    Default Using a Dominican passport

    My Dominican passport has a double last name in it like all Dominicans have. Just wondering if this would cause problems at the airport if I bought the ticket using only one last name.

    Which airport are you talking about? DR or other?

    I have used my Dominican passport many times checking in on a direct flight to the DR with no problems. I have never used it to actually purchase tickets. I always buy online tickets.

    How about calling the airline and asking?

    If you have another passport then take it with you

    You should be fine. When I got married 40 years ago, I just added my husband's surname to my maiden name on my passport, so I have two surnames on it [and nowhere else, all other ID is only his surname]. In 4 decades, never ever a problem, and my reservations only have husband's surname.

    If you don't follow the Spanish tradition of using your second (maternal) surname it should not appear on your documents. I just leave that space blank, even though my mother's surname is actually a not-very-common but recognisably Spanish surname.

    My wife never had a middle name so when she became a U.S. citizen I renamed her () with her previous last name as her "middle" name.

    The last time she renewed her U.S. passport, in the Dominican Republic, they took it upon themselves to put a hyphen between her middle name and her last name(Mine).

    I always buy her ticket with my last name. Have had no problem with her traveling that way.

    One word of caution, if she shows the agent at the gate her passport to look up the reservation to check in, they may try finding her reservation using the hyphenated name and will not find it.
