Female passport applicants who acquired their passports while they were still single have the option to retain their maiden last names in their passports even after they have gotten married.  Should they choose to adopt their husband’s last name (when they renew their passports where they are using their maiden last name), they will be required to present additional documents upon passport renewal.  The same applies when the female applicant, who uses her husband’s last name in her passport, would like to revert to her maiden last name after her marriage has been dissolved.  A female applicant who uses her husband’s last name in her passport could not revert to her maiden last name without the necessary documents that will prove has marriage has been annulled or that she has sought a divorce.

Apart from the required documents and IDs, a female applicant needs to execute the following documents in order to change her married last name to her maiden last name in her passport:

  • Applicant must submit an original copy of the annotated PSA Marriage Certificate (MC) or Report of Marriage (ROM) stating that the marriage has been dissolved; or
  • Alternatively, if annotated MC or ROM from PSA is not yet available, the applicant must submit a Certified True Copy of the Court Order dissolving the marriage and a Certificate of Finality from the court.

If the female applicant is transitioning from being single to married, she need only to include a copy of her PSA marriage certificate in the documents she will submit for her passport application or renewal.

When my mom requested for a copy of her PSA birth certificate a few years back, we got a Negative Report instead.  This means that she does not have a birth certificate reported to the PSA.  When we sought the assistance of the LCR in Cabanatuan (where she was born), we were advised that her birth certificate was among those that were destroyed during a fire at the municipal hall in the ‘90s.  They do not have any back-up files.

How does a person who does not have a birth certificate, apply for a passport?  Read this.

  • If the applicant was born AFTER 1950:
    • He or she must file for late registration with the Local Civil Registrar (LCR) or Consular Office with jurisdiction over the place where he or she was born.
    • Upon release, he or she must submit the original copy of the PSA authenticated late registered Birth Certificate with the requisite supporting documents and IDs that pre-date the late registration.
  • If the applicant was born ON or BEFORE 1950:
    • He or she must submit original copies of his PSA authenticated certificate of No Birth Record and Affidavit of Two Disinterested Persons attesting to his or her identity.

The above requirements (based on the year when the applicant was born) shall be included to the rest of the documents and IDs required by the DFA for first-time adult passport applicants. If you missed our blog on the updated requirements for new passport applications, just click here.

See you again tomorrow for our next feature article on passport requirements for individuals with unique cases in their birth certificates.
