National Service Obligation

Post by kapear02 » Tue, 19 Feb 2019 7:56 pm

Dear all,

I would appreciate your input in this case. My nephew migrated to Perth, Australia when he was 11/12 years old. During the time of migrating to Perth, he did not applied for an exit permit. He was enrolled in an International School except for the last 3 months in a local school prior to leaving for Perth.

He was not issued with a Singapore IC nor have a Singapore passport. Upon reaching the age of 21 he applied to renounce his Singapore citizenship as he has Japanese citizenship which does not allow dual citizenship. His application was channeled through MINDEF and he was fined $500 for not applying for an exit permit. Having paid the fine he was allowed to renounce his Singapore citizenship successfully.

He is now planning to visit Singapore and is worried of any further consequences upon arrival into Singapore. Would appreciate if you could offer some insight into this case.

Thank you for all your input..Regards Stephen

Does he have any proof he has no NS obligation in writing? I think he's ok myself.
I not lawyer/teacher/CPA.
You've been arrested? Law Society of Singapore can provide referrals.
You want an International School job? School website or http://www.ISS.edu
Your rugrat needs a School? Avoid for profit schools
You need Tax advice? Ask a CPA
You ran away without doing NS? Shame on you!

No he does not have any proof. Not sure whether MINDEF will give this in writing. Thanks for your reply.
