  1. I want to change my current adress. My parent’s CNIC has different adress than mine. My whole eduction is from Punjab but now I am living in Karachi and want to change my current address from Islamabad to Karachi. Is it possible?

    1. Dear Mr.Kashif,

      It is quite possible to change your current address from Islamabad to Karachi. It makes no difference if your parents’ address is different from your address.

      Please visit nearest NADRA Centre with following documents:-

      If your residence is your own property or your relative’s property:-
      (1) Original CNICs of you and your relative
      (2) Original property documents (NADRA Officer keeps photocopy of only 2 pages)
      (3) Original Utility Bill in your name or your relative’s name, with photocopy

      If your residence is on rent:-
      . Your original CNIC
      . Photocopy of your property owner’s CNIC
      . Original Rent Agreement in your name, with a photocopy
      . Original Utility Bill, having owner’s name and address on it
      . NADRA can ask for an Affidavit with signatures of you and your property owner

      NADRA has easy procedures and they will fully guide you upon your visit to NADRA. You will find your new CNIC with Karachi’s current address within 30 days.

  2. hi…

    1. Ms.Aroosa Sajjad,

      Sub say behtar tau yehi hoga keh aap baby ka passport banwanay kay liay Rawalpindi by road jaen. One-year baby ki wajah say agar aap log rent-a-car say jaen tau baby ko sambhaalna aasaan hoga. Motorway say 5-hours aur GT Road say 6-hours main Rawalpindi pohonch jaengay. Baby kay B-Form main bhi kisi changes ki zaroorat nahi paregi.

      Lekin agar yeh mumkin nahi tau public ki rehnumai kay liay Passport Office nay Helpline 0800-34477 aur 051-111-344-777 di hui hay. Kisi shikayat ya maloomaat kay liay email address dg@dgip.gov.pk bhi mojood hay. Passport Office say aap ko latest information mil jaegi aur koi raasta nikal aega, InshaAllah.

  9. Aoa sir,
    I am kasmiri and we have houses in both places karachi and kashmir and we are living in karachi since my birth( 25 years) but in my id card permanent address is of azad kashmir while temporary is of karachi. How can our karachi’s be permanent and other temporary? Can it be proceeded by only stamp paper because aur colony is non leased.
    And in our electricity bill my father name misspelled from nazeer khan to naseer khan.

    1. Dear Mr.Muhammad Tahseen,

      On electricity bill, you can get corrected the spelling of your father’s name from Karachi Electric(KE). But, due to non-leased colony, the documents of your father’s property may not be acceptable to NADRA.

      You are from Karachi by birth and therefore please firstly try to get Karachi’s Domicile and PRC. Then it will be more easy to change your permanent address from Kashmir to Karachi.

      In view of our above opinion, please contact NADRA Centre personally for this matter and they will definitely guide you to the best solution.

    1. Dear Mr.Huzaifa Butt,

      If you have crossed the age of 18 years and you are making CNIC first time, then it is very easy for you to have your city name Sialkot on your CNIC, because property (house) is on your father’s name. Please visit nearest NADRA Centre with your father and the following documents:-

      1) Original CNIC of your father
      2) Original property documents (NADRA Officer will take photocopy of only 2 pages)
      3) Original Utility Bill in the name of your father
      4) Your original Matric Certificate and photocopy

      You will get new CNIC within 30 days, with the address of Sialkot. When you will receive your CNIC, all the other family members will be able to change easily the address of Sialkot on their CNICs.

    1. Dear Mr.Farhan,

      Normally, at the back-side of NICOP, the full address of foreign country (where you live or work) is given as your “present address.” However, through the following Pak Identity link of NADRA, you can modify addresses in your NICOP. You can add Saudia’s full address as the “present address.” And also can add house number and street address into Pakistan’s permanent address.

