I have dual US citizen (1998) and UK citizen by birth. My UK passport renewal has been turned down because of a name difference on the two passports. The US passport uses middle Initial whereas the UK passport uses full name. How do I proceed. I have requested a new US passport with full name. The British passport was renewed at least twice with no problem in the past.
JA: What steps have you taken? Have you filed any paperwork with the UK government? What country do you live in? What is your citizenship?

Hi

Further your question, you will need to do a statutory declaration to say you are the same person and state both names that you have used. You can then send that with your current application for renewal of a British Passport.

I suggest that you speak to a local solicitor who could help you draft the same.

Kind regards
