How to entry Singapore again after being prohibited?

Post by nicktambunan » Thu, 13 Feb 2020 5:59 pm

Hi, I am Nicholas. I live in Batam. I wanna ask you guys if you have the same case or solutions for my case. I banned to come to Singapore because the immigration officer found out that my birth month was different compared to my national ID card. They said I had to returned to Batam after being detained for several hours and need to change my birth month with the correct one and I did. I got my new passport.

So, I tried to come into Singapore again on Feb 01 with the new passport but then they still detained me at their office. They took my old and new passport, Indonesia' ID card and checked on their system. They still didn't allow me to enter Singapore. They said I need to send an email to the ICA for approval. I sent it but the reply dont actually tell me anything. ICA said I need to find a singaporean or someone who holds PR as a local sponsor.

Is there somebody has any solution for my case or has different email to complain because I sent it to
I am so stressful.
Appreciate for your replies.

As the reply said, you need a local sponsor. Without a local sponsor you are stuck outside of Singapore.
