      Aap original CNIC kay saath NADRA Centre tashreef lay jaen tau CNIC renew hojaega. Lekin agar aap CNIC ki jagah SNIC (Smart NIC) banwana chahti hain tau kisi blood-relative (father/ mother/ brother/ sister) ko saath lejana hoga. SNIC ki fees Rs.750 hay.


  2. hello, PakGuide.
    i have problem regarding my CNIC, my surname is missing from the CNIC and i also wanted to change my signature, however it been 2/3 years for holding this CNIC card and working with it, which caused misplaced surname on passport too how can i resolve that.

    Thank you

    1. Hi,

      You can apply both for adding your surname on your CNIC and the change of your signature. You may please also keep in mind that the addition of your surname in CNIC will make difference with the name on your educational certificates. However, after adding the surname on CNIC, you can have your name on passport together with surname.
