The Consulate-General can assist you to forward your application for renewal of Re-Entry Permit (REP) to the Singapore Immigration & Checkpoints Authority (ICA), which is the processing authority.
Singapore Permanent Residents (SPRs) are strongly encouraged by ICA to apply, renew or transfer their REP online for themselves or for their immediate family members through ICA’s e-Service (https://eservices.ica.gov.sg/
Please visit http://www.singpass.gov.sg or email firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance on Singpass, if required.
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 write to us at email@example.com for an appointment. You can visit ICA's website (https://www.ica.gov.sg/
S$50 or RMB 235 (for a 5-year REP)
S$10 or RMB 47 (per year of part thereof)
(Note: Applicants will be required to make multiple trips in person for payments and collection of REP letter if renewing via the Consulate-General)
4 - 6 weeks (via the Consulate-General)
1 week (online via e-REP)
If you need advice or more information, please contact the Immigration & Checkpoints Authority at:
Tel: +(65) 6391 6100
For renewal overseas, 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.
