Advice on citizenship - considerations

Post by soyalover » Sun, 17 Apr 2022 2:16 pm

Would like to seek advice on the impacts or considerations for Sg citizenship, given that:

1. Msian PR couple (wife is dependent PR. Note: NOT dependent pass)
2. In future, wife may have to inherit property in Msia
3. Considering to buy resale HDB soon after 3 yrs of PR or after 1 person converted to Sg citizen

Considerations:
1. If 1 person convert to Citizen, am aware that there is a chance that the gov may ask the other to convert as well. Any difference on whether the wife or husband convert to citizen? Would like to keep 1 Msian citizenship, ideally husband remain Msian
2. Aware about HDB & foreign property ownership rule - but after resale HDB MOP period of 5 years, should be no issue to own foreign property right? What about any factors on Msia side - if wife convert to Sg citizen, to own the property via name transfer or inheritance, is there any limitation that you've heard of?

Thank you for your advice.

If wife is dependent PR, she cannot remain as PR once you convert to SC, she also cant convert alone to SC.

ICA is well aware of all these loopholes and will make sure it is not easy.
