Entering Singapore with double nationality.

Post by Bart » Mon, 29 Nov 2004 12:42 am

My wife was born in Singapore, has been living in the Netherlands for 15 years and holds the Singaporean and Dutch nationality.

We are planning a vacation to Singapore soon. Which passport should she use entering singapore?

The dutch passport shows her birth date and that she was born in Singapore, so it will be fairly easy for the immigration dept. to find out that she also is a Singapore Citizen. (what will happen ??)

If she shows the Singapore passport (Issued in holland) the immigration department won't see any VISA stamps. So they might ask explanation eg. to proof that she is a permant resident of the Netherlands: but the only way to do that would be to show her dutch passport.

Can anyone advice on this ???

Entering Sg with a Sg passport, is almost like a walk through. They just scan in the passport details to make an Entry record. There's no reason to ask anything, unless the passport is suspected to be fake or the photo really looks different. Besides, the Citizen/PR queue at the airport is much shorter!

All the discussion about dual nationality issues relates to males only, due to the National Service requirement.
