I tend to agree with you on this though I do not condone nor approve of illegal means which is wrong and it will caught up with you later in life. Malaysian will have a much chance to fly under the radar compare to Sger. I had one from this forum whom did just that and SG ICA found out after he regained his renounced foreign citizenship after completing NS.sensei_ wrote:
It would be naive to think that the thought didnt cross his mind. I just finished with a thread in an australian forum where a m'sian wanted to keep both citizenship too. like singapore malaysia doesnt allow for dual, and the OP in the other forum wanted to have the best of both worlds by having a subsidised degree at the australian expense, but the freedom to go back to malaysia should it be required.
if i were the OP, i would be contacting an australian migration lawyer, who can advise on an ex citizen visa (or something to that!)
SG citizenship issue is a Constitution one not a guideline hence it is set in stone.
OZ lawyer will not cut out or else my boys would have that easy way out although I never regret making that choice of renouncing my boys SG citizenship as the choices as on Ozzie far outweigh keeping SG citizenship if you want your children to have the world to be their centre stage.
OP, there is cut off date which you have to make. If you let ICA does it for you , it will have a blot on your file though it will not have any criminal impllication, it will may affect you coming back under EP pass.
Do it cleanly and do not burn bridges as you never know what future holds.
BTW your thoughts are nothing new and it does not affect SG stance on this or else we would have gone away with it years before you are even born !!