      . Original CNICs of father and mother
      . Original Rent Agreement with a photocopy
      . Photocopy of rental property-owner’s CNIC
      . Original Utility Bill, having owner’s name and address on it
      . Affidavit along with property documents from house owner

  14. Dear sir
    I want make small changes in my CNIC by adding my tribe to the following names. The changes i want to make are i want to add “KHAN” between my first and last name and with my father’s nane I want to add my Tribe “Kakar” in the last. I want to make these changes not only in my CNIC but also in my Marksheet and B-form too. Can you kindly guide me with it that how can i make changes in all documents(Cnic/B-form/Marksheets)
    One thing i want to make it clear that i am not changing my name its just the addition of “KHAN” between my first and last name and the addition of “KAKAR”at the last of my father’s name. About this factor i saw a video that this kind of activity doesn’t counts in name changing so Nadra will not require any kind of documents like a statement from the oath commissioner etc… Kindly guide with all the process n steps.
    Thankyou

    1. Dear Sir,

      (1) You can apply NADRA to (i)add the word “Khan” before & after your name and (ii)add the word “Kakar” at the end of your father’s name. NADRA will possibly do it without any additional papers.

      (2) In B-Form, perhaps addition in your and your father’s names may not be possible for NADRA. However, you must apply NADRA for this purpose. It is possible that NADRA may have some alternates.

      (3) For the changes/additions in your name on Marks-Sheets, you will have to contact Education Board Office. They have the authority for these changes.

      Please visit nearest NADRA Centre. The NADRA Officer will fully guide you and you will get new CNIC with additions in your name, InshaAllah.

  15. Hi sir, I belong to Jhang and have that address as my permanent one on my NIC. I am a doctor by proffession so I recently moved to Lahore. Here I live on rent. But I won’t move to anywhere else for 5-10 years. So Can I make this(rental) address my PERMANENT one? although its not my own house but I want to REMOVE the PREVIOUS address from my NIC as I won’t move back there. My father’s address is also the previous one and Agreement is over his Name. So he also needs to change?

    1. Ms.Hania Eman,

      You can apply NADRA for having Lahore’s address as your “Permanent Address.” As the Rent Agreement is in your father’s name, it would be more comfortable if your father firstly applies for converting Jhang’s address into Lahore’s address. After changing address on your father’s CNIC, you will have nothing to do except submitting your father’s CNIC copy to NADRA, and you will get new CNIC with Lahore’s address as the permanent address.

      However, if your father does not want to make any change in his address, you can also apply alone. Following basic documents are required for this purpose:-

      (1) Your original CNIC
      (2) Your father’s original CNIC & photocopy
      (3) Original & photocopy of Rent Agreement
      (4) Original Utility Bill having landlord’s name on it
      (5) Photocopy of landlord’s CNIC

      It is possible that NADRA Officer may ask any formal “Affidavit” having signatures of your father and the landlord, proving that landlord is agreed on this change of address. Therefore, please visit nearest NADRA Centre in Lahore and you will be able to get new CNIC with Lahore’s address as your permanent address, InshaAllah.

  17. Asalam u Alikum. I want to make my CNIC card from NADRA as I have reached the required age for CNIC card. But, most probably we will shift to another province, due to some reasons, in next month or even in time less than a month. At present, it is necessary for me to make CNIC from NADRA, due to some reasons. In this regard, please answer my following questions:
    (A) Suppose, I receive my CNIC card from NADRA. After few days or weeks of receiving the CNIC card from NADRA, we shift to another province. Then, we have to make CNIC of that newly shifted province. Will it be possible to make CNIC of this new province from NADRA, by surrendering the previous one, in this short time gap bewteen receiving the previous province CNIC and now for the CNIC of newly shifted province?
    (B) suppose I have applied for CNIC. And before receiving the CNIC from NADRA i.e. its status is under process in NADRA and days are left for receiving CNIC, and we shift to another province in this situation then what will be the case?
    (C) Is it necessary for the applicant to physically receive CNIC from NADRA? Or a father can receive his son’s CNIC from NADRA or a son can receive his father’s CNIC from NADRA?

    1. Dear Mr.Raza Haider,

      (1) If you have reached the age of 18 years, you can apply for CNIC and by paying “Executive Fee” of Rs.2,150 you can get CNIC within seven (7) days. If you pay Urgent Fee of Rs.1,150 you will get within 15 days. Therefore, you will be able to get CNIC before leaving your province.

      (2) After receiving your new CNIC at your present province, you can apply at new province for “change of address” in your CNIC. There is no time limit and you can apply even after some weeks of shifting at new province. Now, you can pay “Normal Fee” of Rs.400 only at new province and you will receive CNIC within 30 days.

