Change name in UK passport


New to this forum and first post so be kind. Apologies if in wrong plave etc)

I have searched the forum for this answer and whilst i found some refernces to this quetsion they did appear to be quite old (2008 ish) and thus i have decided to ask directly.

My wife and i got married and she decided to double barrel her name. She now needs to get this reflected in her UK passport, the knock on of that being an update to her work permit (not able to do so wothout first update to passport).

I have heard that a trip to the UK embassy in Bern is needed and even perhaps a translation of the marriage certificate to English.

Any recent experience of this out there?

Re: Change name in UK passport

All can be done via post. Look on the gov.uk passports page.

No point in moving from where you're at.
