    My name is Mansi. I have no last name since birth. On my passport and all documents, It is just my single name as Mansi. Now, I got married last month. I am applying for my PR application though spousal sponsorship by my husband. Is it mandatory to have my husband’s last name? Do I have to change name on my passport for spousal sponsorship application?

    No. It is not mandatory to change or add spouse name on Indian passport while applying for spousal sponsorship application. It is totally fine if you have single name on your passport. You can provide IRCC with alternative documents to prove your marital relationship. You can submit:

    Letters, printed text messages, emails, social media conversations, other documents proof of contact

    Proof of visits to each other, airline tickets, passport pages, boarding pass

    Proof of joint property, bank account, Joint utility accounts, life insurance, vehicle insurance

    Copies of government issued documents showing same residential information

    Other jointly held accounts such as phone bills, credit card statements, tax forms etc.

    For further information read checklist IMM 5533 on IRCC website.
