A tongue in cheek suggestion I assume, but just in case not, that wouldn't work. Singapore requires (or attempts to require) termination of all other citizenships when becoming a citizen of Singapore. Mexican citizenship cannot be terminated (at least for citizens born in Mexico). Acquisition of another citizenship does not cause termination of Mexican citizenship.PNGMK wrote:You may need to apply for citizenship in another country and surrender that to ICA.
This'll be solely up to the Singaporean government to decide. Mexico simply isn't going to play Singapore's game. Singapore can either have this new Singaporean citizen (Lizziees) who also happens to be a Mexican citizen (in legal fact at least) or not have this new Singaporean citizen -- those are the only two choices Singapore has. So, Lizziees, you just submit the letter from the Mexican embassy (translated) to ICA if you haven't already, and then ICA makes its decision. I can't think of anything else you can do. The "worst" outcome is that you're still a Singapore PR with Mexican citizenship, and that's certainly not bad. That would also mean that it's impossible for a Mexican citizen born in Mexico to acquire Singaporean citizenship -- and for citizens of a few other countries -- unless and until the Singaporean government changes its policy. I suspect the Singaporean government will quietly relent and not allow a foreign government to have effective veto authority over Singapore's citizenship granting decisions, but we'll see.
