Canadian Passport Name Change

If your surname (last name) has changed following a relationship status change, such as marriage or divorce or you legally change your first name or last name, you need this to be reflected on your passport.

This is essential to avoid awkward and unnecessary complications when travelling. To change your name on your passport you must apply for a new passport and pay the applicable fees – even if your current passport is still valid.

You will need to include all the required documents for a new adult general application, marriage certificate or divorce decree and pay the full fee.

Let our readily available passport experts ensure that your Canadian passport renewal application is done effectively to avoid rejection, delays, hassles, and headaches. We’re here to help!
