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.

What Our Clients Say...

Well I can't believe how quickly and efficiently these were done for my children, having been in a previous marriage, and the father not having contact with the children...

.. a quick telephone call to UKDP and it was done, I got all the information I needed off the lovely lady I spoke to on the phone.

I was amazingly shocked at the shortness of time it took to complete, and receive documents. Also, I got extra copies and just photo copied any others I might have needed.

Thank you so much. I have recommended you to 6 people now, whom I know will have the same experience as me. An Excellent Service assured!!
