          Aap ka moaamla zara pecheeda hay. Iss main CNIC, passport, visa, aqaama waghera jesi bohot si cheezain shaamil ho gai hain. Hamari maaloomat sirf CNIC waghera tak hay lekin Online aap father ka naam change nahi karwa saktay. Albatta ho sakay tau aap Pakistan Embassy yaa Consulate say tafseeli maloomat lay saktay hain. Warna behtar hoga aap Pakistan aakar urgent fees adaa kar kay CNIC aur Passport waghera kay kaam karwa lain.

    2. I want to add last name of my husband on cnic.
      His name is comprised on three words abdul ahad khan, my computerised nikah nama consists of his first and middle name Abdul Ahad, not last name. My CNIC also has first two words as his name, last name (khan) is not included. He is afghan national and presently in America. What documents are required to add his last name on my CNIC under the title of husband name? I need to change urgently to apply for visa.

      1. Mrs.Ahad,

        It is more suitable if you please contact a NADRA Centre for this purpose. Normally, they ask for some basic documents which could explain the exact identity of a person. As far as we know they can demand some of the following documents:-

        1) Your original CNIC
        2) Your original manual and computerised Nikah-Namas
        3) Photocopy of your husband’s Pakistani (or American) Passport

        In this case, there are many aspects (national and international). When you will contact NADRA, they will let you know the exact documents to be submitted. For NADRA, it will not be a difficult task to add the last part of your husband’s name i.e. “Khan” on your CNIC, InshaAllah.

        After submission of required documents to NADRA, you can get CNIC on an urgent basis. Following is the fee structure:-

        Normal : Rs.400 (delivery in 30 Days)
        Urgent : Rs.1150 (delivery in 15 Days)
        Executive : Rs.2150 (delivery in 07 Days)

  4. Dear Sir,

    I have applied online to change my marital status and my permanent and present address. I have paid the urgent fee online but when I try to change my address, I couldn’t. Later, I have found out that I can not change the my permanent and present address online, I have to visit the Nadra Office. How do I resolve this issue since I have already started online application and paid the required fee for urgent processing. Thanks |

    1. Ms.Saira Bano,

      It makes no difference if you have already paid NADRA the required fee for online services. As difficulties are occurring , it would be better for you to contact the NADRA Officer. Process of changing the “permanent” and “present” addresses needs submission of some property etc. documents. This process is an easy job. Your visit to NADRA will definitely solve your problems, InshaAllah.

    1. Respected Madam,

      There may be some solutions to your problems and you people must not take any tension. All members of your family want to convert Karachi’s “present address” into “permanent address.” Please see following suggestions:-

      It is possible that you or your husband are the owner of your “residence property.” To convert owner’s (husband or wife) permanent address of Punjab into Karachi’s permanent address, the owner (husband or wife) should visit NADRA Centre with following documents:-

      1) Original CNIC of owner (husband or wife)
      2) Original property documents (NADRA Officer will keep photocopy of only 2 pages)
      3) Original Utility Bill in the name & address of owner (husband or wife)

      But, if your residence is on rent, only your husband will go to NADRA with following documents:-

      . Your husband’s original CNIC
      . Original Rent Agreement of your residence, with a photocopy
      . Photocopy of your property owner’s CNIC
      . Original Utility Bill in the name & address of your owner
      . NADRA may ask for any Affidavit with signatures of your husband and owner

      When first person of your family receives CNIC with Karachi’s new permanent address, all of your family members can change address easily.
      ……………………………….

      DOMICILE:-
      You people are the residents of Karachi and your husband has Punjab’s domicile. But, if your children want to have Karachi’s domicile, they can do it after fulfilling some requirements of government. In this connection, we request you to kindly contact lawyers and domicile experts. You can find them outside City Courts, near KMC Head Office, Karachi. These experts are also available at many parts of Karachi. You can ask people at any photostat’s shop. They can also guide you properly.

    1. Dear Mr.Zeeshan,

      W.A.S.
      Perhaps, on CNIC, NADRA adds the word (or profession) with the name. But, we are not aware whether they will add the word / abbreviation “Dr.” before your name or after the name. In computerised data systems, normally nothing is written before the person’s name to keep the data in alphabetical order.

