Updating marital status during Singapore Citizenship application

Postby eyesyen » Thu, 25 Jan 2018 11:02 pm

Hi All,

I have a pending result of my SC application (E-SC dated 3 Apr 2017; Documents submitted 24 Aug 2017). Me and my boyfriend are planning to get married this year, ROM will be held at Malaysia most likely on Mid March.

How should I submit the documents (eg Marriage Certificate) to ICA?
Does the Marriage Certificate required in English?

Thanks.

Documents need to be in English. You can email them the marriage certificate or walk in and provide this as an additional document for the application

You can ask for Marriage Certificate with dual language from Malaysia's Registrar (JPN). You will have 2 documents both signed and received on the spot. Pay additional MYR 20.

Thanks for your info, this is more convenient for us.
Another thing is regarding the process after SC application approved, how much time needed for the conversion?

My concern is that if I am arranging ROM in Malaysia but at the same time suddenly there is news (I hope is good news) for my SC application, the time will clash and affects my plan.

2 ~ 4 months should be fine for me.
Meanwhile I've just checked with my friend who previously registered at Thean Hou Temple at KL, the marriage certificate is in dual language - Malay and English.
We are going to register at the same place, so meaning that I can submit this copy directly? Or it needs to be in pure english version?

The dual language version can be used by ICA. In fact i have asked several times for PR application, Malaysian documents in Malay language can actually be used without translation (but this in unofficial though) written all over in ICA website that we need to translate. I have even spent few hundred dollars SGD just to translate those docs.

Why don't you ROM in Singapore and bring then register at JPN to get Malaysian Certificate based on Singapore ROM?

Initially we did think about ROM in Singapore, however due to family concern, we then decided to ROM in Malaysia instead.
