by Laura
(New Jersey)

Question: I have a passport from the Dominican Republic. I got married 7 months ago and I got my husband's last name. My passport is not expired yet but all my IDs have my new name. Do I have to change my passport to travel?


Answer: Passports issued to U.S. citizens are required to match their ID. Since your passport is from the Dominican Republic, you need to check the requirements for citizens of that country.
