    1. Dear Mr.Sardar Naeem,

      W.Salam … Aap apnay saath yeh documents lay kar NADRA Centre tashreef lay jaen:-

      1) Aap ka original CNIC
      2) Aap kay father ka original CNIC
      3) Aap ka Birth Certificate
      4) Aap ka B-Form
      5) Aap ki Matric Marks Sheet

      Behtar hoga keh aap father ko bhi apnay saath NADRA Centre lay jaen. InshaAllah aap kay CNIC may father ka naam theek hojaega.

  2. If someone changed the address from one province to another then he wants to apply in that province but the Id of that province if log in appears like you are not permanent resident. So guide..

    1. Dear Mr.Hasnain,

      Someone changed his address from one province to another new province and then applied for a job at new province. After logging-in, there was a reply that you are not permanent resident (of this new province). May be they are not updated well, or may be this is a government job and they have their own requirements of Domicile or PRC (Permanent Residence Certificate).

      However, it is better to contact the employers personally or through email, telephone, etc. The employers are in a position to explain well this situation.

      .
      With best wishes,
      PakGuide
