Is it ok to sign passport without middle name?

Question: Teen daughter didn't sign her name as it is typed (first middle last) on the passport. She omitted the middle name. Is this a problem?


Answer: While passport data pages contain full name, the owner should sign his or her name as usual. There is no problem if your daughter signed her passport with only her first and last name.
