Name

Changing your name
You can apply to change your name if:
- you’re 18 or over, and
- you were born here, you're a Vanuatu citizen, or you’re entitled to live here indefinitely.

You don’t usually need to apply for a name change if you’ve taken your partner’s surname after marriage or a civil union, or if you want to use your birth surname (maiden name) again after a divorce.

We will help you fill out the appropriate forms and get your national ID's reissued following the name change.
