20 years ?? Don't think so

I been here for just 10 plus years, and when I was here, the announcement for the discontinuation was made ..

Should be 10 years or so .. ;)

International Passport is just the common passport, different from Diplomatic Passport.

Everytime I fill an online application (EP,Visa, ...) this is the one to select for normal passport holders.

Gee .. Diplomatic passports ?? :???: :???:

Man, if you are on diplomatic passport, then you don't need EP .. you only notify the reciprocal country for your assumption of diplomatic duties ..

I am confused now .. :? :? :?

What I meant is that International Passport = Passport

His International Passport expired means that his Passport expired just that, and that he's holding an ordinary passport, not any special one.

Rebate for Singapore Restricted Passport (SRP)
On 2 Dec 1998, Singapore Immigration & Registration announced that restricted passports would no longer be issued from 1 Jan 1999, while valid SRPs can continue to be used till 31 Dec 1999.
2 From 1 Jul 1999, SIR will compensate holders of Singapore Restricted Passports (SRPs) issued from 2 Jan 1990 up to 2 Dec 1998 with validity beyond 31 Dec 1999 for the remaining period of validity. The rebates will be offset against the Singapore International Passport (SIP) fee when holders apply for SIP.

Looks like you've been here longer than you think you have! :lol: Jan 1999? That's over a dozen years already! That or you hear the announcement on the discontinuation of the Malaysian ones which were later.

As for me? After the first couple of decades, things tend to get a little hazy. What's a decade or so when you been around over half a dozen already! :lol:
