Unwed Singaporean/Expat parents

Post by Cassiopeia » Sun, 02 Jan 2022 2:20 am

I am an expat on EP and pregnant. Child's father is Singaporean and, although we are not in a relationship, is willing to take some responsibility from his side. If I understand correctly, my child will get Singaporean citizenship as long as I write down the father's name on the birth certificate. Does anyone know whether the fact that my child is Singaporean will increase my chances of getting a PR and eventually the citizenship? I can't seem to find much info about that.
Appreciate your feedback.

Citizenship
An illegitimate child’s citizenship status depends on whether the child’s mother is a Singapore citizen.

The Constitution of the Republic of Singapore requires the mother of the illegitimate child to be a Singapore citizen in order for the child to acquire citizenship by birth. Therefore, if the child’s mother is not a Singapore citizen, the child will not be able to acquire Singapore citizenship by birth even his or her biological father is a Singapore citizen. Having an Adoption Order will not, in itself, affect the citizenship status of the child.
