I'm afraid I don't. I know there is a problem that Singapore has with Indonesia regarding dual citizenship and military service in Singapore. I believe it still stands that if a male PR does NS (as required by accepting PR) he can lose his Indonesian citizenship. This has been an ongoing problem for sometime but I don't think it's ever been resolved.BBCWatcher wrote:SMS, do you know if Singapore has any treaties (or even treaties the U.K. signed that remain in force, as extradition treaties did) that exempt certain dual nationals and non-citizens from NS? I doubt it, but some countries have such arrangements. The U.S. does, for example.
Serious mental and/or physical disability(ies) can result in a NS exemption or deferment, but the enlistee still needs to go through an exam to verify that. I don't recommend acquiring a serious mental or physical disability.
I know that if you are a conscientious objector in the US, it doesn't make a hill of beans here if you are required to serve NS. However, I don't see how the two could be linked today with no 'conscription' what with the draft being mothballed. But I could see it happening if one got out of the draft as a CO and came to Singapore after that as a PR under his parents (say at 18.5 years of age - still below the age of majority in Singapore). I'm afraid he would have to do NS here.
Oh, the link behind "U.S. does" does not work as it's behind a secure https:// Apparently you are a logged in person, so us laymen cannot access it.
