  1. Sir i have lost my id card i want to apply for duplicate ..but now i want to apply for smart card and change my father name to husband name…also is it possible to attach my husband name with my name ???plz guaid me

    1. Ms.Haya Khan,

      There is no need of FIR for your lost CNIC. You can apply for smart card (SNIC) and replace father’s name with your husband’s name.

      It is possible to attach your husband’s name with your name. Then, your name (attached with husband’s name) will be different from your name on your educational certificates, etc. If you will visit abroad for any personal need or any job, sometimes there may be some problems because of difference in your name. However, you can decide more better that which thing is in your interest.

      For all the above purposes, please visit nearest NADRA Centre with your husband having the following documents:-
      (1) Your CNIC’s photocopy or its number
      (2) Your husband’s original CNIC
      (3) Original and photocopy of Urdu Nikahnama
      (4) NADRA’s Marriage Registration Certificate (if available)

      If NADRA will need any other document, they will tell you and you will get a new SNIC soon.

  6. Aoa, I have applied for NICOP. But the thing is my name in urdu spells wrong as it was automatically written there when I put my English name. How can I change my urdu spells on card? It’s just the matter of one haroof that is ہ my name starts with this ہ but due to automatically digital system my name was written with this ح is there any possibility so I can change my urdu harf? Kindly guide me.

    1. Dear Mr.Huzaira,

      W.Salam.
      During the use of online application, there should be our choice to write our own name in Urdu with the spelling we desire, as we are allowed to write our name in English. Problem arises when our name in Urdu appears automatically.

      However, this problem can only be solved by NADRA people, because they are handling this system. Please contact them on NADRA’s Helpline 051-111-786-100 . If problem is not solved, NADRA’s link https://complaints.nadra.gov.pk/ will definitely help you and they will give attention to your complaint, InshaAllah.

      There is no requirement of FIR by NADRA. Please visit NADRA Centre. In view of old age (77) of your mother, it is possible that NADRA may issue your mother’s duplicate CNIC, or they will properly guide you to make duplicate CNIC. Getting online CNIC is rather difficult.

          2) If she has her passport, she can find CNIC No. on it
          3) If she has any property in her name, CNIC No. is in property documents
          4) You can go NADRA Centre with your original CNIC. Also take wife with you and request the NADRA Officer to trace out your wife’s CNIC number through the “home address” given on her CNIC, or date of birth, etc.

    He referred me to another and my attestation form has deposited over there for scanning.
    Now pls tell me Do i need to collect again that form after scanning for the attestation/Blood relation biomatric process or they skipped this step in the favour of my case. Thanks

    1. Dear Mr.Raja Asim,

      It is possible that they have skipped some steps. After asking some questions/ interrogation from you, if NADRA’s staff is satisfied and thinks your form fulfils their requirements, they will issue a duplicate/new CNIC to you. Now, you just have to visit NADRA Centre on the date mentioned on their receipt/token and you will get a new CNIC.

    1. Dear Mr.Amir,

      It is good that now the NADRA is not demanding FIR for the lost CNIC. Your new CNIC will have a new “Date of Issue.” From this new Date of Issue, your previous CNIC will have no value and if anybody misuses your previous CNIC, you can easily challenge it. Let we hope that nothing will happen wrong with your previous CNIC, InshaAllah.

    i lost my NIC a day before yesterday ,
    i visited nadra today for duplicate (Reprint) CNIC , they did not required any FIR but they said your old card cannot be reprinted , it ll be issued as a new (taking fresh pictures and fingerprints) , I don’t want to take new card but to reprint my old card and i am uncomfortable making new one as old one was having validity till 2027 also.
    the person there also does not seem very professional,
    please if there is any way i can get it reprint .please let me know. or i should visit another branch ? How do you say please. .

    1. Dear Mr.Khawar,

      W.A.S.
      Generally NADRA requires FIR for issuance of duplicate CNIC. If you think the staff who attended you was not professionally competitive, please try any other centre of NADRA.

      Actually, institutions like NADRA improve themselves day by day. If they have changed their policy for issuance of Duplicate (Reprint) CNIC, we have to follow it. Perhaps, it is in your own interest because you will have latest “Date of Issue” on your new CNIC. Also, please don’t be uncomfortable about validity which is upto 2027. Your new CNIC’s validity will definitely be upto 2027 or 2028. In case you are issued a new and fresh CNIC, no fraud or illegal activity will be possible by any wrong person.

