Singapore Citizenship Application

Electronic Singapore Citizenship Application (e-SC)

SingPass account is required for online application. For more information and procedures on e-SC application, please refer to https://esc.ica.gov.sg/esc

Once the application has been finalised, you or your local representative will be required to bring along the applicant’s original Birth Certificate and other required documents to the Immigration & Checkpoints Authority (ICA) for verification. Alternatively, the applicant may wish to approach the Embassy to endorse and certify copies of the required documents.
If the applicant does not have a local contact person, the application can be submitted through the nearest Singapore Embassy.

Application at the Embassy

For information on the criteria and the application forms, please refer to ICA's website at www.ica.gov.sg/apply/citizenship/apply_citizenship_who

The application form is also available at the Embassy.

Important Notes for Newborn Citizenship Application

  1. If a child is born overseas (e.g. Japan) and either parent is a Singapore citizen by descent or registration, the parents may submit an application for Singapore Citizenship for the child to ICA or the Singapore Embassy in Tokyo. For more information, please refer to https://www.ica.gov.sg/citizen/overseas/birth/citizen_overseas_birth_childbornoverseas

  2. The application has to be submitted by the parents before the child's first birthday. A letter of explanation and additional documents are required for late submissions. The parents must be legally married at the time of the child's birth.

  3. The citizenship status of your child should be treated as an important matter. If in doubt, parents should seek advice from ICA before the citizenship application.

  4. A child aged 15 years and below will be required to obtain his or her own passport. The parents need to first apply for Singapore Citizenship for their child, if the child is not yet a Singapore citizen. Upon the approval of the application, the child will be formally registered as a Singapore citizen. Only then will the child be eligible for a Singapore Passport.

  5. Under the Enlistment Act, all male Singapore Citizens are liable for National Service (NS) unless exempted.
