Change your name in your passport
If you want to change the name in your passport, you’ll need to apply for a new one. The name in your passport must be your officially registered name.
If your name has changed since your last passport was issued, you’ll have to apply for a new passport. You can apply for a passport online if your name was changed within New Zealand.
You can change the name in your new passport if your name was changed by:
- marriage or civil union
- deed poll or statutory declaration.
You only need to provide original name change documents if your name was changed outside of NZ or in some special circumstances.
