Naturalized Singaporean moving overseas temporarily for work

Postby sgbest » Sat, 13 Apr 2013 9:41 am

Hi All,

I just recently became Singaporeans after being PR for 7 years and now is staying overseas.

Three months ago, shortly after receiving my citizenship, I moved overseas for work at the request of my MNC employer for 3 years. I have paid my tax clearance with IRAS upon moving overseas.

My queries:
1. I just understood that I need to report my overseas address to ICA (http://www.ica.gov.sg/page.aspx?pageid=142). However, the website said I am required to report my overseas address within 28 days.
I have to report to ICA as soon as possible, but do you think ICA will ask how long have I moved overseas or why didn't I notify ICA earlier?

2. Do I need to report to MINDEF about my staying overseas?
My understanding for naturalized Singaporeans (for 30 years old man like me) is they do not require to serve NS, so this will not be necessary.

Appreciate your help and thank you in advance!

1. i wouldn't worry about it. just notify them when you have a permanent(ish) address.

2. if you have no NS liabilities, and nothing telling you otherwise, MINDEF should be none of your concern.

you may also want to consider informing your local singapore consulate/embassy/high commission of your existence in the country if you so wish. i'm not sure what help they'll render in times of need, but well... you'd never know.
