Changing last name on my Philippine Passport

Sorry guys, I didn't know exactly which forum to post this on so I just chose "Off Topic" :)

I want to get my Philippine Passport amended and change my last name on it to my married last name... so my question is, do the Philippine Passports still show your "Maiden Name" in the biographic page once you get it amended to change your maiden surname to your married surname? I tried to google some Philippine Passport imagess to see some examples but they all just show Last, First, and Middle name.... For my middle name, will they just put my maiden name there??

For all of my immigration documents, I've already changed my surname (to my husband's) and just totally dropped my maiden name and kept my middle name. So now, I go by my (first name) (middle name) (married last name)...

Do you guys just suggest that I tell the Philippine Consulate that I DON'T want my maiden name to show... or???

Thanks everyone!

You will get more answers in the Philippines Regional forum. To get you started, you can renew your passport, get it amended, or get an affidavit of one and the same. All that can be done at the Philippine Consulate for the region in which you live. You also have to do a report of marriage. The name as it appears will be decided by the consulate, according to Filipino tradition. If your US ID differs in form, you may need the affidavit of one and the same, especially when boarding in the Philippines and going through Philippines customs, just to be certain of no hassles.

Mhay just renewed her passport at the DFA & it doesn't have her married name. I submitted the papers with the way she wanted her name shown. The visa will be issued in the name in the passport. It is better to renew now than when you are in the US. It is cheaper too.

My bad...I also meant to say maiden name above...

Hopefully the OP has the machine readable one...I know if you dont, you need to apply at the nearest consulate in person.

As far as dropping your maiden name completely (this is different from the name norm for filipinas), that is what you need to tell the consulate when you renew your passport.

thanks for all of the replies. I do have a machine readable one... I printed out the amendment forms and the report of marriage form along with the affidavit already so I guess from reading some of these posts, all I would have to do is submit them, and then REQUEST the consulate to completely drop my maiden name..right?

Thanks everyone!
