Formal diplomatic relations between the Republic of Singapore and the Republic of Indonesia were established on 7 September 1967, through a Joint Communique signed by then-Singapore Foreign Minister S Rajaratnam and then-Indonesian Foreign Minister Adam Malik. Prior to this, a Singapore Liaison Office had operated in Jakarta since December 1966.

Following both countries’ agreement to establish formal diplomatic relations at the Ambassadorial level, Mr Ridzwan Dzafir, the then-Singapore Liaison Officer in Jakarta, was appointed Chargé d’Affaires of the Singapore Embassy in Jakarta. In 1968, Mr P S Raman was appointed Singapore’s first Ambassador to Indonesia.

At present, there are officers from several Singapore agencies at the Embassy, reflecting the breadth and depth of the bilateral relationship.  These include the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ministry of Defence/Singapore Armed Forces, Ministry of Home Affairs/Singapore Police Force, Ministry of Trade and Industry, Economic Development Board, and International Enterprise Singapore.
The current Ambassador, Mr Anil Kumar Nayar, assumed post in June 2012.