      (3) NADRA strictly gives CNIC personally to the CNIC-holder. Your case is special and you can get information directly from NADRA Officer, whether they will deliver your CNIC to your father or not. May be, they give you special permission and they deliver CNIC to your father.

      (4) If NADRA does not allow to deliver your CNIC to your father, you may stay here and don’t go with family. You may go to new province after getting your CNIC.

      These are some suggestions and we request you to please also collect further information from NADRA Office. No doubt, you will find a better way, InshaAllah.

  18. السلام علیکم سر. سر مجھے آپ کی رہنمائی کی بہت ضرورت ہے. سر ہم ملتان میں رہتے ہیں. میرے والد صاحب 20 سال سے زائد عرصے سے MEPCO (Wapda) میں ملازم ہیں جو کہ ایک وفاقی سرکاری ادارہ ہے. شروع سے ہی ہم سب گھر والوں کا شناختی کارڈ, ڈومیسائل , برتھ سرٹیفکیٹ, ووٹ, تعلیم , نادرہ ریکارڈ وغیرہ ملتان کا ہے. یہاں پر ہمارا اپنا رہائشی مکان ہے جو کے والد صاحب کے نام پر ہے. میرا ددھیال اور ننھیال دونوں ملتان سے ہیں. لیکن سر میں بچپن میں اپنی والدہ کے ساتھ قریباً چھ ماہ کی عمر سے پانچ سال کی عمر تک کراچی رہا ہوں. لیکن پھر والدہ کے ساتھ ملتان آگیا تھا اور سکول سے لے کر انٹرمیڈیٹ کی تعلیم یہیں ملتان سے کی ہے. لیکن پچھلے ساڑھے تین سال کے زائد عرصے سے میری والدہ کراچی میں ہیں( میرے والد صاحب کے خالہ زاد بھائی کے گھر پر). والد صاحب بھی کبھی کبھار کراچی کا چکر لگاتے رہتے ہیں. اور اب میں والدہ کے پاس رہ کر اپنی یونیورسٹی کی تعلیم کراچی سے کرنا چاہتا ہوں. لیکن اِس کے لیے ہمارا شناختی کارڈ اور ڈومیسائل کراچی کا ہونا ضروری ہے. میری عمر 21 سال سے کم ہے. ہمارا ڈومیسائل و شناختی کارڈ میرے والد صاحب کے ڈومیسائل و شناختی کارڈ کی بنیاد پر ہی بنے گا. سر میرے والد کی سرکاری ملازمت کے آغاز وقت بھی سارا ریکارڈ و کاغذات ملتان کے تھے. لیکن میرے والد سرکاری ملازمت کے آغاز سے کچھ عرصہ قبل تقریباً چانچ سال اپنے خالہ زاد بھائی کے پاس کراچی رہ چکے ہیں. ہماری کراچی میں شروع سے کوئی پراپرٹی وغیرہ نہیں ہے. لیکن میرے والد صاحب کے خالہ زاد بھائی پیدائشی طور پر کراچی سے ہیں اور شروع سے وہیں پر ملازمت کر رہے ہیں اور اُن کا اپنا ذاتی رہائشی مکان بھی کراچی میں ہے. سر میرا سوال یہ ہے کہ کیا کوئی ایسا قانونی راستہ ہے کہ میں, والد اور والدہ شناختی کارڈ پر پہلے اپنا ایڈریس ملتان سے کراچی کا چینج کروا کر, اور پھر ملتان کا ڈومیسائل کینسل کروا کر کراچی کا بنوا لیں. اگر کوئی ایسا قانونی راستہ ہے تو ایسا کرنے سے میرے والد صاحب کی سرکاری ملازمت یا ہمارے کسی بھی معاملے میں مستقبل میں کوئی پیچیدگی یا پریشانی تو نہیں ہوگی؟ سر پلیز اِس مسئلے کو حل کرنے میں میری مدد و رہنمائی کریں. سر میں اس بارے میں بہت پریشان ہوں.