      Therefore, we request you to kindly visit a NADRA Centre for this purpose. They will guide you properly.

  7. Aslam u alykum I am sehar I want to ask I am basically Frome Layyah but now move in Lahore for job I have visited passport office for passport they said u should go Layyah for passport because on your I’d card division is Layyah or you should change your address on I’d card what I have to need for change my address

    1. Ms.Sehar,

      Please try to visit again the Passport Office at Lahore. If passport office agrees to issue passport on your “present address” then apply NADRA to print Lahore’s address as your “present address.” If passport office insists to issue passport only on your “permanent address” then apply NADRA to print on your CNIC the Lahore’s address as your “permanent address” and also as your “present address.” Both addresses will be same.

      For change of your address, please visit NADRA Centre with following documents, in case you are living with any relative and the relative is owner of that property:-

      1) Your original CNIC
      2) Original CNIC of your relative (relative will go NADRA with you)
      3) Original property documents (NADRA Officer will keep photocopy of 2 pages)
      4) Original Utility Bill in the name & address of relative

      But, if your residence is on rent, you may go to NADRA with following documents:-

      . Your original CNIC
      . Your original Rent Agreement with a photocopy
      . Photocopy of your property owner’s CNIC
      . Original Utility Bill in the name & address of owner
      . NADRA may ask for any Affidavit with signatures of you and the owner

      NADRA’s procedure is not difficult and they will fully guide you upon your visit to NADRA.

    1. Dear Mr.Umar,

      There is no problem if your B-Form has Karachi’s address. Now, whenever you go to NADRA, you can make your CNIC on Rawalpindi address. NADRA has no objection if there is any difference between addresses of your B-Form and your CNIC.

  9. Hi sir/madam.
    I live in Askari 10 Lahore. Yesterday a security guard brought a CNIC of some unknown lady. As per him he found that card from roadside.As the present address of the woman on her CNIC was of my house therefore the guard thought as if she belonged to our house. We returned the guard with CNIC saying that she has fakely used our home address to show as resident of Askari 10.
    Her CNIC number is: 35201-5512757-0, Name Fouzia Qadri W/O Muhammad Amjad.
    A maid in possession of CNIC with fake address can be dangerous for the residents of army housing society.
    Please note and do the needful.

  10. Hello

    I have a issue that on ID card my Father’s name is incorrect due to which my father’s name on my SSC, HSSC, Bachelors Degree and Master’s degree is also incorrect but with time I can see the issue will only get complex.

    I am 33 years old and doing Job. Can my issue be resolved? If yes please guide me the complete procedure for it keeping in mind I am a job going person, and I can’t take much time off from the job.

    In addition if I have to go through the lawyer, can the issue be resolved much smoothly? Plus what should be the expected fees for all these steps?

    1. Ms.Kanwal Iftikhar,

      In your question, it is not clear that father’s incorrect name is mentioned on your CNIC or on your father’s own CNIC!

      However, you are requested to kindly provide us following basic information:-

      1) Your father’s name on his CNIC :
      2) Your father’s name on his Matriculation Certificate (SSC) :
      3) Your father’s name on his NADRA Birth Certificate :
      4) Your father’s name on his Union Council’s Birth Certificate :
      5) Your father’s name on his family’s Form-B (“Bay” Form) :

      Above information will help us in providing better guidance in this respect.

      Thanks & Regards.
      PakGuide

          1. Ms.Kanwal Iftikhar,

            This is a complex situation and there are a large number of people who have this kind of problem. It is amazing that when NADRA already had in their records the name of your father as “Iftikhar ud Din,” how they printed your father’s name as “Iftikhar Shakoor.” Normally, after receiving a new CNIC, people also don’t bother to check its data carefully.

            However, following are the possibilities which may be considered by you:-

            ( 1 ) You can apply NADRA to correct your father’s name from “Iftikhar Shakoor” to “Iftikhar ud Din.” The NADRA will easily do it because you have all relevant documents. On the basis of your new CNIC with the correct name of father, you will have to chase Educational Boards/ University for correction of father’s name on your Educational Testimonials. You will start from the Matric Board. The Boards/ University may take some reasonable service charges from you.

