Deed Poll

Changing your name in Singapore

Changing your name in Singapore is a relatively straightforward process via a legal document known as a deed poll. We have simplified this process by providing an online deed poll submission form. You simply complete this form, attend one of our offices to sign the document in the presence of a lawyer, and then submit the completed deed poll document to the ICA at Kallang.

If you can find a cheaper, more efficient deed poll service in Singapore, please let us know.

The deed poll is required before the authorities (for example the Immigration & Checkpoints Authority) will update your records and process your change of name. If you’re not sure about the process or what can / cannot be changed, you may wish to contact us initially to confirm.

You may wish to review a number of FAQs further down in this page.

I'll give a 10 out of 5 stars. Applied for a deed poll at 9am and got it at 1pm on the same day! Thank you for your speed and efficiency.
