Advisory on renunciation of PR

If the main applicant intends to renounce the permanent residence status, all the dependants who obtained the permanent residence status under the sponsorship are also required to renounce together with the same procedure.

NS-liable Permanent Residents (PRs) are expected to serve National Service (NS).

Renouncing or losing one's PR status without serving or completing full-time NS will have a serious adverse impact on applications to work or study in Singapore, or for any long-term immigration facilities in Singapore, whether now or in the future. Renouncing or losing one’s PR status without serving or completing full-time NS will also adversely affect your family members’ applications for long-term immigration facilities, their ability to sponsor such facilities, their renewal of Re-Entry Permits, or their applications for Singapore citizenship.

If you still wish to proceed with the renunciation of your PR, you may submit the application online.

Please refer to ICA website for further information on the documents requirement to renounce PR.

Should you decide to renounce your PR status, you are also advised to liaise with your employer and the Central Provident Fund Board (CPFB) on your CPF matters. You can contact CPFB for further information and assistance.
