I have been thinking what makes it 'easier' to have your name the same as your spouse's in your passport. Isn't marriage certificate sufficient anymore? Reason I am asking, I just renewed my Ph passport last year, wasn't allowed to change into married name in the embassy as documents were incomplete (PSA), and it wouldn't be cost-effective if I have it changed straight away. I am due to apply my ILR early 2020. Will anyone advice me to have it changed before then or wait until I apply for British passport? Thanks in advance!