            ( 2 ) You have explained that you are on a job and it is difficult to spare enough time for correction of your father’s name. Then, you can also adopt another possible solution. You may leave this situation as it is. Do not make any changes in your CNIC and Educational Testimonials. Your CNIC name is fully matching with your name on educational certificates. Further, the first part of your father’s name on your CNIC (“Iftikhar”) is also matching with the first part of your father’s name (“Iftikhar”) on his own CNIC. If you ever need to explain to someone about the difference between “Shakoor” and “Ud Din,” you can tell that a mistake happened at the time of making your CNIC. But now as per NADRA its correction is not possible. Side by side, for explanation, you can also present your father’s documents, for example his name (i) on your Birth Certificate, (ii) on “Bay” Form, (iii) on father’s Matric Certificate, etc. There is also your father’s CNIC number on Bay-Form. You have many types of evidence to prove that “Iftikhar ud Din” and “Iftikhar Shakoor” are one and the same personality, i.e. your father.

            ( 3 ) We suggest here that you may please send your father’s CNIC No.(without dash) and its Issue Date on 8009. In return, you will receive from NADRA a Family Tree i.e. names of all members of your family. You will also find your name and your father’s name “Iftikhar ud Din.” Simultaneously, you may send your own CNIC No. and its Issue Date. Perhaps, you will now find your father’s name as “Iftikhar Shakoor.” Please take screenshots of NADRA’s both messages and keep them in your record. Also take their prints and file in your records. It is also a proof which can help you a lot.

            ( 4 ) Within Pakistan, we think you will not face any problem. However, if you need in future to go abroad for a visit or education, embassies, sometimes, see the documents thoroughly. But, sometimes they don’t scrutinize deeply. Otherwise, you will have to submit some extra papers, such as any kind of Affidavit etc. But we are sure you can fulfil their requirements.

            ( 5 ) If you feel comfortable, please also consult with any lawyer and it will definitely help you. In the first step, please don’t spend money on a lawyer, but consult only that lawyer who is your relative or friend.

            In light of the above arguments, we hope you will be in a position to take a decision which is upto your satisfaction.

      1. On my CNIC, there is wrong name of my Father, due to which my all educational documents have a same incorrect name entered as per my CNIC.

        His name is Iftikhar ud Din while on my CNIC & Educational Documents it is Iftikhar Shakoor

        And the answer to your question is as under:-

        1) Your father’s name on his CNIC : Iftikhar ud Din
        2) Your father’s name on his Matriculation Certificate (SSC) : Iftikhar ud Din
        3) Your father’s name on his NADRA Birth Certificate : Iftikhar ud Din
        4) Your father’s name on his Union Council’s Birth Certificate : Iftikhar ud Din
        5) Your father’s name on his family’s Form-B (“Bay” Form) : Iftikhar ud Din

      2. Thank you for the detailed reply. I will really go for the step by step solution of this case. Because I know in future, many problems can/will arise so its I guess its better to get solution of the matter right now than making it further late.

    Sir i live with my uncle(who is owner of house) in Lahore. I want to change my Current residence adress from Sheikhupura to uncle’s Lahore address. But i don’t want to change my parents’permanent address. What are required documents?

    1. Dear Mr.Muhammad Asad,

      Walaykum Assalam.
      You may keep your parents’ address of Sheikhupura as the “permanent address” on your CNIC. Now, please apply to NADRA to bring your Uncle’s Lahore address on your CNIC as the Present (current residence) Address.

      Please visit any NADRA Centre with your Uncle having the following documents:-

      1) Your original CNIC
      2) Your Uncle’s original CNIC
      3) Uncle’s original property documents (NADRA Officer will keep photocopy of 2 pages)
      4) In absence of property documents, original Utility Bill in Uncle’s name and address
      5) NADRA may ask for a simple Affidavit with signatures of you and your Uncle

      These are enough documents and NADRA Officer will also fully guide you.

    Sir i live with my uncle(who is owner of house) in rawalpindi. I want to change my permanent adress from kpk to uncle’s rwp address. But i don’t want to change my parents’permanent address. What are required documents?

