Dear Uganda Registration Services Bureau (URSB),
I would like to know the whole process and fees that will be required for me to change one of my name. The reason why am changing the Surname because of the history it has. Am being offended by the so called grands about it yet they were alive and understanding by the time I was given the name.
So I would like to be guided on what to do and the fees it will cost. I want to change it next year 2023.

Yours faithfully,
Yawe Joseph Mulimira

Provia Nangobi, Uganda Registration Services Bureau (URSB)

Dear Joseph,

With URSB, you are expected to register a deed poll for change of name, that costs 50,000/=.
Here after, you will be required to gazette the new name which service is provided by UPPC in the Uganda Gazette (cost is determined by them)
Then you apply for a new National ID from NIRA (cost is also determined by them.

You can come to our offices located on Level 1 of Georgian House/formerly Amamu House.
