Step 2.  If you have any information to support your request, include this with your application. Make sure you include your address and phone number so OEH can contact you.

Step 3.  Posting or delivering your application to OEH.

What will it cost to change your personal information?

What happens when OEH receives your application?

OEH will inform you within 20 working days of receiving your application about whether or not OEH has decided to change your personal information. If OEH refuses your request, we will explain why.
