I recently acquired a Dutch passport but because I applied for it from Egypt, my whole full name is in the "surname" area and the given name area is just a "-".
I asked many times the embassy and the government online but they said as long as I applied for it outside the NL, it would stay like that. The only way to have a proper last name and the rest of my name in the given name area would be by updating my passport inside the NL.
At this stage of my life I can't travel to the NL, but I was thinking of visiting nearby countries like Turkey, Italy or Greece. So my question is, can I travel to these countries with this passport? Or can't I go anywhere with it before it has a proper last name?
I read before here that many of you guys had that issue in their passport too and traveled to Australia with it fine but it was only a problem when they were travelling to the US. So I'm not sure how the situation would be like for other countries.
And would the airports be okay with my passport? I'm very afraid of buying a plane ticket and renting a room in a hotel in another country then at the last minute at the airport I find that I can't go anywhere with that passport...
What do you think?
