That's misleading. If you submit a deed poll with your passport application, you'll get your passport with the new name.forbc123 wrote:As far as I know - your UK passport is printed on basis of your naturalisation certificate
I am actually looking for advice from you. My case is a bit different, my wife's current Indian passport is on her maiden name. We were planning to get her British passport in her married name, using a deed poll. Subsequently the plan was to get an Entry visa to India for all of us, and head back to India, where we immediately apply for OCI cards for all.
Now looking at your case that won't be possible from India at all, due to the name difference in her Indian and British passport? Or is there a way out?
I am just wondering if its best to keep her British passport in her maiden name too. The main reason we were considering moving it to her married name was because we wanted to move all her bank accounts, pension accounts etc in the UK to her married name, and we thought this would help with that. But it sounds like we can anyway achieve that just by using deed polls?
Any suggestions, sysnerul and other senior members?
Do you have a link for the procedure for getting this done. My real problem is I am planning to travel to India on an entry visa and then apply for OCI immediately in India, now I am not quite sure what the FRRO in India will accept for this.According to him I will receive the oci card with my new name, but will need to submit the change of name affidavit as mentioned in HCI website. I think it's better to go and get it done through consular services as they are gonna charge £17 and you will know exactly what they talking about.

Can some one throw some light on whether I should get the deedpoll signed by Oath Commissioner or UK Notary as the cost for UK Notary for change to name is very expensive compared to Oath Commissiner while applying for OCI
