Change of Name

An application for a legal change of name cannot be submitted along with a passport application. An application for a name change must first be submitted to, and be approved by, the Swedish Tax Agency (Skatteverket) before it is possible to apply for a new passport.

In order to legally change your name, you must complete and submit the correct name change registration form.  Read and follow the directions on teh Tax Agency's website carefully!

If married, submit a notarized copy of your marriage certificate.  Note that your spouse must co-sign the application. Also include a copy of your spouse's photo ID, e.g. passport.

Mail the application to the address listed on the form.
