I want to add my middle name to my passport
by: Anonymous

Question: I need to add my middle name to my passport. I guess I accidentally forgot to enter it when filling out my application. What form do I fill out to add my middle name. Please note, I did not change my middle name and therefore do not have any name change documents. I accidentally forgot to include it on my application. I want my passport to match all my other documents. Thanks!

Answer: The best way to do what you need is to submit a new passport application. This way, you can simply enter your names the way you need them to appear in the passport. You need to use Form DS-11 for this.

Middle name

Question: My husband is a Colombian and he’s traveling to Colombia. His Colombian passport has his middle name but his U.S. passport does not. What could happen when he comes back to the USA?

Answer: Nothing should happen. As a U.S. citizen, he needs to use his U.S. passport to exit and re-enter the United States. As long as his tickets are booked in the name that appears in his U.S. passport, he should not have issues.

Middle name misspelt on BC
by: Bisi

Question: I just got my baby's birth certificate yesterday and didn't notice until I got home that her middle name was misspelt. We have an appointment at the passport office tomorrow and we are due to travel in two weeks. We still have to apply for a visa so we do not have time to do a change of name at the moment. Will it be a problem if I fill out the correct spelling of the middle name on the passport form.

Answer: Small differences in spelling are usually allowed. Please call 1-866-487-2778 to speak with a customer service representative or discuss the issue with the Passport Agent at your appointment.
