No worries!

We were quite confused ourselves at the start of our visa journey. But just to avoid all the additional paperwork we decided to leave it until I got my permanent visa approved or even till after acquiring or getting the citizenship application approved before applying for the Australian passport.
Basically hyphenate the husband's surname when the time comes
Good Luck!

Kind Regards,
Becky

hello mshaz,
yes when I apply my Medicare in Centrelink they get some documents like copy of marriage contract, copy of passport ,visa copy, copy of birth certificate and copies of my husband some id details too. Doesn't have any problem in using my husband surname.I really don't know why they didn't allow you to use it in your Mdicare. I just remember on that time they just give me a small paper id then after few weeks they send the proper plastic blue yellow ID which is the INTERIM medicare card.

THIS ^^^^^ I use my husband's surname name for all govt documents and was allowed to use it for medicare despite my application still being in my maiden name because I have yet to change my passport. I advised DIBP about the use of my marriage name. I have not had any issues to date. I will update my passport later this year.

They told me the same thing. So I still have my previous married name on my passport, visa, Medicare and also doctor's office (since it needed to match Medicare).

It seemed too much hassle to change my passport from overseas simply to change my name in these systems, so I'm waiting for citizenship this year and then will change everything to my husband's surname.

The biggest hassle I have now is remembering when I book flights that I need to use the name on my passport.

hello syd,
how did you advised DIBP about using your married name?. Did you ring them or email them a letter stating that you will used your married name in all your docs?, because I didn't inform them about it..is it needed for them to inform that I used my married name in all docs that I used or they knew already about it because I'm married and I provide marriage contract on them (DIBP)?.

hello Maggie-May24,
yeah your right using to maiden name and married name sometimes so confusing to use in some sort of documents because it makes you confused too. Sometimes in booking flights in which I cant use my married name because my passport is in my maiden name. I remember when I was applying an AFP and DIBP requested me to send my AFP in my maiden name I just have to search some ID that I used in my maiden name like passport and Birth certificate so quite hard for me sometimes using maiden and married name so I will suggest to some applicant that its easy to use one name only when you apply...choose if you will use your maiden or single name to avoid confusion in your application...

hello mish,
a quick question only about the question that I supposed to ask to syd but didn't reply this is all about informing DIBP in using my married name on some of my docs is it needed to inform DIBP that I used my married name or they knew that I'm married already because I provide them marriage contract?..

No need to tell them. They will see it on the evidence provided. Also they will know you are using that name because you are married.
