Hi thank you for your message, you can use a deed poll to update your documents and records in the U.K., such as your driving licence and your tax records, but to update your documents in your country of origin, you’ll have to follow your own country's procedure.
Thus before applying for a deed poll, you should check with your Embassy or High Commission in the U.K. to see:
if your country of origin will accept your change of nameif they’ll issue you a new passport (or amend your existing passport) to show your new namewhat the procedure is for changing your name in your country of origin, and — if they’ll accept a change of name by deed poll — whether there are any special requirements for a deed poll to be acceptable, for example, that your deed poll needs to be witnessed by a solicitor, or needs to be legalised.
I hope this helps, if you can please accept my answer and rate me 5 stars (in the top right of your screen) then Just Answer will credit me for helping you today.
