    New passport name change without enrolled deed poll 15th Jan 20 at 8:50 PM
    Hey,

    I changed my surname after marriage (so did my wife) and Iím in the process of renewing my passport.

    I got an application form from the local Post Office with a guidance book and with regards to proof of a name change, the following are mentioned:

    Enrolled deed poll
    Change of name deed signed in both your old and new names

    I have not enrolled my deed poll. Is the second bit of evidence a deed poll that has not been enrolled?

    Thanks.

    How have you changed your name?

    Hyphen yours and your wife's?
    -- use your marriage certificate

    Or just picked a new one?

    Deed poll. I used an online service. But, the deed polls have not been enrolled. However, the website does say that it will be accepted to get a new passport.

    Does “change of deed name signed in both your old and new names” refer to a deed poll that has not been enrolled? It appears so because the deed poll mentions my former new and my current name.
