Hi Everyone

Ok, so i am trying to Report my Marriage and file for passport ammendment at the same time, and im planning to send this all through mail (i can do this personally, but its just not very feasible for me to drive to Fort Lauderdale for 10 hours at this time)

I have a green passport which will expire March 2012, i am sending the report of marriage form and application for ammendment of passport

does anyone know if the embassy will send me back the New machine readable passport?
and do you think i should fill up an E-Passport application form as well just to be sure?

Thanks much and happy saturday smile.gif

They will not be sending back a machine readable passport. That will require a visit in person so that they can take your photo, prints, and signature.

For the ePassport, it looks like you'll need to register your marriage first.


What are the requirements for married women who wish to use the surname of their spouse for the first time?

For women who were married in the United States:

In addition to requirements A to D, married women who were married in the United States and would like to use their married name for the first time must report their marriage at the Embassy of the Philippines or Philippine Consulate General that has consular jurisdiction over the place where the marriage was celebrated prior to their application for an ePassport. For further information, see requirements for Registration of Marriage.

So no matter what...it looks like you'll need to plan a trip to Miami at some point during the next 18months. The sooner the better, just in case you have to fly back to the Philippines in case of an emergency.

You can do the report of marriage and passport renewal at the same time but it does require it be done in person.

You still have almost couple years for the expiration of your passport! You can just send the report of marriage. When you get the chance to travel to Ft. Laud within that time, then you can personally renew it!

Amendments of the passport is not really necessary unless you are traveling soon. But even so, i've travelled to PI 4 times within 3yrs, without passport amendments and i had no problems....

Contact the Consulate to see if they will have any outreach stops near you. Most of the consulates do this on an occasional basis to allow those in outlying areas to avail in person services without traveling all the way to the consulate.

Keep on truckin'

May you find what you want in life,
know it when you see it and
have the good luck to get it
... and keep it!!!
