  2. As Salam alaikum! thank you for this informative platform. My cnic will expire in July, so I am trying to get it renewed right now only, however, in online form, i do not know how to update my new address info. I live in DHA (Karachi) now, but it is not showing DHA Karachi anywhere. Please guide, I have searched “Karachi South” multiple times, but couldn’t find DHA.

    1. Ms.Sidra,

      W.Salam. Please search DHA-Karachi into Karachi Cantonment areas. DHA may not be falling into Karachi-South. Actually, ambiguity of areas falling into different Districts makes it difficult to search our area of residence.

      If your problem is not being resolved, please contact NADRA’s Help Line: 051-111-786-100. Even then, if there is no result, please lodge your complaint on NADRA’s link:

      In case, you are presently in the country, please avoid this confusion and visit personally your nearest NADRA Centre with your original CNIC. You will get very easily renewed your CNIC with new address.

    1. Ms. Ammara,

      If you are in country now, then please visit NADRA Centre with only your original CNIC. You will get renewed your CNIC very easily.

      But, if you are out of country, then please try again and again. Even then, your problem is not resolved, please contact on NADRA’s Help Line: 051-111-786-100.

      In case, problem is not resolved, please lodge a complaint on NADRA’s link:


  4. mera CNIC expire horha hai kia mujhy apny blood relatives ke sath jana paryga nadra ke headoffice? agar yes to aesa q hai ? me kesy unko itni lambi lines me lagwaun?

    1. Dear Mr.Feroz,

  5. Sir,
    I need to know that my CNIC card is expired . Should I need to renew my card before getting nikkah-fied or I can attach my expired copy of cnic and then after nikkah I can request to issue new card ? Kindly let me know.

    1. Ms.Farhat,

      Af far as we know, on nikkah ceremony, the Nikkah-khwan maulvi sahib will accept your CNIC’s expired copy to attach with nikkah-nama record. However, a second-opinion may please be taken from groom’s nikkah-khwan. After nikkah, you can get renewed your CNIC with husband’s name and his address.

      On the other hand, you can get renewed CNIC before nikkah by paying an urgent fee. Following is a detail of renewal fees:-
      Normal Fee: Rs.400 (receive card within 30 days)
      Urgent Fee: Rs.1150 (receive card within 15 days)
      Executive Fee: Rs.2150 (receive card within 7 days)

      In light of above detail, you can decide what you feel more comfortable.


        1. Dear Mr.Usama,

          Aap Pakistan main kisi bhi jagah CNIC ko iss link pay online renew karwa saktay hain:-

          Online agar mushkil lagay tau phir KPK main NADRA Centre jaen. Ziada imkaan yehi hay keh woh renew kar daingay isliay keh aap ka KPK ka address bhi mojood hoga.
