Important Issues on Deed Poll

Minor Change of Name

Change of Name for a Child Below the Age of 21 Years. From 1 June 2007, to effect a change of name of a minor, the Immigration & Checkpoints Authority of Singapore (ICA) requires one parent to complete a form to declare that the minor’s other parent has also consented to the name change, in addition to producing the Deed Poll. If the other parent is uncontactable or has died, the parent who has signed the Deed Poll must state this information on the Declaration Form accordingly.
