Application of Passport online (using a credit-card)

Apply/Renew Singapore Passports via Internet (using a credit-card)

From 2 May 2002 Singapore citizens may use the internet to apply or renew their passports. The Application for Passport Online Electronic System - or APPLES - allows citizens to submit applications and make payment online. They can even send in the photographs for their passports electronically.

APPLES is introduced to enhance service standards and aims to give applicants greater flexibility and convenience.

To apply using APPLES, a user must have on hand his identity-card number, its date of issue, his date of birth and the expiry date of his current passport. APPLES will guide the user through every step of filling up the electronic passport-application form.

Payment must be made via credit card. The online registration fee for renewing or applying for a passport is $70. This is $10 cheaper than for applications made using paper forms.

The user must also attach a digital photograph to the online application form. It must be in colour, be taken against a plain white background, and have a file size of less than 40 kbytes.

When his passport is ready, an applicant has to arrange collection in person so that Immigration/Consular officers can verify his identity before issuing the passport. Old passports will have to be presented for cancellation.

In Singapore an applicant may collect his new passport after three working days. For overseas applicants, the processing time is about three weeks, and collections can be made at the nearest Singapore missions overseas. Please contact the mission to arrange collection of the passports.
