Can I be exempted from NS?

Postby h2oreos » Fri, 08 Feb 2019 8:25 pm

Hello,

I am currently 15, turning 16 at the end of march. I wasn’t born in Singapore but I have PR status. I am currently studying in a private school and I finish sometime in June, after which I plan to leave Singapore and cancel my PR status.

As far as I know, I only need to register once I am 16 and a half, so does that mean if I cancel my PR status before September I am legally exempted from NS?

Did you get PR under your parent's sponsorship?

SF is asking how did you obtain your PR status? Is it through your parent’s sponsorship? I.e. making you a 2nd generation PR.
