Passport Name Change Service

If you have legally changed your name due to marriage, divorce, or any other court order, then you will need to update name on passport as well.

If your passport was issued more than one year prior to your name change, then it is as simple as applying to renew your passport and including the official name change documents.

If your current passport was issued less than one year prior to your name change, then you are eligible to have your passport information changed and only pay the expediting fee.

Texas Passport Center can easily help you with passport name change as fast as 1 business day!
