FNU in Visa and Blank Surname in Passport

Hello Forum,

I’m trying to add a surname to my Indian passport and proceed to make the necessary changes in the remaining documents. Has anyone recently gone through this process? Looking for some guidance as the process seems to have changed a little and the Consulate of India in Atlanta is not helpful at all.

To change the surname in the passport, you need to apply for a “reissue” of the passport and receive the change indicated in the personal details. To view the full list of documents to be submitted with the application form, click the “Document Advisor” link on the home page.
