I am confused... Not getting answer from the Philippine Embassy in Bern.
(FYI: Amendment of Philippine Passport to reflect married name still in process, nearing a month long now):-(
And lost opportunities to book cheap domestic flights while awaiting to get back my passport...Sigh...
CONFUSED ABOUT: WHAT NAME TO USE IN BOOKING THE FLIGHTS, SINGLE NAME OR THE MARRIED NAME?
The amendment to reflect the married name is only stamped at page 3 of the passport while the single name appears at page 2. (The Wohnungkontrol Officer said that it is best to book the flights under the single name because the B Permit is named after the single name, based as appeared in the passport while the married name is reflected at the back of the B Permit ID.
I just wanna avoid any inconvenience at the Immigration during the travel days.
ANYONE HAS THE ANSWER PLEASE???
Note:Most of what I read so far they simply reported the marriage but never applied for amendment of passport to reflect the married name and booked their flights using the single name. (There is just not much time to renew plus the fact that my current Phillippine passport is not expiring until year 2018) In my case, passport is amended. So again the question goes: Single or the Married Name? My cousin had an experinece being held longer by Immigration Officer in Spain because she used her married name to book the flights. The Immigration Officer didn't understand that the amendment reflected her married name and confused it with her single name in her passport.)
