Alright, after renunciation of my previous citizenship, and collecting the renunciation letter from Malaysia High Commission, I headed to Singapore ICA to register for Singapore Citizenship a few days later.
- Take new passport size photographs beforehand because they won’t accept the photographs you’ve submitted during application process.
- Reason being, photos must be taken within the past three months.
- Best to take it at a shop where they will ensure the photograph will be accepted by ICA.
- Scan your IC/Approval Letter at the entrance kiosk for a queue ticket.
- Wait for your turn near Room 19-25.
- Submit documents and photographs.
- Renunciation Letter (all A4 papers which you received from Malaysia High Comission with two photocopies of them.)
- Approval Letter from ICA
- Make payment of SGD80 via NETS.
- Wait for your queue number to be called again for oath taking.
- Once you are done with oath taking, you have basically completed the registration process.
- However, you are reminded to scan the Renunciation Approval Letter/Email (Borang K), which will be mailed to you from Malaysia, to ICA email. This step helps Singapore to ensure that your renunciation of previous citizenship is successful.
- You will then be permitted to apply for Singaporean passport one day later after oath-taking.
- Wait for letter/email to attend Citizenship Ceremony to collect your Singapore NRIC.
Done, you are ready to sing the Singapore national anthem now.
