I relocated from Singapore 2 years ago and haven't been back. i was a Singapore PR when i was worked there and have recently been thinking about giving up my PR so that I can access my CPF contributions.

Does anyone know the process to do that and the time frame inwhich it can be done??

On another topic, if i travel back to Singapore and show my PR card upon arrival will the fact that I haven't been back in 2 years cause an issue with immigration??

Withdawn CPF

You may withdraw your CPF in full if you have left Singapore and West Malaysia permanently with no intention of returning to either country for employment or residence.

You may apply for withdrawal online under my cpf Online Services - My Requests if you have a SingPass. Alternatively, you can also complete the application form CPF-LM and mail it to them.

To support your application, mail photocopies of the relevant supporting documents (as stated on the application form) which must be certified by a Notary Public or an official from the Singapore High Commission.

Reentry

A valid Re-Entry Permit (REP) is necessary whenever a Singapore Permanent Resident (SPR) wishes to travel out of Singapore. It will enable him/her to retain his/her SPR status while away from Singapore

A SPR will lose his/her SPR status if he/she leaves/remains outside Singapore without a valid REP. On his/her return to Singapore, he/she may be granted immigration facilities accorded to an ordinary social visitor. He/she can report to the Permanent Resident Services Centre, 5th Storey, ICA Building to apply for reinstatement of the SPR status. If approved, a fee of S$50 has to be paid for reinstatement of the SPR status. If you plan to leave Singapore, please ensure that your REP is valid on your return.

Hope that help :oops:
