    There might be no issue if you've changed your pp first before applying for your son's pp.

    That's what I was thinking when they require these documents. I only got my renewed passport so too late to change it to my married name. We didn't expect we will be having problems applying for my daughter's passport as we were given reassurance from friends and post office staff that our application is straightforward--not. We submitted the letter that they wanted, so fingers crossed her passport will be here soon.

    Lol sorry. Thought it was a son :frust:

    Better change your surname in your pp, will make other things easier.

    I wish I could but knowing how long will take for Philippine passport to arrive, I might end up not having one until our holiday in September.

    Plus if I do change my passport name, I will have to update my BRP. Another time to wait for the card.

    I will, however, have it changed after our holiday. ;)

    I saw in Phil Emb London fb page, people who applied for pp (10-yr validity) Jan this year were able to get their pp Feb. So it's only 1 month.

    That's good to know. I'd still want to wait, thank you. We still don't know when we will be having our passports back as it is still in Liverpool passport office (for my daughter's passport application).

    Finally received my daughter's first British passport couple of days ago. It took us total of 7 weeks since we submitted our application. Guess it would only take 2 weeks if we have known we needed the Philippine Statistics Authority document. We stayed at home after receiving a text on the weekend from DX delivery that her passport and other documents arrive this week. They only dropped them in the post ( We were at home but fell asleep in the sofa :p) and turned out, I didn't need to sign for it. It doesn't matter now, we have it! Have had to re-book my appointment at Spain visa application centre though. :cool:
