National Service Obligation

Postby kapear02 » Tue, 19 Feb 2019 7:56 pm

Dear all,

I would appreciate your input in this case. My nephew migrated to Perth, Australia when he was 11/12 years old. During the time of migrating to Perth, he did not applied for an exit permit. He was enrolled in an International School except for the last 3 months in a local school prior to leaving for Perth.

He was not issued with a Singapore IC nor have a Singapore passport. Upon reaching the age of 21 he applied to renounce his Singapore citizenship as he has Japanese citizenship which does not allow dual citizenship. His application was channeled through MINDEF and he was fined $500 for not applying for an exit permit. Having paid the fine he was allowed to renounce his Singapore citizenship successfully.

He is now planning to visit Singapore and is worried of any further consequences upon arrival into Singapore. Would appreciate if you could offer some insight into this case.

Thank you for all your input..Regards Stephen

No he does not have any proof. Not sure whether MINDEF will give this in writing. Thanks for your reply.