    1. Ms. Aneeqa,

      Walaykum Assalam….You want to have KPK’s address and also your Uncle’s address as the “permanent address.” Actually, two different addresses are not possible to be kept on CNIC at a time. In this situation, there are two following possibilities for your:-

      a) Keep your parents’ KPK address as a Permanent Address and Uncle’s address as the “Present Address.”

      b) Keep your Uncle’s Rawalpindi Address both as the Permanent Address as well as the Present Address.

      In both situations mentioned above, please visit any NADRA Centre with your Uncle having the following documents:-

      1) Your original CNIC
      2) Your Uncle’s original CNIC
      3) Uncle’s original property documents (NADRA Officer will keep photocopy of only two pages)
      4) In absence of property documents, original Utility Bill in Uncle’s name and address
      5) NADRA may ask for a simple Affidavit with signatures of you and your Uncle

      NADRA’s procedure is quite easy and you will find their full cooperation.

    1. Dear Mr.Tahir,

      Actually, this type of service is not available from NADRA. If you will send CNIC number of a person on 7000, you will get CNIC-Holder’s name and father’s name.

  14. Respected Sir,
    My documented Name is FAISAL QAYYUM & Pen Name (takhallus) is AHMAD.
    i want to add my Pen name with document name as ”FAISAL QAYYUM takhallus AHMAD”

    Kindly guide me

    1. Dear Mr.Faisal Ahmad,

      It is possible, if you wish to change your name on CNIC. Please visit NADRA Centre with your original CNIC and Matriculation Certificate. The NADRA will change your name as “Faisal Qayyum Ahmad.” Perhaps they will not change your name as “Faisal Qayyum Takhallus Ahmad.”

      When you will change your name on CNIC as “Faisal Qayyum Ahmad,” your name on educational certificates/ degrees (Faisal Qayyum) will differ from your CNIC. Within the country, it creates no problems. But, in future, it is possible to create some problems whenever you wanted to go abroad for education or you wanted to apply for a visa to travel abroad. After changing name, you may face some unseen issues.

      However, we are just assuming the above things and, may be, you will face no problems. In the light of above arguments, it is upto you to choose what you feel better. NADRA has no objection for changing the name. Please visit NADRA. They will also guide you properly. Thanks.

  15. I am born in Peshawar, i have recently shifted to Rawalpindi. I want to change the permanent address on my id card. Would my DOMICILE change as well?

    1. Dear Mr.Shahmir Khan,

      Due to holidays and some other problems, we are sorry for being late in replying your question.

      To change your permanent address on your CNIC, please visit any NADRA Centre in Rawalpindi with some documents.

      If your residence is the property of you, your father, mother, brother or sister, then please visit any NADRA Centre in Rawalpindi with following documents:-

      1) Your original CNIC
      2) Original property documents of you, your father, mother, brother or sister, OR
      …..Original Utility Bill in the name of you, your father, mother, brother or sister

      But, if your residence is on rent, please go to NADRA with following documents:-

      1) Your original CNIC
      2) Your owner’s original utility bill on his name & address
      3) Request your owner to go with you (having his original CNIC) to NADRA Centre

      When you will go to NADRA Centre, they will guide you completely and after some days you will get CNIC with new address.

      After getting new CNIC, you can apply for DOMICILE, but we think DOMICILE will be issued to you after spending a specific time in Rawalpindi.

      1. I have a question can you please tell me
        My father want to change there name on CNIC is it possible he just want to change one word for example from Adil to adel is it possible ?
        Or if it change then we all need to update our father name on our CNIC thanks have a nice day

        1. Dear Sir,

          Because of holidays and some technical reasons, we could not reply your question in time. We are sorry for that.

          You have given example of “Adil” and “Adel.” It means, your father wants to change only the spelling of his name. This change is easy and your father should go to any NADRA Centre with his original CNIC. After some procedures, NADRA will change the spelling of his name.

          After spelling change of your father’s name, it is good if other family members also change spelling of your father’s name on their CNICs. Sometimes, difference in spelling creates difficulties.