    1. Dear Mr.Hamid Chaudhary,

      Aap ka bunyadi maqsad yeh hay keh aap University ki taleem Karachi say haasil karna chahtay hain. Yeh ek achhi baat hay. Aap jaantay hain keh hamari website PakGuide ka kaam sirf yeh hay keh CNIC, Driving License aur Mobiles waghera kay baaray main public ko guide kia jae. Domicile waghera hamara subject nahi hay, lekin phir bhi hamari koshish hogi keh aap ko ziada say ziada guidance aur tajaveez pesh karain. In tajaveez ki roshni main aap kisi Domicile Expert say baat kijiay ga. InshaAllah aap ka problem zaroor hal hojaega.

      TAJAVEEZ:-

      (1) Universities main doosray soobon (provinces) ka bhi quota hota hay. Karachi main aap kay father kay cousin (Khala-zaad Bhai) kay zariay bhi aap universities ki maloomat lay saktay hain.

      (2) Father kay cousin ka makaan choonkeh zaati hay, isliay aap apna aur mother ka “mustaqil pata” (permanent address) Karachi ka karwa saktay hain. Phir mother ka Karachi ka domicile banwa lain. Sirf mother kay domicile ki bunyaad pay bhi aap ka domicile ban sakta hay. Father kay domicile ya address change ki shaayad zaroorat naa ho.

      (3) Domicile kay expert log aap ko ya tau photocopy waalon ya Karachi City Courts kay baahir shops per mil saktay hain.

      (4) Aap kay father ko shaayad Karachi kay domicile aur address change ki zaroorat na paray, aur unkay mojooda job kay liay bhi koi problem peda nahi hoga.

      Aap kay father kay cousin aap ko tamaam maloomat jama kar kay day saktay hain aur phir aap ka kaam aasaan hojaega, InshaAllah.

      Goodluck & best wishes.

        میں اپنے والد صاحب کی ملازمت اور ان کے بارے میں دیگر تفصیلات بھی لکھی ہیں. سر براہِ کرم اِس پوری صورتحال کو مد نظر رکھتے ہوئے میری رہنمائی کر دیں. ایک بار پھر آپکا بہت بہت شکریہ…..

        1. Dear Hamid Sahib,

          Agar aap kay university admission kay liay walid sahib ka bhi CNIC address aur Domicile Karachi ka hona zaroori hay tau yeh ek technical moamla hay. Aap kay father MEPCO main Punjab kay domicile pay mulazimat kar rahay hain. Ab agar woh Sindh ka domicile banwatay hain tau Multan Electric Power Co. main unki mulazimat ki kia position hogi!

          Iskay liay sub say behtar yeh hoga keh aap MEPCO kay HR (Personnel Deptt.) say maloomat haasil karain. Woh aap ko sahi aur exact mashwara day saktay hain. Jiski roshni main aap bilkul theek faisla kar sakaingay.

          2. Dear Mr.Hamid,

            Mayoos bilkul na hon aur HR Department say contact kay baad aap ko yaqeenan koi na koi solution zaroor mil jaega. Domicile kay moamlaat hamari field nahi hay, lekin hum nay jahaan tak ho saka aap ko guide karnay ki koshish ki hay. Aap HR kay ilawa mazeed logon aur domicile kay experts say maloomat laingay tau InshaAllah aap ka problem zaroor solve hojaega.

  19. Dear Sir,

    I am currently moved in a shared accommodation (Apartment) in ISB as most of the students/ workers do. Since I need to renew my CNIC as per my current location, may I change my present address according to my current residing address.
    Please note that as we are living in apartment on sharing basis, and we have Rent agreement with the Owner.

    As per the given situation above, pls guide me how can I change my Present address and what documents do I need to provide Nadra. Thanks.

    Appreciate your prompt response.

    1. Dear Mr.Bilal,

      You can apply NADRA for renewal of your CNIC having your shared residence’s address as the “Present Address.” Please visit nearest NADRA Centre with following documents:-

      . Your original CNIC
      . Original Rent Agreement with a photocopy
      . Photocopy of your property owner’s CNIC
      . Original Utility Bill, having owner’s name and address
      . NADRA can require an Affidavit with signatures of tenant(s) and your property owner

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

    1. Dear Sir,

      NADRA say tau naam change ho sakta hay, lekin educational documents pay naam change karwanay kay liay Matric Board aur Intermediate Board say contact karna hoga. Tamaam Educational Boards kay apnay qawaneen hotay hain. Isliay CNIC pay wife ka naam change karwanay say pehlay behtar yehi hoga keh aap Matric aur Inter Boards say khood jaa kar maloomat lay lain taakeh sahi picture saamnay aa sakay.

