My daughter’s dad is not Pakistani and she’s born in the uk. My daughter’s application is deferred until I update my martial status ! I can’t do this without declaring I’m not married

    I got married 2 months earlier.
    We both are in different countries (none of us is in Pakistan)
    For immigration purpose they ask for my FRC that shows my Family Tree not my Fathers.
    My wife still got her Father’s name on her Smart Card.
    She applied online for NICOP but it’s so complicated and lengthy procedure.
    So, my question is can her Father/Brother can go to Nadra and apply for her new Smart Card with my name’s on it? She will sign authority letter.
    We have a computerized marriage certificate but whenever i requested for FRC (by Marriage) it says that you are not eligible.

    Your help and kind comments will be really apprecaited.

    Thank you!

    I have a question I am trying to applying a NICOP for my daughter and while doing the application when I enter my details it says your martial status is not married change your martial status first. My passport has also expired and i am in process of applying for new passport. My question is:
    – Should I fill modified passport application? And by doing that will it also change my status in NADRA data base so i can apply for NICOP for my daughter?
    Please advise thanks!

    Reply
    • Shahrukh Rashid,

      You should apply for martial status change first. Because you are not updated on Nadra’s Database as a married person.

      Also, Passport is consider as separate entity by Nadra. (It won’t change martial status on renew)

      Therefore, when marital status process is done you’ll having no issue for applying for NICOP for daughter.
