Advise needed for newborn baby

Postby nox1982 » Fri, 21 Nov 2014 2:57 pm

Hi, would like to seek some advice on the options available.

My wife had just given birth to our first baby 2 weeks ago. Both of us are Malaysian PR at the time of my child birth.

I have registered my baby birth with ICA and in the process of getting the Malaysia passport for him.

In the meantime, I've gotten the approval letter on my citizenship application and will be completing the process in weeks time.

What is the option for me to proceed to get my baby SG citizenship as my initial plan is to get him registered as SG citizen upon birth but due to early delivery everything is in the another way round now.

Thanks.

Congrats on your citizenship approval ! You will be able to apply for citizenship for your baby only after you have completed your citizenship formalities.

For the citizenship application for the baby, after your citizenship you can refer to

http://www.ica.gov.sg/page.aspx?pageid=132 (Section :For children of Singapore citizen(s) by registration)

Good Luck !

You need to check with ICA on this. When they issued the birth certificate did they tell you on within how many days you should get the LTVP for your baby?

You surely need to apply for LTVP before applying for PR or Citizenship

Hi, i'm also a malaysian. I submitted my application as a family end of July 14. May i know how long have you waited for the result? Did you applied together with your wife or only for yourself?
