Citizenship approved in principle, scheduled overseas training in one month

Postby greymatters1 » Wed, 27 Jun 2018 9:36 am

Hi everyone,

I had applied for Singapore citizenship 1 year ago with my family. I just got my in principle approval letter yesterday.

However, I had gotten a MOH funded scholarship to undertake an overseas clinical fellowship in the UK for 1 year starting this August. I had applied for a visa for that (Tier 5 training visa) with my family and it just got approved too yesterday.

I wont have time to complete the citizenship formalities before I go to the UK. And even if I try to complete it before, I may have to start the entire sponsorship/VISA process to the UK again. I cant renounce my current citizenship any time during this one year, else my UK visa becomes invalid. So I cant come back in between and do too.

Anyone has been in a similar situation before? What are my options? Will ICA allow to postpone completion of formalities by 1 year?

Any advice would be much appreciated.

Thank you!

Hahahah - oh the plans of mice and men. You're double phucked as Singapore won't allow dual citizenship either. You really didn't think that one through Sahib.
