Name change after marriage – How to rectify on Civil ID

I’ve changed my passport into my married name then my company changed my civil ID but they made a mistake in my name which is not same as in the passport..I would like to change it but my question is can I do it online or do i have to do it in a different way as my name would be different from my old passport? And they say this would be a problem later in the immigration once I travel.

Name withheld

Answer: The mistake cannot be corrected online and hence you have to visit the residency department of the Directorate-General of Immigration and Passport in your area to effect the necessary correction.