      In view of above arguments, we hope you will have a good decision about this issue.

      It is the requirement of NADRA to submit photocopy of FIR for issuance of Duplicate (Reprint) CNIC. If you feel uncomfortable about FIR, you may please contact NADRA for issuance of Duplicate CNIC. They will help you if they have some other ways for Duplicate.

      Otherwise, if NADRA insists for FIR, there is no problem for you to get registered FIR. Please go, with your father, brother or any close-relative, to Police Station nearest to your previous residence. After completing NADRA’s requirement, you will get very soon the Duplicate CNIC.

            Now, the FIR is not necessary for the lost CNIC. Please visit NADRA Centre with CNIC’s photocopy or its number. The NADRA will issue duplicate / reprint of your CNIC within 30 days.

      1. So I lost my CNIC, I do have the FIR but I don’t have a copy of my CNIC (I do have pictures of it on my phone).
        And also I called the Nadra helpline today and they told me that I would have to bring a blood relative along with me to get a new CNIC but the representative seemed unsure to be honest, could you please confirm?
        Thank you!

        1. Dear Mr.Bilal Shahid,

          Your case is simple and please do not worry. Forget the representative of NADRA who talked to you on helpline. You must go directly to any NADRA Centre with your original FIR and its photocopy. Also take with you the mobile phone. Show the FIR to them and also show the photo of your CNIC in the mobile. They will take your CNIC Number from the photo.

          It is possible that they will make your fresh CNIC. If NADRA officer demands you to bring any blood-relative, then please bring with you father, mother, brother, sister or any other blood-relative. Mostly chances are that they will not ask any blood-relative.

          Best regards.

  31. I am separated from my husband, and we are not in contact with each other, and he has my new CNIC, and I don’t have any copy of it, even I don’t know my CNIC number, so my question is, how can I get my CNIC or a duplicate copy of it from Nadra centre? What is the procedure for it?

    1. Ms.Kiran,

      CNIC number of a person always remains the same. There may be many ways to find your CNIC number. However, please note the following points for this purpose:-

      1) If you have your old or previous CNIC or its photocopy, you can get your CNIC number.
      2) Please see your Urdu Nikahnama or NADRA’s Marriage Registration Certificate (Nikahnama in English).
      3) With your father / mother / any sibling or any blood-relative, you can go NADRA and request them to tell your CNIC number, so that you could lodge an FIR for your lost CNIC.

      NADRA Office tells you CNIC number or not, you just lodge an FIR for your lost CNIC. Show this FIR to NADRA Office and also give them its photocopy. InshaAllah they will issue a Duplicate CNIC to you.

      Wishing you all the best,

    1. Walaykum Assalam.
      There may be following ways to search your Aunt’s CNIC number:-

      1) If aunt has B-Form of her children, find her CNIC No. in B-Form.
      2) If aunt has her passport, she can find CNIC No. on it.
      3) If aunt has any property in her name, CNIC No. is in prop.documents.
      4) Aunt’s any blood-relative or husband can go NADRA Centre and request them to trace out Aunt’s CNIC number through the “home address” given on Aunt’s CNIC, or date of birth or husband’s name on Aunt’s CNIC.

    2. My uncle lost his id card and he lives in Greece. How can he apply his new id card or reprint.

      Please give me all information.

      Thank you

      1. Dear Sir,

        In some cases, NADRA has online system for overseas Pakistanis through the following link:-
        https://id.nadra.gov.pk/

        But, it would be reasonable if you please contact any NADRA Centre, as the representative of Uncle, and request them for issuance of Duplicate CNIC against Uncle’s lost CNIC. Possibly they may ask an FIR for the lost CNIC. NADRA has a vast data system and will provide you to the point guidance.

  35. I have lost my cnic what will be the status of my lost cnic if I make duplicate cnic??
    can anybody miss misuse it?
    can anybody misuse it??

    1. Dear Mr.Shah,

      Your lost CNIC can be misused, but chances of misuse are very low, because now-a-days “fingerprints” are mostly required and therefore misuse of CNIC becomes very difficult. After the Issue Date of your Duplicate CNIC, you are not responsible for any transaction of old (lost) CNIC.
