Additional Notes for DOI Applicants
Upon issuance of the DOI, you are required to apply for an Exit Permit from the Entry-Exit Administration Bureau. You may be required to prove that you had registered with a hotel or a local police station when you first arrived in China. This is to facilitate investigation by the Entry-Exit Administration Bureau before they may issue you with the Exit Permit to leave China. The processing time to obtain the Exit Permit for foreigners who had lost their passports in China is 7 working days.
Upon your return to Singapore, you will need to surrender the DOI at the checkpoint and apply for a new passport.
