Passport question
« on: February 24, 2024, 11:20:18 PM »
Does anyone know if flying from Newark to Bahamas and wife ticket booked under her maiden name which is consistent with her license but not her passport which is under married name, do we need to rebook or can show marriage certificate (from 13 years ago)?

You can always show a marriage certificate.

Appreciate quick response as our flight is in a few hours. You're sure in this scenario a 13 year old marriage certificate will suffice? Like they won't wonder why we booked tickets under maiden name when passport is 5 years old and shows married name?

No, you should be good. Just give some time as some tsa agents arenít well trained/versed could a few extra minutes.
