Change name, visa , citizenship ???

Hi all,

After a good rest from official paperwork from doing the PMV , 820 , 801 saga for my German wife.

The time has come to do something about changing her surname to mine and getting a new german passport with that name before she applys for citizenship next year.

Anette has just been to service NSW to update her drivers licence, next is medicare , tax, banks etc.

Should we update immiaccount about the name change now or wait till we have her new passport with the different name ?.

We have been down the same PMV to 801 visa route, and will apply for Citizenship in February 2020.

We changed the name of everything, except Immigration, until she renewed her foreign passport in the married name.

At that point we notified immigration with copy of passport.

The visa is linked to the passport, so had to stay in the passport name.

ok, digging this up again, dam covid meant the German embassy shut for a while.

Finally got the name change paperwork back from Germany so tmrw is applying for a new German passport in our married name.

Do we just go to immiaccount and upload thd new passport details ?.
Will the different name cause issues ?.

Do we get notified when its updated or do we have to keep checking vevo ?

Then onto citizenship.

Thanks
Greg
