Is adding spouse name mandatory for passport renewal?


(Sundar) #1

Hi,

I prefer not to add spouse name in my passport.

I was filling Government of India passport application. I selected marital status as married. But it doesn’t allow me to proceed further, from family details page unless I enter spouse first name.

Has anyone faced this issue? Any suggestions to proceed from this?

Thanks in advance!

Adding spouse name to passport is optional.

I think you can just give the name and opt to NOT print on passport.
