Indonesian Passport - spouse added to endorsement page

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello, my wife and I recently received our NOA1. We're prepping for the next steps. Right now we are researching her options for name changes on various documents. She has found some details regarding the endorsement page within her passport (page four in an IDN passport). She says that if she goes to the immigration office in Jakarta that she can get my name added to the page to show that she is married to me. What exactly does this entail? Is it a stamp or written? Is there some kind of notarization or something official to show that it was done by someone at the immigration office? And most importantly, is it sufficient at the port of entry to make it into the US? Thank you for any help.

I am unsure of your question:

- Are you asking if showing that you two are married, via her official Indonesian passport, will get her into the USA?  If so no, she will need to complete the visa process first.

- Are you asking if adding your name to her passport, rather than officially changing her name and getting a new passport, is enough to convince the CO you are married and give her a visa?  If so, neither is needed- a spouse need not change their name.

We're aware that she needs to go through the visa process. In my first sentence I stated that we already received our NOA1. My questions were in reference to when she is approved and flies to the US and attempts to enter, approval in-hand.

So, after her visa is approved, if she flies to the US and attempts to enter with paper work that has her new last name and a passport with her maiden name, it won't be a problem? The CBP will be ok with mis-matching names?

These questions have been answered. She went to the immigration office today in Jakarta. They wrote her full name, containing her new last name (AKA my last name), on page four of her passport. No stamp. It is still her original passport.
