name change/passport

Hello,
Can anyone help me?My friend who is recently divorced may join me on a trip to SE Asia in a couple of weeks. When she got divorced she changed her name back to her maiden name.However,she hasn't gotten around to changing everything including her passport.
If she gets a ticket issued in her married name,which at this time would match her name on her passport, would she have anything to worry about going through security/immigration?
If there's any doubt,then she will try to quickly change her name on her passport,but time is short.
Thanks for any responses!

The name on the ticket has to match the name on the id, in this case the passport.

So, there won't be any problems.

I agree with above. But I am wondering what name is on her credit cards, other ID, etc. Will she have a problem with anything else requiring ID - such as name on checks or credit card not matching passport? I have no idea what type of ID is required for check-in at SE Asia hotels other than credit card. If they ask for a passport and there is not a match, will there be a problem? I do not know, but it is something to consider. As a married woman who briefly tried using one name professionally and a married name socially, it can get very difficult having 2 names.

rockland, if your friend has a US Passport the government recently changed the rules regarding name changes on US Passports. They no longer amend the passport, you have to have them issue a new passport for the correct name.

If she will be using credit cards abroad, the only valid form of valid identification is the passport. To purchase an airline ticket and board the plane, the ticket and the name on the passport have to match.

rockland, for the exact legal information from the US Government, again assuming your friend holds a US Passport, she should go to: http://www.travel.state.gov/passport...cting_2654html

This will give her the US government requirements. Much better than getting info from a travel board. I hope everything works out for this trip.
