Foreign Nationals

Foreign nationals living in the United Kingdom can change their name by Deed Poll. This will be accepted as evidence of your name change and you will be able to have records changed into your new name.   

Before applying for a Deed Poll you should check with your country's high commission or embassy in London to see if a change of name by Deed Poll will be accepted to get your passport changed.  Some foreign embassies require their nationals to have a solicitor witness the signing of their Deed Poll in order for it to be accepted. If you are unable to get your passport changed it is inadvisable to proceed with a change of name by Deed Poll as the change of name must apply to ‘all purposes'. Continuing to get records changed into your new name with other organisations could lead to problems on these grounds.

Asylum seekers living in the United Kingdom

Asylum seekers living in the United Kingdom can apply for a Deed Poll which will allow them to get all documents and records changed into their new name. When filling in the application form, your nationality should be entered in the relevant section. Once executed, your Deed Poll will be accepted as proof of your name change by all organisations and departments. Their records of you will then be updated to show your new name.

Living abroad

If you are living outside the United Kingdom and are not a British citizen a Deed Poll issued by ourselves is unlikely to be accepted. If you would like to have your name changed on your passport you should make inquires about how to do so with a local government department, as the law differs greatly from country to country.

What Our Clients Say...

I didn't know your website existed so am pleased it came up when I googled a question about changing my name.

The process was so easy with very clear instructions. So much so that, one minute I was asking google a question and the next, my name was changed. Wow! Thank you.

There was even advice on who needed to be contacted following the name change. So impressive. The only comment I can give is, I didn't spot anywhere that told me I needed to get the deed signed and witnessed once I received it. I might have missed that if it's there though.

All in all, great service, so easy, no messing, brilliant!
