(The best way to read the following instructions? Numbers represent steps to be taken in order while alphabets represent the number of documents needed.)

  1. When you receive the ICA Approval Letter which states that you are at the Final Stage, you may continue to read.
  2. Before heading to the Malaysia High Commission, please read this document carefully:

    Documents to be submitted
  3. a) Borang K (Yellow Form / Form K):
    Borang K page 1
    Borang K
  4. IMG_1654
    Form K (first page) [translated]

    IMG_1655
    Form K (second page) [translated]
  5. Nearly fainted when I saw the Malay words, so here is the translated version to save your time! Print it out, fill up once at home so that you can bring down and copy on the spot. They won’t accept your printed copy because they have their YELLOW version of the form.
  6. b) Form (MYRN1):
    Print the first page will do, fill up once at home so that you can bring down and copy on the spot. The form that they gave me only had the first page. I guess they finally realise knowing so much about you is useless since you are no longer their citizen. They may update the form so your printed copy may once again not be accepted.
  7. c) ICA Letter of Approval:
    The one stating that you are at the FINAL stage.
    Original + 2 photocopies (although they only took one of mine…)
  8. d) Malaysian IC: Original + 2 photocopies
  9. e) Singapore IC: Original + 2 photocopies
  10. f) Birth Certificate: Original + 2 photocopies (If you were born in Singapore, please read “Documents to be submitted” carefully.)
  11. g) If you were born before 31 Aug 1957, will require your Malaysian Citizenship Certificate: Original + 2 photocopies
  12. h) Singapore Citizenship Certificate & Passport: Original + 2 photocopies (If you don’t have it’s perfectly fine because I didn’t too. Was so confused but I guess the order of application wasn’t the same for everyone.)
  13. i) Malaysian International Passport: Original
  14. j) THREE recent passport-size photos with white background: Would suggest just get this done at the ID photo booth located in the Malaysia High Commission. $8 for 4 photos. Well, this photograph will not appear in your IC or your passport, it’s alright even if you look terrible. [Photo-taking Service at MHC has temporarily ceased due to COVID-19 situation, please prepare your photos before heading to MHC for renunciation. (Updated as of 10 July 2020)]
  15. k) $10 cash for registration fee.
  16. Make your way to the Malaysia High Commission (Mon-Fri, 8.15am – 11.30am). It’s a long walk from even the nearest bus stop, might want to consider taking a grab ride over. If you want to save money, use Google Map. The nearest MRT station is Redhill. Take bus 32/64 over.
  17. At the guardhouse, use one of your cards with your NRIC/Name to exchange for a pass to enter.
  18. Go to Consular Section. There will be person sitting near the entrance where the whole world will ask him questions. Tell him you are renouncing your citizenship, he will pass you a fake Form K and Form MY-RN1. The fake Form K is to ensure that you have filled the blanks up correctly before they waste their precious YELLOW Form K on you. Remember to write everything in BLOCK LETTERS and with their BLACK PEN (actually it’s just a normal 0.7 black pen…maybe they are afraid you will use a 0.37 red pen so they provided plenty for you)
  19. After filling up whatever the person passed to you, show him/her and he will pass you two YELLOW Form K to fill up AGAIN.
  20. Once you are done filling up forms again, show the same person, he will ask for all your photocopies and clip them together. Next, he will ask you to take a queue ticket on your own.
  21. While waiting for your turn, you can pop over to the ID photo booth nearby to take your photo. Prepare your original Malaysia passport, IC and birth certificate too.
  22. When it is your turn, submit, stand, and they will ask you to wait for your number to be called again for payment.
  23. Make payment and they will give you a slip of paper asking you to return after 3 working days (date will be stamped) between 2.30pm to 4pm to collect your documents.
  24. Swee, get out, collect your card which you have swapped for the visitor pass and you are free to go. Just remember to return on the specified date to collect your documents (usually three working days later)!

When you return to MHC three working days later, you will receive MYRN-1 which will be needed for the registration of Singapore Citizenship at the ICA. Form K, which is the final approval letter, will only be ready for collection 8 months after renunciation. You may visit related posts (links below) for further information.

          And also, “Document to be submitted” to HCM, refer to “Note (V)”, there have stated Borang W, if do not have, do I need to prepare Parents’ document? Birth Certificate must be laminated before submission?

          1. If you’re born in Singapore and don’t have Borang W, as per stated in the required documents, yes photocopies of parents’ documents will be required. If you want to double check, email consular department (email address in the post).

            Yes, birth certificate to be laminated before submission. Actually this requirement is for our sake, you wouldn’t want your birth certificate to be torn upon return.

  8. Hi Pinkolifant

    May I know the Letter of Renunciation which one is to collect 3 working days later for submission to ICA during the registration of citizenship, is there a need to translate this letter from Malay to English? Please advise as I only have one day in between the collection of the Letter of Renunciation and the Registration of Citizenship. If necessary to translate, I will have to change my appointment soon as my collection is just next week. I would appreciate if you could let me know as soon as you read this comment. Many thanks.

  10. Hi All, when we laminate the birth cert, do we need to laminate into an A4 size or should we just follow the original size?
