REPORTING LOSS AND REPLACEMENT OF IC
Application for a replacement can only be made personally at the Immigration & Checkpoints Authority (ICA).
if you are overseas, you may defer the replacement of your IC until your return to Singapore, provided you remain a Singapore citizen. Please email ICA at the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org to inform them that you have lost your identity card.
A police report is required only if you are a victim of crime. You can produce an overseas police report or take an oath (in the absence of a police report) at the ICA office in the presence of Commissioner for Oaths regarding the loss of IC, when you visit the ICA Building for replacement. In addition, please produce your original passport(s) to prove your absence from Singapore, one IC photograph in colour and the relevant registration fee.
Once you are back in Singapore, please proceed to ICA at:
Counter 1, IC Section
Citizen Services Centre
3rd Storey, ICA Building
10 Kallang Road
If your lost IC is subsequently found after receiving a replacement, you must return the found IC to ICA.
