How (1)There’s nothing worse than getting to the airport, ready to get your boarding pass- and your passport name doesn’t match your identification.

Newly married, newly divorced  are among the most common reasons for a name change. If all your identification doesn’t match, you’re not going anywhere until it does.

A good thing to do is either change your name well in advance of your departure or wait until you get back to handle all the name changes. Otherwise, your trip might stall in the security check.

When a person gets married, divorced, or otherwise makes a name change – the driver’s license and social security card often are the first to see a change to the new moniker.

Another must-do is to update your passport. This eliminates the chance of being detained or delayed in your travels because your name on your passport does not match your other travel documents. This is especially important for newlyweds planning a trip out of the country for a honeymoon, and one or both has changed their names on their driver’s license or other identification to reflect their new status.

Updating the name on your passport is easy. The service you will need is reapplying .

You will need a copy of a document such as a certified marriage certificate that verifies the name change. Other than that difference, there are no more special requirements than applying for a renewal of your passport.