      W.Salam.
      Aap ka “Rent Agreement” jis family member (father, mother ya sister) kay naam say bana hua hay, behtar hoga keh pehlay isi family member ka “permanent address” change karwa liya jae. Jab iss family member ka address change ho jaega tau iski bunyaad pay ghar kay baaqi members ka “permanent address” bohot aasani say change hojaega. Lekin agar Rent Agreement aap kay naam pay nahi hay tau bhi aap address change kay liay apply kar sakti hain.

      Farz kijiay Rent Agreement aap kay naam hay, tau yeh documents lay ker aap apnay qareebi NADRA Centre tashreef lay jaen:-

      . Aap ka original CNIC
      . Original Rent Agreement aur photocopy
      . Maalik Makaan kay CNIC ki photocopy
      . Original Utility Bill jis pay maalik makan ka naam aur address ho
      . NADRA aap say Halaf-nama (Affidavit) maang sakta hay jis pay owner aur aap kay sign hon

      NADRA ka procedure ziada mushkil nahi hay aur aap ka kaam jald hojaega, InshaAllah.

    1. Dear Mr.Nazar Wahab,

      (1) It is easy for you to add in your CNIC the “mostakil address.” You are saying that some of your family members already have mostakil address. Please go to NADRA Centre with any family member with original CNIC of you and your family member. Your mostakil address will be added in your CNIC. It is more easy than online process.

      (2) You can also add your name in your wife’s CNIC. Please go to NADRA with your wife with original CNIC of you and your wife. Also take with you the original and photocopy of your Nikah-nama.

Thanks

    1. Dear Mr.Mehran Khan,

      Your wife’s name on her CNIC is now different from her name on educational and domicile certificates, which may create difficulty in future. However, you can easily change again her name from Aqsa Mehran to Aqsa Bibi. Along with your wife, please contact your nearest NADRA Centre with following documents:-

      1) Your wife’s original CNIC
      2) Your original CNIC
      3) Your original Nikah-nama and photocopy
      4) Original & photocopy of your wife’s Matric Certificate and Domicile
      5) Original & photocopy of your wife’s Birth Certificate

      If NADRA needs any additional document, you can submit them and your wife’s new CNIC will be issued with her name as “Aqsa Bibi.”

  25. Dear sir,
    This is Hassan Bashar from UAE. I have two questions. First one that i want to change the Permanent address in my CNIC in Pakistan online from here. My father has already changed the address in his CNIC because we have been shifted to another village but when i go to online application and then go to payment so they ask for card number and CVC security code so please guide me how i can pay online because i have no credit card and only have debit card from Meezan bank Roshan digital account. So is is possible to pay from debit card? Also they show the charges PKR 930 in my application on top side so that is fine or not because for modification they show USD 20 for category-B countries in charges list.
    Second question is that i want to put my name with my wife name in her CNIC so for that she need to change her name in all academic documents also or there is no need for that?
    Please guide me i shall be very thankful.

    1. Dear Mr.Hassan Bashar,

      (1) You can pay through Credit Card and also through Debit Card. Normally, both are acceptable. They are showing charges PKR 930 for modification (address change, etc.). But, it is possible that they are showing PKR 930 for CNIC and the charges for Category-B countries are USD 20 for NICOP. However, please try to use Debit Card and firstly pay PKR 930. If it is not accepted by NADRA, then please pay USD 20. Sometimes, online procedure becomes slightly difficult, but please try and you will find the desired solution, InshaAllah.

      (2) If you add your name in your wife’s CNIC, there will be no need to change your wife’s name in her academic certificates / documents. But, please do not add your own name together with your wife’s name. For example, if your wife’s name is “ABC” then do not convert it into “ABC Hassan Bashar.” Otherwise, you will also have to change her name in her academic documents.

    1. Dear Mr.Hassan Bashar,

      It is good that your father has address of new village on his CNIC. Now, it will be very easy for each member of family to apply for new village’s address on his/her CNIC.

