Default Husband’s Passport – Should it be updated with Marital Status?

Husband’s Passport – Should it be updated with Marital Status?

Hi Friends – Tried a lot of goggling and finally could not get anything decisive.

I have a passport in my name which was issued before marriage. Post marriage my passport still has old marital status SINGLE.

My question is it obligatory for me to get the marital status updated in my passport ? or is holding of marriage registration certificate sufficient without getting my passport updated?

Pls advise with your real experience.

Thanks a Lot….!!!

In my experience, when time comes for you to extend your passport, that time you can have the marital status and spouse name entered into the passport by presenting Marriage Certificate. Before then it is not mandatory.

Cool... I just wanted to make sure that i dont get into any troubles and do not violate laws. I would really stay as much as as possible with passport govt dept - too much admin hassles.

Default based on my experience

It's better for you to change your passport, so that it would not conflict with other document. Let us say your income tax. You cannot claim if any deduction if other papers is single. You should declare there that you are married.

And other things is that, that you should think of your children. What happen to you, so what then their life. If remain single....are you be called a father to them. In fact your denying secretly to them. if they will know that you still single...how does it feel to them.

And lastly, why you should remain single, are you ashame of your wife. You're not proud of them. Think of the future of your kid...what if they are on your shoes, your are the child and they are your father.

Yes, this is not mandatory but think of them...and to make it sure no hassle of your papers. One document is married and other document is single. Sounds confusing.

Not necessarily if you plan to go with your last name unmodified.

There are several examples where a spouse goes with her father name as last name for a long time till GC approval including mine. No issues.

When you renew your passport, your spouse name can be added.
