Arrow Brit Citizenship / Passport & Philippine Passport

Hello there!

My wife has just received her British Citizenship Invitation letter, which is great !!!

Once she has British Citizenship, my she wants to apply for a British passport.

Currently her Philippine passport is in her single / maiden name and I have read that in order to apply for a British passport, the Philippine passport has to show her married name.

I have a couple of questions:

1) Has anyone recently applied to the Philippine embassy/consulate in London to have a Philippine passport issued in the wife's new married name………. and if so how long was the process??


Also, after doing a search I found this post from another forum….

""I applied for my first british passport 3 weeks ago and received a letter that i cant be issued a passport because my Philippine passport is on a different name, which was still on my single name, to the one i am applying for now, which im applying it to be on my married name.

I was initially given 2 options, (A) apply for new Phil passport under my married name to which Phil. Embassy said not an option since im already a brit citizen……. or (B) get my passport cancelled by the Phil embassy and letter stating that passport is cancelled and my citizenship is renounced.

I was told by the case worker from Passport Office that (B) is the only option""

2) With regard to the above statement, has anyone applied for a British Passport by using the (B) option mentioned above?

Any replies would be most appreciated!!
