ha! this won't happen - once you're in, you're in until they let you out.alexsss wrote:...ns will call me in around june too. if they decide to call me to ns, i am only serving for 1-2 month and i will be out of it due to the dual citizenship law singapore will cancel my citizenship.
HOW did you renounce? What proof do you have from ICA to indicate that you are no longer a Singapore citizen? Unless you can produce evidence of renouncement, you are still a citizen. Sending them your passport and NRIC doesn't mean you are not a citizen. So, unless you have proof, you will be called up. If you don't go, you will be a deserter. If you are a deserter, when you step into Singapore you will be arrested and thrown into jail for a period of 2 to 7 years and the upon release you will still have to do your NS. After which, you will be allowed to renounce.alexsss wrote:so you mean that i gave up citizenship on June then i will go in NS ? in the law stated that anyone above 21 must chose their nationality or else sg government will cancel it, so i choose to be malaysian and then give up citizenship on June, and after that i will go to serve NS 2 years then send back to malaysia?
My friend, I believe that unless you have the use of a time machine, you will have to serve NS. As I understand it, NS liability is established at the age of 11. So if you didn't renounce your Singapore citizenship before reaching that age, you will not be allowed to renounce until after you have completed your military service. I'm sure SMS, MS, Taxico or another learned poster will correct me if I'm wrong on that point, but that is what I have seen documented in many places.alexsss wrote:under the dual citizenship law anyone must renounce their citizenship or singapore government will automatically revoke their citizenship at age of 22.
DUAL CITIZENSHIP: Child born abroad of Singaporean parents, who acquires the citizenship of the country of birth, may maintain dual citizenship until the age of 21 years. Then the person has 12 months to take the Oath of Allegiance and Loyalty and renounce the foreign citizenship, or their Singaporean citizenship will be revoked.
ICA sent me a letter to either take oath of loyalty or renounce, if i did not do anything then i will lost my citizenship according to the letter. so my main point is when i go in NS for 2 month, am i going to lost my citizenship? i will not take oath and i am no longer singaporean when i reach 22 at august 2013. do i still need to finish the national service as a malaysian?
Hmmm. Well, dribbling bits of information out piecemeal isn't going to make it easy for people to give you the right advice. I'll sit back and let one of the better qualified posters advise whether your NS obligations are any different to the information already posted above.alexsss wrote:i only get singapore citizenship when i am 16 years old fyi . before that i was in malaysia. thanks for your opinion
Your attitude is not going to win you many friend or get you too much help here. You came here looking for answers. Just because you are not getting the answers that you want to hear, is not a reason to cop an attitude. You have a lot of growing up to do, that much is obvious.alexsss wrote:i only get singapore citizenship when i am 16 years old fyi . before that i was in malaysia. thanks for your opinion
