REP renewal - unique situation

Post by redblimp » Sun, 21 Apr 2024 12:42 am

Hello,

I became a PR in 2023 under spouse sponsorship as my wife was already a PR for many years. Both our REPs are linked and both are set to expire on the same date in mid-2025. However my wife has recently been approved to become a Singapore Citizen meaning she will no longer need or have a REP. Once she becomes a citizen, what will happen to my REP given that they are currently both linked?

After your spouse becomes sg citizen, you will become an independent PR and still your REP will expire in mid 2025 after which you have to renew it on your own.

I beg to differ. He is already on a Family Ties PR, With spouse gaining SGC, He will still be on a Family Ties PR but the only real question is whether or not the expiry date will change. It's only an admnistrative question in reality.

Thanks for the reply - do you know if there is any way to find out if my REP expiry date will automatically be extended when my spouse officially completes the registration as a SGC?

I wasn't sure if I needed to put a request into ICA for this.

1. After your wife become sc, you will remain a PR under her sponsorship, as confirmed by ICA FAQs.
2. As the REP expiry date is available in the ICA portal, so by right you can always check after your wife complete the sc registration. But if you need this info immediately, I think the only way to contact ICA directly?
