Apply for / Renew Singapore Passport

For Singaporeans residing in the United States, there are two ways in which one can apply for a new Singapore Passport.

ONLINE APPLICATION

 

You may apply for renewal of passport through APPLES at the ICA website at https://www.psi.gov.sg/NASApp/tmf/TMFServlet?app=MHA-SIR-APPLES&isNew=true&Reload=true.

  1. You will require a digital photo image file and a valid credit card for payment purposes.  The new passport may be collected at the Embassy.  Please ensure that you provide your full US contact details when submitting your application. Please also select 'Washington' as the collection centre. 

  2. There are other collection centres besides Washington.  Please select the centre closest and most convenient to you.

  3. The processing time is approximately two to three weeks.

  4. You will be informed when the new passport is ready for collection at the Embassy and the required documents to bring along with you.  You will need to produce the required documents upon the collection of the new passport in person.  The old passport (if any) will be returned to you upon cancellation.
