You and your parents have benefited and continue to benefit from having SC, while that is ongoing any attempt to renounce SC will fail and your NS obligation will remain. Children of emigrants can avoid NS but there is a strict procedure to follow and it needs to be done ASAP. Read up on the second link I posted.NSAdvice wrote:The thing is, I'm not doing this to get out of NS. I do not have plans on going back to Singapore, maybe for the occasional visit, or if my plane gets diverted as you said. I don't know what you mean by "another permit", I thought I only needed one? My dad will probably give up his Singaporean citizenship very soon as well. I'm just asking for any way to get on with my life without doing NS as I don't want it to interfere with my studies.
Your family need to cut all ties with Singapore ASAP and you need to inform CMPB immediately of your intention to renounce SC. See the second link I posted above.NSAdvice wrote:My parents are quite supportive of me getting exempted from NS. My father was actually not born in Singapore, it's just that he acquire Singaporean citizenship. So in this case, should my dad renounce his citizenship ASAP? My exit permit has no expired yet actually. I got my permit a few months late, so it is still within that 2-year range. I'm sorry if I'm a bit slow, but what's the exact process I have to do now to give me a better chance at getting the exemption, or is it already impossible?
I don't know. Your parents have left it very late but as you left Singapore at 11.5 yo you may have a chance provided you move quick to inform CMPB and begin the process of taking up US citizenship and/or using your Chinese citizenship. You need good legal advice - not urban myths.NSAdvice wrote:Do I have a good chance?
Have you parents got a bond in place now? If you achieve a deferment to 21 to allow you to renounce SC that should cancel out the need for a bond.NSAdvice wrote:I'm assuming that I also have to get my exit permit renewed? I also have another question. Assuming I do get the deferment, do my parents still have to pay the bond?
Sorry to bother you again, but I'm not sure who to contact in order to inform Singapore of my intention to renounce my citizenship. From all the articles I've been provided, I've been told to tell it to ICA, MinDef, and CMPB, and I'm not sure which department to contact. Also, should I be sending a physical paper letter to an email to them?PNGMK wrote: Your family need to cut all ties with Singapore ASAP and you need to inform CMPB immediately of your intention to renounce SC.