          .
          Thanks & regards,
          PakGuide

          1. Sory but can you please tell me what kinds of difficulties??
            And what documents need to change the words from Adil to adel can you please tell me thanks

          2. After change in the spelling of your father’s name, it is possible that your family members will not face any difficulty because of difference in the spelling of your father’s Smart CNIC and your family members’ Smart CNIC. Please note, the CNIC with a Chip/ SIM is called Smart CNIC (SCNIC). If your family members have only Normal CNIC (without Chip) then there will be no problem, because names on Normal CNIC are always written in Urdu only. Therefore, there will be no problem of spelling on Normal CNIC.

            But, if your family members (including you) have Smart CNIC, the difference in spelling can sometime create DIFFICULTIES. For example, if you are going out of country for visit or for education, there may be visa difficulties, etc.

            For changing in spelling of your father’s name, your father will go to any NADRA Centre with his original CNIC only. The staff of NADRA will cooperate and will guide properly. After some easy procedures, NADRA will change the spelling of his name.

    1. Dear Mr.Sohail,

      Only NADRA has authority about issuance of CNICs. Your suggestion is good and it would be much better if NADRA gives names and addresses in Urdu and English. On the smart CNICs, having SIMs, NADRA already gives the name of CNIC-holder both in Urdu and English.

  25. hello,i received email about the delivery status of my NICOP card and that it’s sent to DHL,my concern is that when i open my application it shows the correct Present address but on the receiver address on DHL website they did a little mistake,FOR EXAMPLE my address is Dreamland 16,Flat11,Kyiv… But on the DHL receiver address it shows Dreamland 16,Flat1 1KYiv. I wanted to know will the address on my NICOP the same as on my application(the correct one) or the one on DHL receiver? i can still receive the courier because i called them and they said it is not an issue.

    1. Dear Mr.Ammad,

      As you said, you are already in contact with DHL and they have assured you that it is not an issue. Sometimes, addresses have a slight mistake but actual responsibility goes on couriers. We think, you must not be worried and keep yourself in touch with DHL. They will definitely deliver you the NICOP, sooner or later.

They said once your father’s new cnic will ready than after that your mother and also you can change the address at the same time.

          2. Dear Mr.Usman,

            No problem if they refused to make CNIC of your mother. When CNIC of your father will be issued, all your family’s address will be changed at a time. You will need only your family’s CNICs and no other documents will be required by NADRA.

  28. Salam!
    I want to change my name either on CNIC or on educational certificates (till MBBS degree). There is a minor spelling change so should I keep my CNIC name and change the one on educational certificates or the other way around?
    What are the steps for both and the document requirement?
    Thank you!

    1. Dr.Arisha,

      Walaykum Assalam.
      Hopefully you will accept our regret for delay in replying your message.

      To modify your name, we request you to kindly send us the following detail:-

      Your exact name on your CNIC :
      Your exact name on all Educational Certificates/ Degrees :
      Your exact name on NADRA’s Birth Certificate or Form-B :
      Your exact name on Union Council’s Child Birth Certificate :

      In light of the above detail, we may be in a position to suggest something more better about the amendment in your name.

      Best regards,
      PakGuide

      1. Thank you so much for your response!

        Your exact name on your CNIC : Areesha
        Your exact name on all Educational Certificates/ Degrees : Arisha
        Your exact name on NADRA’s Birth Certificate or Form-B : Areesha
        Your exact name on Union Council’s Child Birth Certificate : Areesha

        I want to ask if it is better to keep my CNIC and other related documents’ name, or the name I have on all my educational certificates? What are the documents required for each? And how long will the entire procedure take?

        Thank you in advance!

        1. Ms.Arisha,

          Your name on educational certificates / degrees has the spelling as “Arisha.” To change certificates’ spelling “Arisha” with “Areesha,” you will have to contact many institutions as school, college, university/ medical college, etc. It is possible, but may be a very lengthy task.

          But, to change CNIC’s spelling “Areesha” with “Arisha,” it may be rather an easy job. Here, you will basically need two documents, i.e. your original CNIC and your original Matriculation Certificate. Your name spells “Arisha” on Matric Certificate and normally the Matric Certificate is treated as a basic document for “Name” and “Date of Birth.”

