Yes, I have added it last year. You need to provide the marriage certificate as the proof. Otherwise, they can't add spouse name in the passport. It is mentioned in the document checklist as well.

Hi spavance,
I am also applying for addition of my wife name in my passport.But in marriage certificate it contains her maiden name and in her passport my surname is there. Do I need to change the name in marriage certificate also before applying.
Thank you

My friend recently got his wife's name added. He said they had not asked for any document, but he sent a self attested copy of his marriage certificate. He got back his passport (New York consulate) with name added in 7 working days

I need to add my spouse name in my passport and have validity until 2020 December.

1) Can i apply for addition of Spouse name even if the validity is more than 1 year
2) Under 'Re-issue of Passport' should i choose as "Passport is going to Expire", though validity is more than 1 year
3) Will they re-issue passport with validity of 10years or until Dec 2020 (Current Validity)
4) How long generally it takes at NYC Indian Consulate to get the passport back

Please let me know if any ideas on above points
