A person can change his name by making a declaration. Such a declaration (commonly referred to as a Deed Poll) is signed sealed and delivered by the person wishing to change his name. Where the name to be changed is that of a minor child the declaration is made on the minor’s behalf by both of the parents. The Deed Poll is required by the Singapore Immigration and Registration as evidence of change of name for the issue of a new identity card. The birth certificate however cannot be amended to the new name.
