This is the last step for my journey to becoming a Singapore Citizen. In this step I will be collecting my Borang-K and birth certificate. On 3rd March 2021, I received a letter from the High Commission of Malaysia, Singapore that my citizenship renunciation application has been approved and the documents are ready for collection.
There is no need to make an appointment for the collection. However, I must collect the documents within one month from the date of the letter. The collection is only available on weekdays from 2:30pm to 4pm. Thus I have to take one day leave from my work for the collection. I can actually take a half day leave but I don’t want to rush myself and get caught into a messy situation. Due to Covid-19 pandemic, operation hour might change from time to time. It is good that you check out the latest announcement from Malaysia High Commission, Singapore website for updates.
- Bring along the collection letter.
- Prepare the following documents (original and two photocopies in A4 paper for each documents)
- Singapore Pink Identity Card (photocopy front and back)
- Singapore passport (Biometric page only)
- Singapore Citizenship Certificate (photocopy front and back)
- Deed poll / Baptism (if name has been changed / if applicable)
The collection procedure is pretty simple and straightforward. It took me about 30 minutes to complete the whole process. Let’s go through that now. Firstly, submit all your documents at the first counter. The officer will check through the documents. If all the required document are in place then you can sit back to wait for your turn again. Proceed to the counter when the officer calls your name. The officer will hand you your Borang-K and birth certificate for checking. Make sure you get the right documents before you sign off. That’s all. You are done and may leave for home.
Lastly, scan a copy of your Borang-K on the front and back page. Then upload it to MyICA portal. Alternatively, you may email it to ICA at ICA_Citizenship_Unit@ica.gov.sg.