      Currently, you are in UAE and you can also change/modify address online on your CNIC. Please open NADRA’s following link and click “Create New Account” by which you will create your account with NADRA’s online service Pak-Identity:-

      https://id.nadra.gov.pk/e-id/authenticate.PAK

      In this link, you will see “Modification” by which you will be able to change your address. However, if you are not in emergency, then we suggest that when you visit Pakistan please try to change your address. Your father has already changed this and it will also be very easy for you to change your address. By paying “urgent fees” you can receive your CNIC within 15 or 7 days.

  37. Assalam o Alaikum,
    Dear Sir, I am a resident of Rawalpindi and I am here since my birth in Islamabad. I have the permanent address of Muzaffargarh and current address of Rawalpindi (same as my father’s). Currently I am an undergraduate student and I want to change one of my addresses to Islamabad. I heard that if an individual wanted to change his address, it is compulsory to show the same address of one of his blood relation. My question is that can I not independently shift to a home in Islamabad as a lessee and get my address changed without any effect on my parents CNIC?
    Best Regards.

    1. Dear Mr.Saad Hassan,

      W.Assalam.
      For someone, who wants to get changed his address, it is not compulsory to show the same address of one of his blood-relation. However, if you present CNIC of any blood relation, having the same address, it makes very easy to apply NADRA for having this address on your CNIC.

      You can live independently as a Lessee in Islamabad. Whatever are the addresses on CNICs of your parents, you can apply NADRA for any address of Islamabad. It will be reasonable if you please contact NADRA Office in Islamabad for having current (or present) address of Islamabad on your CNIC with following documents:-

      1) Your original CNIC
      2) Original Rent Agreement (whenever you are moved to Islamabad)
      3) Original Utility Bill of the owner, having his name & address on the bil

      If any additional document is required by NADRA, they will ask you and you will be able to get a new CNIC with “current/ present” address of Islamabad. Please keep the Muzaffargarh address as the “permanent” address on your CNIC.

      1. Dear Sir,
        Thanks for your positive and efficient reply.
        Sir, I read your advice to retain my Muzaffargarh address as the permanent address. But I had planned to change my temporary address to Islamabad and shift my current home address in Rawalpindi as my permanent address. That way I won’t have the Muzaffargarh address in my CNIC. Is it not possible? Or will I be at any loss if I do so?
        Best Wishes.

        1. Dear Sir,

          It is quite possible to have Rawalpindi’s address as your permanent address. We suggested Muzaffargarh’s address just for keeping in mind that your “permanent address” will continue to be matching with your father’s permanent address. Sometimes, this chain of matching of address helps you at some places.

          However, it is totally upto your choice to decide as per your needs. When you will be visiting NADRA Office, you will find this matter as an easy job, InshaAllah.

Now, we want to shift to Karachi due to some reasons. So that we have to change our temporary and permanent addresses on CNIC from Lahore to Karachi. My query is that can my father change his temporary and permanent address from Lahore to Karachi, by continuing his govt job in Lahore, Or he has to left his job for this purpose?

    1. Dear Mr.Hassaan,

      As far as other family members are concerned, they can shift to Karachi and get changed their addresses from NADRA. But, your father’s matter may please be discussed with HR Department of his company. The HR Deptt. may possibly advise him to keep “permanent address” of Karachi and “present address” of Lahore on his CNIC. However, there is no question of leaving job in any case of changing his address.

        1. Dear Mr.Hassaan,

        1. Ms.Afsheen Masood,

          Temporary Address actually “Present Adress” (Mojooda Pata) hi hota hay. Jahaan tak hamari Domicile ki mehdood maloomaat hain, agar kisi “mojooda address” pay aap one-year say ziada rihaaish-pazeer hain tau Domicile kay liay haqdaar (eligible) hain. Iskay liay aap ko mukammal maloomat City/ Distt. Court kay bahir photostat ki shops say mil sakti hay.

          Agar rent pay ghar hay tau Temporary (Mojooda) Address tau aasaani say change hojaega. Permanent Address bhi change ho sakta hay lekin maalik makaan per munhasir (depend) hay keh woh kis hud tak aap say cooperate karta hay. Iskay liay aap qareebi NADRA Centre say contact kijiay, InshaAllah kaam zaroor hojaega.

