Passport Renewal and ROM

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My wife's passport is expiring in August.  We are looking to take a trip up to DC to renew her passport in Feb.  So with that, I have 2 quick questions:

- Can we concurrently complete the Report of Marriage at the same time and have the new passport reflect in her married name?

- Will she get her current (old) passport back the same day she applies? (Currently going through AOS and I'm certain we will need that, with the visa, for any appointments)

If you guys got married in NC then you can go to the embassy in DC and do both things concurrently.

It's been reported by some that you need to complete the ROM first and then the passport, which happened to us. At the time DC was the only one that required this and not some of the other locations. But I have also heard that you can do both.

 

Also, there are outreach programs. Next one near NC is VA Beach 19 January. http://www.philippineembassy-usa.org/news/6605/589/2019-Consular-Outreach-Schedule/d,phildet/

 

If you attend in VA then you can visit Jolly Bees as it is near by and I am sure your Asawa would enjoy it.

Thanks @Greenbaum.  Unfortunately, I'm out of the country on business that week.  And I'll save my spicy chickenjoy and spaghetti with "ketchup" on my next trip to the Philippines 😁
