Australian Citizenship by Descent Different Name

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

Not sure if this is the right forum for this question, apologies if it's not. My (I'm the Australian citizen) daughter was born in the US and is 6 months old now. I am wanting to apply for her Australian citizenship by descent, and am looking at the requirements now.

 

I changed my name to my married name in the US (as far as I know, this had no effect on my name in Australia). My question is, if I apply for her citizenship with my married name on her birth certificate, but my name in Australia is still my maiden name, will this cause issues? Any advice would be much appreciated.

 

Thank you!

Sounds like you have not updated your Passport.
