do i need to get a new passport?

Hi everyone!


I got married on May 13, 2011. I would like to know if I need to have my passport changed so I could use my husband's last name. Currently my passport shows my maiden name, is it still valid? We will be lodging an application for spouse visa this month. I had my medical check done on 15.6.2011 and the passport i used was my current one where my maiden name appears. Please advise?

Thanks!

It is still valid as long as it is not yet expired and even if it still uses your maiden name.

I got married last August and had 9 years left on my passport , so I rang Australia house and they told me your passport had to be same name as the name your spouse lodged application so if he lodged in ure new married name then your passport has to match !! Do I have just got another passport gutted coz I only got the other last year !! Hope that helps !! X

May I please ask for an advice concerning my passport. I have my passport renewed last 2011 and on 2012, my annulment was granted. Will I have to renew my passport before lodging a Prospective Marriage Visa to my maiden name?

When you lodged your application you could have just lodged it using the same information in your previous passport so you could continue using it and not have to get new passport. You can then amend the passport upon renewal.
