XP: Dual Nationality/Passport Question
Hi all, I'm hoping you might have some experience I can draw upon. I also posted this on the Travel board, but I'd like to get as many thoughts as possible.
have dual citizenship for the US and Brazil. I recently booked a trip
to Brazil with my husband (I have to go for work, so he is tagging along
to sight-see). I just realized that I need to renew my Brazilian
passport as it expires a week before our trip (grrr..talk about bad
timing!) My US passport has my married name on it, but I never changed
my name on my Brazilian one. I am hoping they can renew it quickly if I
go to the consulate tomorrow morning, but do you think I can keep my
maiden name on there without running into issues?
The reason I
ask is because in order to change my name on my Brazil passport I need
to register my marriage (which requires a bunch of documents, one of
which I can only get in Brazil--has to be picked up in person or sent to
a Brazilian address), and then apply for a new passport.
they check if I change my plane ticket into Brazil to match a
maiden-name Brazilian Passport, and then when I come back to the US I
use my US passport with my married name? It would be so much easier if I
just needed a visa to enter the country like DH!
I'm starting to freak out a little bit.
Thanks for your help!
