The Consulate-General can assist you to forward your application for renewal or transfer of Re-Entry Permit (REP) to the Singapore Immigration & Checkpoints Authority (ICA), which is the processing authority.
Alternatively, Singapore Permanent Residents (SPRs) can apply, renew or transfer their REP online through an e-application Electronic Re-Entry Permit System (e-REP) available at ICA’s website (http://www.ica.gov.sg) with a SingPass account before the expiry date of their current REP. The applications can be processed within one day if the applicants are in Singapore. For SPRs who are currently not in Singapore, the outcome of the applications will be made known to the applicants within 5 working days. For more details on application for SingPass, please visit http://www.singpass.gov.sg.
Please note that with the introduction of e-REP, ICA will cease the practice of stamping the REP in the passport. Instead, an electronic Re-Entry Permit (Form 7) will be issued.
If you wish to submit your application through the Consulate-General, please appear in person with the application documents. You can visit ICA's website to access information on the REP renewal procedure.

Tel: +(86) 28 8652 7222

For renewal, please submit your application at least 2 months before the expiry of the REP. A SPR who remains outside Singapore without a valid REP will lose his/her PR status.
Please keep the REP carefully. You are advised to carry a copy of your REP with you when you travel overseas as some foreign authorities and agencies may need to see your REP when you travel. Travellers who do not have a hard copy of their REP may be denied exit by the local immigration of some countries. Do not glue or staple your REP to the Travel Document.