          In presence of Matric Certificate, it makes no difference if the spelling “Areesha” is showing on your Form-B and Union Council’s Birth Certificate.

          Matching the spellings on CNIC and Educational Certificates are must in the life. Sometimes, hurdles come forward when you seek any visa or overseas job. At that time, nobody asks you for any Form-B or Union Council Birth Certificate, etc.

          In light of the above, please take a decision upto your satisfaction.

          .
          Wishing you all the best,

    1. Dea Mr.Khurram Ali,

      Aap apni wife kay CNIC pay unkay father kay naam ki jagah apna naam dalwana chahtay hain. Iskay liay aapki wife kay father yaa mother ko aanay ki bilkul zaroorat nahi hay. Aap apni wife kay saath qareebi NADRA Centre tashreef lay jaen aur yeh documents lay jaen:-

      1) Aapka original CNIC aur photocopy
      2) Aapki wife ka original CNIC aur photocopy
      3) Aapki wife kay father aur mother kay CNIC ki copies (ehtiatan)
      4) Aapka NADRA wala Marriage Certificate aur photocopy
      5) Aapka original Nikahnama aur photocopy (agar aapkay paas hay, warna nahi)

      Filhaal aap apna naam wife kay CNIC pay likhwa lain. Permanent address wohi chalnay dain jo aapkay CNIC pay iswaqt hay. Jab Punjab main aapkay father, mother, brother, sister ….. yaani koi bhi ek fard agar new District & Tehsil ka Permanent Address ka CNIC banwa lay tau yahaan aap apna CNIC bhi Permanent Address kay mutaabiq banwa lena. Filhaal isi mojooda Permanent Address ko hi chalnay deejiay, aapka koi kaam rukayga nahi, InshaAllah.

      Wish you good luck.

And will I change also my address from Kasur District to Lahore? And can I change it from my nearest Nadara headquater office. i.e. from near Expo centre Johar Town Lahore? Plz guide me. Thanks

    1. Dear Mr.Hammad,

      Walaykum Assalam. As you are shifted Lahore District permanently, we suggest you to change first your address only.

      If your residence is your own property, please go to any nearest NADRA Office with following documents:-

      1) Your original CNIC with photocopy
      2) Your original property documents
      OR
      ……Original Utility Bill on your name & address

      But, if your residence is on rent, please go to NADRA with following documents:-
      1) Your original CNIC with photocopy
      2) Your owner’s original utility bill on his name & address
      3) Request your owner to go (with original CNIC) to NADRA Office with you

      When you will go to NADRA Office, they will guide you completely. After your CNIC is made with new address of Lahore, your respectable wife will apply to NADRA for change of her address and her CNIC with new address will be made easily, InshaAllah.

        After matching the father’s name in documents and CNIC, you will be able to apply PMC for required documents.

    1. Walaykum Assalam,

      If your ‘year of birth’ on your CNIC is wrong and ‘actual year of birth’ is different on your Birth Certificate or Matric Certificate, then NADRA will change the year of birth. Otherwise, first you will have to change the ‘year of birth’ in your Birth Certificate or Matric Certificate, then NADRA will change the ‘year’ otherwise not.

      Walaykum Assalam.
      Due to some reasons, we are sorry for delay in replying your message.

      We think NADRA has no objection for change in the names of your daughters’ NICOP. Saudi Arabia has its own laws for printing First name on Birth Certificates, but NADRA offers to Pakistanis to change their names on CNIC or NICOP.

      It would be better if you contact Pakistan Embassy or Consulate and submit NICOPs of both of your daughters for change in the names through NADRA. Also, you may call the Embassy / Consulate for this purpose. We hope you will be easily successful for change of name / family name / surname on both NICOPs.

  52. Change in Marital Status;
    I recently got married please advise how to update my and wife’s marital status and documents required? Will there be new CNIC created? How can my Wife’s CNIC be created as my present address is in Hyderabad and wife’s address in Karachi but I don’t have any utility bill in my name nor any family member present to confirm my Hyderabad address available but I have NADRA marriage certificate in my Hyderabad address with me.

