Passport applications requiring a name declaration cannot be processed until the appropriate declaration has been submitted. It is therefore essential that you check whether or not you are required to submit a name declaration. For example, a name declaration is required if you have married since your last passport was issued and you changed your surname. A name declaration is also required if this is the first time you are applying for a passport for your child and you and your spouse do not share the same surname. Additional information can be found on our website about Naming Law.
