Applying for an Australian passport

Recommended Posts

Hi there - after becoming an Australian Citizen I am trying to apply for an Australian passport on-line.  One of the questions asked is if I have changed my name since birth, which I have by marriage, but the problem is they want proof and they say they don't accept foreign documents.  How do I proceed?

What did you provide for your visa? They do accept foreign documents but only if there is an English translation. I sent my UK certificates.You must have provided birth and marriage certificates for your visa grant surely, just use the same ones.
