; i f two people are applying together for passports under one name change request, then both applicants must submit certified copies together at a time when only one applicant has been issued their new passport.”
