    Dear sir,
    My name is Hassan Bashar. I want to ask that My wife name is single and there is no Surname in her academic record, CNIC and Passport. I want to add my name with her name. So what is the precedure fot that? please guide me in details. Thank you

    1. Dear Mr.Hassan Bashar,

      W.Salam … You can add your name with the name of your wife on her CNIC. Please visit NADRA Centre with the following documents:-

      1) Your original CNIC
      2) Your wife’s original CNIC
      3) Nikah-nama in Urdu with photocopy
      4) NADRA’s Marriage Certificate (if you don’t have certificate, no problem)

      However, after adding your name, the name of your wife will be different from her educational record, passport, nikah-nama and many other documents. Although it makes no problem, but sometimes the “difference” of name between CNIC and other documents may create some difficulties. We think, you may decide more better in light of above mentioned points.

      Best regards,

    1. Dear Sir,

      Jab CNIC expire huay ziada time ho jata hay tau renew karwanay kay liay parents ya bhai ko saath lejana parta hay. Aap nay yeh nahi bataya hay keh yeh kisliay nahi hosakta.

      Beherhaal, agar moaamla hal na ho tau NADRA Centre kay kisi senior officer say baat karain. Phir bhi hal na ho tau NADRA Helpline : 051-111-786-100 pay call kijiay aur unko problem bataiyay. Helpline say madad na milay tau NADRA ko inkay link : pay apni shikayat/ complaint darj karwaen. NADRA walay aap ki har mumkin madad karaingay aur guide bhi karaingay.

        Aap address double karwa saktay hain. CNIC pay mustaqil (permanent) address aap kay village ka ho jaega aur mojooda (present) address Karachi ka hojaega.

        Address change karwanay kay liay yeh documents zaroori hain:-

        Agar aap ka makaan rent pay hay :-
        1) Aap ka original CNIC
        2) Original Rent Agreement aur photocopy
        4) Makaan Maalik kay naam pay original Utility Bill aur photocopy
        5) Makaan Maalik kay CNIC ki photocopy
        6) NADRA koi Halaf-nama maangega jis pay makaan maalik aur aap kay sign hon

        Agar makaan aap ki family ka hay :-
        1) Jis family member kay naam pay makaan hay iss ka original CNIC
        2) Original property documents (NADRA sirf 3-pages ki photocopy lega)
        3) Property maalik kay naam pay original Utility Bill aur photocopy
        4) Jab ek family member ka address change hojaega tau phir aap ka bhi aasani say change hojaega

        Aap yeh documents lay kar NADRA tashreef lay jaen. Woh log aap ko mukammal guide karaingay aur aap ka kaam aasaan hojaega.


  3. Sir Guid kr dy plz mane online renew k lye applay krna tha but by mistake online modify kr diya and ab application submission complete hogae h with fee to kia ye application cancel ho skti plz tell me

    1. Dear Mr.Kazim Hussain,

      Aap nay “renew” ki jagah “modify” kar diya, lekin kiya modify karna hay woh nahi likha (maslan change of signature, address change, date of birth ki tabdeeli waghera). Isliay ho sakta hay NADRA walay “renew” kar kay hi CNIC bhej dain.

      Online application tau shaayad hi cancel ho, lekin choonkeh fees bhi pay kar di hay tau isliay behtar yehi hay keh aap zaati taur pay NADRA Centre tashreef lay jaen. Aap ka kaam bohot aasani say hojaega aur CNIC renew hojaega, InshaAllah.