    Regards

    1. Dear Mr.Mazhar Ullah,

      Normally, NADRA writes your name on your CNIC as per name on your Birth Certificate, B-Form or your Matric Certificate. In light of your name on Service Book as “Mazhar Ullah” please apply NADRA for converting your name from “Mazhar Ullah Khan” into “Mazhar Ullah” only. The NADRA may specially remove the word “Khan” from your CNIC.

      But, please also see that after removing “Khan” from your name on CNIC, your name on your Educational Certificates/ Degrees will still have the word “Khan.” There will be difference in your name between CNIC and Educational Certificates.

    1. Dear Mr.Ayaz Ahmed,

      You can see that no Family Number (Khaandaan No.) is given on Smart NIC. However, if you have normal CNIC (without SIM), you will find a Family Number on it.

      If any son of a family gets married, he will get another Family Number because now the son has his own separate family. Otherwise, NADRA does not change a Family Number. But, you are advised to contact NADRA Centre for exact information and they will guide you properly.

  59. Dear Sir

    My CNIC (Smart Card – SNIC) includes my permanent address, which is the address of the house my father used to own. My father has recently sold out that house. And I have been living on rent on a different address. Now we (I and my father) do not own any house now (neither in Karachi, nor elsewhere in Pakistan).

    Please advise me if I should get BOTH my permanent and present address changed on my SNIC or is it okay to change ONLY my present address for now (to the location where I am living right now, on rent).

    If only present address is to be changed, what would happen to my permanent address in NADRA record (because the house with that address has been sold to another person and is no longer in father’s ownership).

    I understand the requirements for changing present address is:
    (1) Original CNIC, (2) Original Rent Agreement with a Photocopy, (3) Photocopy Property Owner’s CNIC and (4) Original Utility Bill, having the owner’s name with address
    And I do have all these things available. Only issue is that the Rent agreement is 3 years old now. Should I get a fresh one?

    Best Regards
    Abu Abdullah

    1. Dear Mr.Abu Abdullah,

      As you have explained, you are now residing on rent. Therefore, it is not necessary to retain on your SNIC the previous “Permanent” address of father-owned house. It is suggested that you may apply NADRA for having your rental residence’s address both as the “Permanent” as well as the “Present” address on your SNIC.

      For this purpose, please visit your nearest NADRA Centre with following documents:-

      . Your original SNIC
      . Original & “valid” Rent Agreement (expired Agreement is not acceptable to NADRA)
      . Photocopy of your property owner’s CNIC
      . Original Utility Bill, having owner’s name and address
      . NADRA may ask an Affidavit with signatures of you and your property owner

      In case, NADRA insists you to retain “permanent” address of your father-owned house, you may argue for a new “permanent” address. But, if NADRA is not ready to change your “permanent” address, for the time being please leave it and retain “permanent” address of your father-owned house. It will make you no difference. In future, if situation changes, you may try again to amend your “permanent” address.

It is also possible that they may replace your husband’s name with your father’s name without any divorce papers. Because, perhaps, it is your own choice to show husband name or father name on your CNIC.

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)

  65. 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.

  68. 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.

      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.

  70. 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.

  71. 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.

            .
            Best Regards,

      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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

        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.

          .

          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.

      2) Original CNIC of your Blood-Relative or Wife, having your home’s address, OR
      …any original Utility Bill on your Name and Address of new house

    In my NIC birth year is 1993 and rest of the educational documents(till graduation) have 1992. Now it can’t be changed but I want to make NIC from 1993 to 1992. Is it possible?

      If your Birth Year is 1992 in the Matric Certificate and Birth Certificate, NADRA will make your CNIC with your Birth Year 1992.

  86. 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.

    1. Ms.Maryam,

      Walaykum Assalam.
      There is no problem to renew your father’s id card (CNIC) and to change permanent address on his CNIC.

      You have shifted to the present house. Now, for changing your father’s present permanent address, please go to the NADRA Centre with your father. Also take with you following documents:-

      1) Your father’s original id card (CNIC)
      2) Your own original CNIC and a photocopy
      3) Original property documents of your house. NADRA keeps only photocopy of 1 or 2 pages
      4) Original Electric or Gas or Water Bill of your house with a photocopy

      You will receive your father’s renewed CNIC within 30 days with new permanent address. After receiving his new CNIC, all of your family members can very easily renew their CNICs with new permanent address.

