Apply for Singapore Citizenship

4. Single

Hi Guys,

Need some advices on National Service (NS) if I convert to Singapore Citizenship.

I understand that First Generation applicant for PR is exempted from NS, however there is no clear information in regard to First Generation applicant for "converting" to Sg Citizenship will be exempted from NS.

So, if apply now, do I need to go for NS?

No. You need not do NS.

Thanks for the information. Is that over certain age you will be waived from NS?

That's not a given, some people may be put through NS- but the circumstances are different.

I gave that answer based on a complicated algorithm I use to work out answers :D

To simplify the answer, do research here on past posts. Or maybe somebody may explain in detail, too detailed ...
