Postby InAust » Wed, 19 May 2010 3:06 pm

Hello Friends,

I am new to this forum and will have to face this issue of NS liability for my son who will be turning 10 this year. I need some advise to manouver the NS liability. My whole family is living Australia since Jan 2008 tagged on my work visa and we have gotten our PR Jan this year. We intend to take up citizenship when we are eligible in 2012. We are willing to renounce SG citizenship for the sake of our son as we wish our son to be free to travel to singapore, the country of his birth. What steps should we take please. thank you

NS exemption

Postby InAust » Thu, 20 May 2010 4:17 pm

Hi MS...thank you very much for your kind information and assistance. Yes I have read through the information and now have a fair bit of understanding. But I am wondering, do you think it is better for me to contact mindef and send information of my son and our intentions? I thought the earlier the better....what do you think....thanks

Hi MS....thanks for your detailed advise. Think I will keep tab along this line. My son is 10 this year. I am eligle for Citizenship in Jan 2012 and likely to recieve it before he turns 13. Apply for exit permit online with CBPB, extend it after it expires. Then apply for deferment pending renunciation at 21. Will come back here to discuss if anything else comes up. Thank you!

Deferment Till 21 pending renouncation

Postby Bluesamba2001 » Thu, 10 Jun 2010 8:33 am

To...Mad Scientist

In your post on April 14 2010 you said that you got the following from MINDEF, as my son has the same problem can you please email me a copy of this letter, (you may black out any personal details) I am interested to see this as MINDEF has told me there is no such thing.
Please email me at Bluesamba2001@yahoo.com.sg

Thanks

Notes
a. The application for National Service(NS) deferment till 21 years old, pending renunciation of Singapore citizenship is only applicable to male Singapore citizens aged between 13 to 21 year old,holding foreign citizenship or permanent residence,and who intends to renounce his Singapore citizenship at his age of 21 years old. (Hereby referred to as "registrant")

b. Please provide a letter of consent from either parent if registrant is below 18 years old.

c. Processing Time : We require 3 weeks to consider the application . In the meantime, registrant is required to comply with the Enlistment Act (Chapter 93) for NS registration and Exit Permit

Renouncation of citizenship

Postby Bluesamba2001 » Thu, 10 Jun 2010 9:27 pm

To Mad Scientist

Thanks for your reply, Firstly I am a New Zealand citizen and at the time of my son’s birth was working in Singapore. We returned to New Zealand when my son was 7 years old. (He is now 15 years old) At birth he was registered as a Singapore Citizen but prior to our departure he had acquired New Zealand Citizenship.

We informed CMPB of his and ours intention to renounce his Singapore Citizenship however they have stated he must do NS first. I have been in correspondence with Ms Leong Kai Ping for Permanent Secretary Ministry of Defence over this matter but each time I have been informed that he must do NS. And that he cannot renounce his citizenship until he has done so.

I have also requested deferment of NS pending renunciation at the age of 21 but this has also been turned down.

At no point have I been informed that there is an application for National Service (NS) deferment till 21 years old, pending renunciation of Singapore citizenship as you have mentioned and as such I am keen to see this in writing. I hope you may be kind enough to send me a copy of this and as I have said please black out any personal details.

Once again thanks and I would appreciate any assistance you may be able to give. If you require more information please feel free to email at Bluesamba2001@yahoo.com.sg
