I’m in the process of changing my name on my passport. I got to the point in the applcation where I have to fill out the “ICE” info and I’m not sure who to list. When we originally applied (for the first time) before our Honeymoon, both Darling Husband and I listed our mothers as our “ICE” since we’d be traveling together but I’m curious as to who everyone else listed. I’m changing this now because my friends and I going to Montreal in a few months and my passport is still in my maiden name. In this instance it would make sence to list Darling Husband as my “ICE” but going forward, I imagine we’ll do the majority of our traveling together. In the event there were an emergency, it doesn’t make much sense to have your emergency contact be the person who will more than likely be with you. Then again, if I were traveling solo and something happened, I’d probably want my husband to be contacted first. I’m sure it’s a stupid thing to think so much about but I’m just curious.
Who is listed as your passport “ICE”?

My parents because most likely I am going to be traveling with my SO so he wont be much help if we both go down in a plane together lol.

I listed my mom, since most likely I would be traveling with Darling Husband.

I always list my mom simply because she’s way easier to get a hold of than Fiance. He rarely answers his phone.
Can you change the contact person at some point or have 2 people listed?

Mine is my mom. In your case, I would do your mom as well…like you said, most of the traveling will be with Darling Husband so she makes more sense.

I’ve got my mom listed first, because I’m much more likely to travel with Mr.ND than her, and she’d be able to reach him ASAP.

That’s a tough question for me. I would list my grandmother, but she’s too sick. I know you’re thinking “so..?”, but if something were to happen to me – there wouldn’t be much she could do. I don’t believe my mother has a right to know anything about me. So, I guess it would have to be FI’s mom. I don’t really have anyone else.

In this kind of situation it’s always smart to list someone that does not live in the same household as you. The majority of the time you will be traveling with your husband anyway.

It depends on who I’m travelling with. I believe this is why they instruct you to write that info in pencil. 🙂
ETA: Then again I still have the old style passport until next month. It may not have that option anymore.

@aleeshabobeesha: Yea, the info listed in the book is whoever is written in but I’m a “worst case scenerio” thinker and I’m imagining losing my passport and having an emergency in another country. Then having to go through the consulate where I figure they’d contact the person listed in their system. I know, I’m crazy. lol But these are the things I think of.
@everyone. Yep, pretty much what I was thinking. I listed my mom. Now lets just hope that if anything were to happen she’d actually answer her phone.

Both Darling Husband and I’s emergency contact is my mom. We’re most likely to travel together, so it doesn’t make sense in most situations for it to be him. They’re also the ones that I mailed photocopies to for when we travel in case we lose our passport. I keep one at my house, one in our suitcase and one at my parent’s place. I make lost passport files at work, and know what a headache it is for people who don’t know their serial #.
Also, I would think the US has something similar, but we have a “Canadians travelling abroad” register, where you can report what countries you’ll be in on what particular days, and then specify an additional emergency contact that’s NOT with you for that specific trip only. It’s how they make operation plans for who needs to be emergency evacuated, or is still missing etc in case of a major disaster.

Mine would probably be my mom, just as I would expect Fiance would also list his mom. For work and things of that nature, I have Fiance listed, but if either of us would be traveling, chances are we would be doing so together. Besides, his mom has my number and my mom has his number, so we’d all be able to get ahold of one another fairly easily if need be!
ETA: I voted “significant other” without reading your post or really thinking about the question!

I listed my Mom as well, because it says to list those who you don’t travel with.
I travel with Fiance more than my Mom.
