Change Of Name on international passport After Marriage by Loritess: 9:07am On Jul 31, 2018
Please if I want to change my name on my international passport, do I really have to wait for 21 days after my name appears on the news paper? Please help.

Try and talk to someone in the Business, I had a related problem and I spoke with an Immigration friend and I had it resolved.

Yeah thank you, I talked to 2 people about it. 1 said I don’t need to wait for 21 days after publication, the other said I have to. I’m in Abuja. I just want to know if it’s like that in other states.

Does a married first time passport applicant have to do an official change of name to get an International Passport; or will the marriage certificate suffice?

And how does one go about doing a change to a married name? Is it an affidavit in court or something else or a combination of affidavit and something else

Thank you so much but do I have to wait for 21days after my name has been publicized in the newspaper. Or I can bring it immediately I see it on the newspaper.
E.g if the newspaper is dated 2nd August can I use it on that same day or I have to wait till 23rd of August before I can use it?

Go to their Abuja office first. For now it is done only in Abuja, so take advantage of being in Abj. Haba!

If you didn’t have a previous international passport I don’t think you need to effect anything

First person I spoke with told me 70k second person 50k then I remember my cousin told me she did 35k sometimes ago, I called her then the guy agreed 40k I just did it because the passport has expired and I’ll be needing it soon. So I think the 52k price is relative depending on your bargain power

I’m still awaiting an approval and I’ll update as it goes, but my cousin said hers took two weeks and it’s her connect I’m using, I’m hopeful that even if it will exceed two weeks it shouldn’t be more than three weeks
