NS Defaulter Overseas & wanting to Extend/Renew SG Passp

Post by smexxymaxxie » Fri, 12 Nov 2010 3:08 pm

Hi, I am a Singapore citizen holding an Australian PR & currently living in Australia.
Just wondering whether it would be possible to extend/renew my Singapore passport since I am an NS Defaulter.

I know that I could try to renew my SG Passport in the Singaporean Embassy in Canberra, but wouldn't that also mean risking arrest/detain by the Singaporean Consulate?

In fact, if you go into the Singapore Consulate, you are on Singapore soil and they may well detain you as you are a deserter and send you back to Singapore to do time. :-k
