Registration of Citizenship by Descent

The Singapore Embassy/Consulate can assist to forward applications for Singapore Citizenship to the Singapore Immigration and Checkpoints Authority for processing for a child who is born overseas and who meets any of the following conditions:

The father, who is a Singapore citizen by Birth and has a lawful marriage,
The father, who is a Singapore citizen by Registration and has a lawful marriage. The child shall not acquire citizenship of the country he was born by reason of his birth in that country.
The mother, who is a Singapore citizen by Birth and the child born on or after 15 May 2004.
The mother, who is a Singapore citizen by Registration and the child born on or after 15 May 2004. The child shall not acquire citizenship of the country he was born by reason of his birth in that country.
The father (who has a lawful marriage at time of child’s birth) or mother, is a Singapore citizen by Descent has to complete an additional Annex form to the application declaring their residence period in Singapore. The application can only be accepted if the applicant fulfils the requirements stipulated in the Annex.

If the child is born in Singapore and both parents are Singaporean citizens, dual citizenship is also not allowed. Only if one parent is not a citizen will they allow dual citizenship up to the age of 21 provided said child is born in Singapore.

Yes, it is possible, but no it's not legal and you could end up in deep poo if caught.
Anyway we are very clear that we are going to take up ONLY SG Citizenship for the child.
