Your child will not get Singapore citizenship.

One main condition, the parent MUST be LEGALLY married.

Read this http://www.ica.gov.sg/page.aspx?pageid= ... rseasbirth

An overseas-born minor (child) may be eligible for Singapore Citizenship by Descent under Article 122(1) of the Constitution of the Republic of Singapore, if his/her parents meet any of the following conditions:

Male Singapore citizen by Birth who has a lawful marriage at time of minor's birth

Male Singapore citizen by Registration who has a lawful marriage at time of minor's birth and minor does not acquire citizenship of the country he was born by reason of his birth in that country

Female Singapore citizen by Birth and minor born on or after 15 May 2004

Female Singapore citizen by Registration and minor born on or after 15 May 2004. Minor shall not acquire citizenship of the country he was born by reason of his birth in that country

Male (who has a lawful marriage at time of minor's birth) or Female Singapore citizen by Descent has to declare their residence period in Singapore. The application can only be accepted if the parent fulfils the requirements stipulated in the Annex.

Ask MP also useless.

MP will ask if you applied first ... if not, he will ask you to apply first ... before going back to him.....

And even then MP can add not much value if your case is hopeless .. been there, seen enough ...
