Change Of Name Issue With The New E-passport? Info Pls by aysometin(f): 8:42pm On Jan 15, 2011
Hi Guys,

I need to change my surname on my e-passport because I am married now.
I am in the UK and checked the embassy website, I saw something like name change is only allowed on the old MRP passport. I called the embassy for more information but no one picked.
Has anyone done this before or has any information on it??
My other passport already has my new name and am due to travel to Naija, I am confused as to what name should be on the ticket if I decide to use my Nigeria e-passport like that.
Would the airline let me fly with two different names on two different passports??If I take my marriage certificate along would that be helpful?

Thanks

Hello @ Chichiange,
Thanks for your advice.
Can I get this done in Abuja in one day?? without a previous appointment.
I am also considering the option of buying a one way ticket to Nigeria with my maiden name and then buying a return with my married name from Nigeria after I change the passport.

Hello,

I have just been told British airways would let you fly with your maiden name on your Nigerian passport, all you have to show is your marriage certificate as proof.
My e-passport expires in 2012, so I'll just be patient till then before making any changes.

Many thanks for your help

Good news. Nigeria Embassy officers from London will be in Edinburgh tomorrow to take the biometric data from those who have applied for E-Passport. This will save you the cost and trouble of traveling to London. If you are interested, you must do the online application first if you have not already done so before going to Edinburgh with your details. The address in Edinburgh is Edinburgh Training & Conference Centre, 16 St Mary Street, Edinburgh. EH1 1SU. The officers will be in Edinburgh till Friday this week. Good luck and God bless. Pls share with others.

Hi everyone in the house,I am 38 years old male a UK resident and I have my Biometric Residence Permit. I then applied for a Nigerian passport and want to effect a name change.
My first name is Ayomide Olusegun Ojo ( On my Residence permit it states Ayo Olusegun Edward)Edward is my father's name and Ojo is the family name.
I would like to know how I can effect the change in Abuja. Changing it on my residence permit is easier for me in the UK,
The Nigeria house in London said they can't accept the deed poll(Document to show name change)that I should go to Abuja.
Please I would appreciate if anyone in the house can shed more light.
