Civil ID Arabic name change

Posted by civil id arabic name change on 4/20/2019 1:16:08 am

hello, i would really appreciate if someone would share their experience or help guide me on an issue i am facing regarding changing name on civil id. it turns out my arabic name in the system is not the same as on my passport. as a result, paci refused to issue me a civil id and asked me to get a form from the embassy confirming the name. i got the form and then paci gave me a paper to take to fingerprint office. i went and did the fingerprints in mishref and then was told i have to go to moi to change name. i have a govt. residence (art. 17). in jawazat (moi) they issued me a new paper and said to go back to fingerprint office in mishref. i went back and the lady entered it in system and said to go back to jawazat after a week. i''''m kind of confused on what is happening and would really appreciate if someone can lay out the steps needed to complete this. also note besides my arabic name, the english name on old civil id was wrong as well.

KSE online submission

Posted by arif on 4/16/2019 5:06:34 pm

hello everyone,
i recently registered in kse and got interview as my residence was going to finish in coming months. i thought i would explain the steps and issues i faced during online registration and submission.
open website create a login id and password.
once you login, click on submission option in the website and fill the details as asked in the webpage. be careful about the below entries:
- while filling the name just enter your name as in the civil id and also enter the arabic name correctly as it will create issues later.
- in the “university list”, if your college name is not there, you can select your university [in my case – kerala university” and you can give your college name in “english faculty name” option below.
- there is an option “english sub profession name” which didn’t work for me because of which i couldn’t submit the application in the first time. so i had to go to kse and enquire. but this is actually a bug in the website. in order to fix this issue, the option above “arabic profession name” must be filled first and then only “english profession name”. if you fill “english profession name” first, the bug will still remain.
- no need to enter the “company details”. you can leave it blank.
- in revision date option, you must select a date to get appointment for document submission. you can select a date and if its showing some warning in red color in arabic, you must select another date until the warning comes in green color.
- attach all the required documents like civil id, passport copies – front and back, residence page, work permit, degree certificate, all mark sheets, transfer certificate or conduct certificate from college.
transfer certificate or conduct certificate is to prove your college name as in my degree certificate only university name is mentioned [kerala university]
all documents must in png format or else it would not upload.
- once all documents are attached, you can save the submission.
