Hello,

I received my citizenship certificate last week and today I applied for a legal name change.

My question is, after I receive the name change approval, can I apply for a passport right the way or do I need to get a new citizenship certificate with the new name to include it in the passport application.

p.s. I'm planning to apply for a new certificate with the new name later, but I thought to move faster with the passport, I may apply with the current certificate and include the approved name change, so my passport would be with the new name.

Thank you!
