Report of Marriage and Renewal of Passport Using Married Name

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

I'm just about to report our marriage to the Philippine Consulate in Chicago and also I would like to renew my passport using my married name.

My questions are:

1. Do I have to go to the Philippine Consulate to apply / submit a report of marriage or can I just mail the requirement to them?

2. Completing the application for the renewal of passport, should I fill out the application using my married name or still use my maiden name? My social security and state ID shows my married name.

3. Can I apply for the report of marriage at the same time as I'm renewing my passport?

Thank you all and God bless!

Here is what is on the website for the Chicago Consulate for the Philippines. http://www.chicagopcg.dfa.gov.ph/index.php/list-of-services/consular-services

PERSONAL APPEARANCE IS REQUIRED. All applicants, whether for the renewal of a passport, or those applying for the first time must appear personally at the Consulate General for data verification, picture taking, thumb mark/finger-printing and signing of the application form. APPLICATION BY MAIL WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED.

From this point forward if you are going to use your married name then all new documents should contain your new married name unless it specifies your maiden name.

I did not find where you could not do a ROM and renew your passport at the same time. BUT, you might call ahead to determine what their policy is. My experience was that we had to do the ROM before we could renew the passport for the Wash. DC Consulate, BUT those who used the Los Angeles Consulate are allowed to do both at the same time.

All consulates require you to do passports in person. No leeway there.

Report of marriage can be done by mail.

Passport renewal must be done in person.

Yes you can do both at the same time. We did both during a consulate outreach event, which may be an option for you as well

Thank you so much, Greenbaum and Hank. I'm going to have both done tomorrow and I'm hoping I don't have to wait long for my passport.

Have all the requirements with me and hoping we'll get through the process with no problems.

Another question, do you know somebody who travelled back to the Philippines with their passport name showing their maiden name even though they have been married? What documents did they have to show?

I am married and using my husband's last name. Can I use my passport (with maiden name) even though my ID's would show my married name and just show a marriage certificate?