      1. Sir kindly Inform me that my father and mother both want to change the permanent address, can they both change address on cnic at the same time? Or before my father change the address then my mother?

        1. Dear Mr.Usman,

          Your father and mother can change Permanent Address at the same time. If property is in your father’s or mother’s name, please visit NADRA Centre with your father and mother with following documents:-

          1) Original CNICs of your father and mother
          2) Original property documents (NADRA Officer will keep photocopy of only two pages)
          3) Original Utility Bill in the name of father or mother

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

          . Original CNICs of your father and mother
          . Original Rent Agreement with a photocopy
          . Photocopy of your property owner’s CNIC
          . Original Utility Bill, having the owner’s name and address
          . NADRA may ask for an Affidavit with signatures of father/mother and your property owner

          1. Thank u sir, I visited Nadra ofc along with my father and mother but they said that first your father’s cnic will change than your’s mother, they refused to change both of them cnic at the same time. 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.

          3. Dear Mr.Usman Ahmed,

            Please enter your application’s TRACKING ID and send to 8400.
            You will know the status of CNIC.

            If you don’t receive any status, nothing is to worry. Your CNIC will be received in their given time. It CNIC not received in time, then please go to NADRA Centre. You will find the Card there because sometimes courier does not find correct address and CNIC comes back to the NADRA Centre.

  89. 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.

          .

  90. Sir, Mai ne apne wife ke CNIC pe unke father ki Jaaga apna naam lagana hai. Aur mujy documents to pta hai sb mere pas Marriage Certificate bhi hai sb hai yahan tak wife ki mother & Father ki CNIC ki copy bhi hai.. but issue yeh ke wife ke mother & Father ka ana zruri hai Kya.. kyn ke woh punjab mai hain aur ana unka yahan nae hota hai.. to inke bhagair meri wife ke naam ke agay mera naam nae askhta kya jab tak woh present na hn to.. ??
    And second question ke mujy apna Permanent address change krwana hai Punjab ka hai wahan district tehsil change hue hain to woh hoskhta hai Kya aur kya requirements hngi kyn ke abhi tak mere ghar mai kisi ne yeh permanent address change nae krwaya hai.

    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

      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.

      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.

    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.

      1. AOA sir mane apna ghr khareeda ha ma apna address chang krwana chata hon butt utility meter already lagy Han pehly honur k name say so witch need to change adress

    1. Dear Mr.Ubaid,

      Poori family kay NIC cards pay single address karwana koi mushkil nahi hay. Agar bohot jaldi nahi hay tau pehlay family ka koi ek member apna NIC address single karwa lay. Baqi log iskay baad aasani say address change karwa saktay hain.

      Apnay original NIC aur photocopy kay saath qareebi NADRA office jaa ker Mojooda Pata aur Mustaqil Pata ek karnay ki darkhwast karain. Jis ghar ka address likhwana hay uska orginal bijli ka bill bhi lay ker jaen.

      Normal NIC ki fees 400/- rupay hay aur 30 days main aap ko NIC mil jaega. Pehla NIC mil jae tau baad main poori family kay address change karwa lain.

      Aap kay paas Court ya Council ka koi paper nahi hay, isliay ho sakta hay keh NADRA ka staff aap ko guide karay aur ziada imkaan yehi hay keh woh aap ko Affidavit (Halafnama) banwanay ko kahain. Iss “Affidavit” main aap apni tafseel bataengi. Isi Affidavit ki bunyaad pay InshaAllah aap ka CNIC father kay naam kay saath bana dia jaega.

      We are really very sorry that we are also not aware of complete procedure for changing name in so much documents. There are many departments/authorities involved in this chain and this is a long journey.

      Therefore, unfortunately we are not in a position to give any guideline in this case and we hope that you will not mind it. Now, it will be better if you get second opinion from somewhere.

  113. 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,
      PakGuide.pk

      As per details given by you, there is no difficulty to change your Present Address on your CNIC. You will have to go NADRA Office nearest to your residence. Following guidance will help you to solve your problem:-

      02. Original Rent Agreement and its copy

      03. Latest Original Utility Bill and its copy
      (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
      08. Keep a ball pen with you

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 🙂
