My brother and his wife have got their permanent residency but the problem is that the visa has been issued in the wife's maiden name as they have recently got married. How do we now get this changed on the visa grant letter as she wants to change her last name to her married name now.

Thanks in advance

As per my knowledge it'd better if they were to change the name in Australia after landing there and for this statutory declaration would be required and they need to update DIAC regarding this.

Thanks.

Why is that a problem?

There are other things to worry... packing... finding a job... finding accomodation...
