New Passport / Update MOM iSubmit / Travel dilemma

Postby rajagainstthemachine » Wed, 13 Jan 2016 12:35 pm

I have a new passport ( Indian passport). I sent MoM documents via the iSubmit facility on Jan 7th ( about 7 days ago), i got an auto generated mail from them saying "We will process your request by 18 Jan 2016. We will contact you if a longer time or additional information is required"
Now the thing is i need to travel out of Singapore on Jan 15/16.. will I have trouble at the airport? I hope not... 8-[ 8-[ 8-[
To get there early is on time and showing up on time is late

Not at all. Just take your old passport with you and leave/enter the immigration check point through a "human" gate (not the automatic one).

No worry, I've done it before. It is cancelled for use as a passport, not for use as a reference.

I used the human gate, he appeared humane.
My passport is now also active for automated clearances.
