Citizenship = National Service?

Post by YourAverageGuy » Tue, 17 Jun 2008 12:24 am

Hi alls, frequent visitor, first-time poster. I'm currently a PR holder considering applying for citizenship status.

I know for a fact that first-generation PR holders are not required to serve National Service, but is this also the case once I become a Singapore citizen? (Or "having to convert" as some of my colleagues endearingly termed it...)

If I'm required to serve NS, I may reconsider applying for citizenship.

How old are you? Are your parents citizens/PRs?

Hi, sorry for the late reply, I've been really busy the past few days. Thanks for replying to my post.

I'm currently 21 YO, and no my parents are not PR/citizens.
