I’ve recently changed my name, do I need to change my passport?

Does the destination country require a visa?

No- If you’re traveling to a country that does not require a visa, you will not need to change the name on your passport. You will, however, need to have your reservation in the name that is listed on your passport, even if that’s not the name you go by now.

Yes- If you will need a visa to travel to your destination, it is safer to go ahead and apply for a new passport. If you have questions, please contact our recommended visa and passport processing company, CIBT.
