Deed Poll (Change/Add/Remove of Name)
Cost: S$50 (NETT fixed price)
A person is able to change his name (change Chinese characters, add English name, delete Hanyu Pinyin name, change surname, delete English names) by making a declaration by way of a deed poll, which is signed by the person in front of a lawyer.
For changing children's name (below 21 years old), BOTH PARENTS MUST COME DOWN TO SIGN the deed poll. If you are a single parent, divorced or spouse died, please click on FAQ button below.
Do note we have space constrains due to social distancing measures.
Please do not bring children to the appointment - they are not required for the deed poll even if you are changing their names.
The deed poll is accepted by the ICA for the issue of a new NRIC and/or passport. The birth certificate however cannot be amended to the new name.
