You can apply for a Singapore passport via the following modes:
The easiest and fastest mode of passport application is via an online submission. You can do so at ICA’s website using your SingPass. You can refer to the 'Overseas Users' FAQs on how you can register for a SingPass account. You may contact SingPass directly if you require assistance.
In-person application / Application via post
You can also submit your passport application in-person at our office or via post. In-person passport application is strictly by appointment only. You can book an appointment here.
The documents required are the same for both modes of application.

For Minor children's application for renewal of passport, please provide:
All applicants must bring or post their photocopies – the photocopies must be of good quality and A4-size. The High Commission does not provide photocopying services to members of public.
Should applicants wish to submit their passport application forms and supporting documents by post, it is recommended to do so via recorded delivery to ensure the safe receipt of their documents.
The application will be forwarded to ICA in Singapore for processing. The average processing time is about 6 to 8 weeks, provided all relevant documents are duly submitted. Incomplete forms and/or supporting documents will result in a delay to the processing time. Please note that the average processing time does not include weekends, Singapore public holidays and UK bank holidays.
Applicants will be notified by post or email when the new passport is ready for collection. Applicants who submit their application via post must collect the passport in person at our office.
Important: For identification and security reasons, applicants are required to turn up in person at the High Commission at least once, either during passport application or collection. The passport is to be collected within 6 months from the date of notification. Passports not collected after 6 months will be returned to ICA for cancellation and no refund of fees will be provided.
Note: The Singapore High Commission is not liable or responsible for any loss or damage of document(s) transmitted through the mail or courier services.
