British Citizens Abroad

If you are a British citizen but do not currently reside in the United Kingdom, you can apply to change your name by Deed Poll. You can change any part of your name as many times as you wish to so long as you are not doing so for fraudulent purposes.

If you intend to change the name on your passport we advise that you first contact you local British Embassy to ensure that there are no special requirements that must be met before they will change your British Passport. In the majority of countries there are no problems but there are some that insist that the execution (signing) of your Deed Poll is witnessed by a solicitor.

When you receive your Deed Poll document you must sign it and have the signing witnessed. You can then start sending it off to various organisations to notify them of your name change. The Deed Poll will be accepted by all departments as proof of your change of name and they can update their records to show your new name.

  1. Fill in our online application form
  2. Receive your Deed Poll in the post
  3. Sign and date your Deed Poll
  4. Update records into your new name

What Our Clients Say...

Have to say that I was impressed with the service I received.

In my case, I contacted you because I wasn't sure if I needed to make a name change, and, given past experience with Govt agencies, I was dreading the call as I thought everything would be complicated!

The operator who took my call explained really clearly and succinctly what my options were, and how each option worked - even though the deed poll change was only one option! Having decided that I'd go through with the application, she then talked me through exactly what I needed to do, and what would happen at each stage. She was very reassuring, and I felt at ease to ask any questions I had, even though some were very simple and should have been obvious!!

The whole process was very quick - I was sceptical about the speed of service I'd been promised, but the forms actually arrived quicker than your operator had stated! I was also pleasantly surprised with the cost - I had expected the cost to be quite high, again given experience with fees for things such as passport change, drivers licence etc.

I'd be happy to recommend the service.
