Thank you everyone who has posted questions related to problems they face while renouncing Malaysian Citizenship, as well as getting their Singapore IC and certificate, during this COVID-19 period. And many thanks to all readers who actively tried to help one another out, your generosity in sharing your knowledge and experience, I believe, will be greatly appreciated by all whom you have lent a helping hand.
After reading this post, I hope that you have a clearer picture of:
(1) How to collect Singapore NRIC
(2) How to obtain certified true copy of Singapore Citizenship Certificate
(3) How to collect Form K (final renunciation letter) & Birth Certificate
(1) Collection of Singapore Identity Card (NRIC)
Thank you one of the readers who updated me that she has emailed ICA to check on the collection of her NRIC. I followed her footsteps and emailed ICA (ICA_Citizenship_Unit@ica.gov.sg).
I received a reply a few days later saying that I have been granted permission* to enter ICA Building on a certain date to collect my NRIC while collection of Singapore Citizenship Certificate will be advised on a later date.
*Some readers received their NRIC via snail mail even before the general election.
The entire collection process took about 30 minutes. Asked about the Singapore Citizenship Certificate and they told me that it can only be collected during the ceremony which we will be informed on a later date.
(2) Certified true copy of Singapore Citizenship Certificate
For those who need a certified true copy of Singapore Citizenship Certificate for the collection of Form K (final renunciation letter) at MHC, you just have to write to ICA (ICA_Citizenship_Unit@ica.gov.sg) and request the soft copy of it via email. MHC does not require the original citizenship certificate.
(3) Collection of Form K (final renunciation letter) & Birth Certificate
I have received a letter stating that my application for renunciation of Malaysian Citizenship has been approved. Also, I have to personally go down to the Consular Section of MHC between 2.30pm to 4pm, Monday to Friday, to collect both Form ‘K’ and my birth certificate.
I have to bring along the following documents (Original and two photocopies each in A4 size paper):
i) Singapore IC or 11B Card (photocopy front and back of the document)
ii) Singapore Passport (bio-data page only)
iii) Singapore Citizenship Certificate (photocopy front & back of the document)
iv) Deed poll / Baptism (if name has been changed / if applicable)
Collection has to be done within three months from the date of the letter (booking of appointment is NOT needed).