    If I submit my CNIC at NADRA could my wife collect it on my behalf as I am leaving for USA.

    1. Dear Mr.Rohit Kumar,

      As per details mentioned by you, there is no need of any change in your CNIC because there is no column available for “Marital Status” in the CNIC. However, you will have to apply for change of “marital status” and “present address” in your wife’s CNIC.

      Your problem is not difficult at all. Please visit Hyderabad’s NADRA office, together with your wife, having following documents:-
      1) Original CNICs of yourself & your wife’s, plus 2 photocopies
      2) NADRA’s original Marriage Certificate plus 2 photocopies

      NADRA office staff will take photograph & fingerprints of your wife and will feed data in their computer with new “present address” of Hyderabad. There should be no oil, mehendi or any other stain on fingers of your wife. Otherwise, their machine will not be able to take fingerprints.

      At the end, NADRA office will give you a receipt showing collection date on which your wife will collect personally her CNIC from NADRA office.

      Wishing you happy marriage & best regards,

      Even then, if you want to apply online, we are not in a position to give details but we are giving below a link of NADRA in which you may please go to the headings of “General Guidelines to Apply Online.”
      https://id.nadra.gov.pk/

      However, if you want to adopt normal procedure, please take to NADRA Office your original CNIC and its two photocopies. They will take your fresh photograph and finger prints. Your signatures will be changed easily and you will find your CNIC at home by courier. For smart CNIC the fee is Rs.750/- and for normal CNIC it is Rs.400/-.

    Can a wife use the house registry and utility bills which are all on her husband name to change her permanenet address? However the husband is abroad and he does not want to change his permanent address on his CNIC.

    1. Dear Mr.Inayat,
      Sometimes, there are some legal points to change the permanent address. You may please visit NADRA office with a copy of registry, an original utility bill of this address and original CNIC of the lady. If the husband of the lady has Overseas Pakistanis’ Identity Card (NICOP) then also show the photocopy of this NICOP to NADRA Office staff.

      Aap kay bachon kay birth certificates Rawalpindi Cantt. kay banay huay hain. Agar bachon ki dates of birth likhwanay main aap say koi ghalti ho gai thi tau aap Cantonment waalon say contact kar kay inko theek karwa saktay hain. Agar woh theek kar datay hain tau iski bunyaad per aap NADRA say nai dates kay saath new B-Form banwa saktay hain. Iskay ilawa koi doosra hal (solution) hamari nazar main nahi hay.

      (bill in the name of owner, with address of your residence)
      04. Your friend (whose name is in agreement) must go NADRA with you
      05. Your friend should have his original CNIC & copy
      06. Keep enough money with you for CNIC’s fee payment
      07. For fingerprints, avoid dust/ oil etc. on your fingers

      1. Sir i went today with my friend (jis k naam pe rent agreement hai as per your guidance
        with rent agreement and everything ) nadra mega centre and wait 2 hours for my turn . When my token number called i went to that counter with my friend but that guy said the rent agreement must be on your name for changing the present address otherwise we will not change the present address you should prove the rental agreement is on your name . Please tell me what should i do right now . My 2 hours are wasted . Please guide me what to do now? what is the solution? Or can i change my present address online through nadra website? Online procedure main bh rent agreement mere naam ka required hoga please guide me!

        1. Dear Mr.Mumtaz,

          You know that final authority is NADRA and sometimes they change their procedures without any public announcement. If they are insisting Agreement on your name, there may be following possible choices:-

          1) You and your uni friends may request/ convince your owner to cancel present Agreement with your friend and make a new Agreement with you. If you will tell the owner about your part time job, we hope he will cooperate.

          2) If you have any close relatives in this city, you can talk them. If they agree, you can go to NADRA and ask the procedure and tell them that you are living with your close relatives. We have heard that many students are doing this. Otherwise, try to use first choice and make Agreement in your name.

          No online system is in our knowledge about changing address in CNIC. And…….and don’t worry about wastage of two hours at NADRA. We Pakistanis have a lot of spare time to waste, because we don’t want to grow and develop in this digital and competitive world 🙂
