I have a friend who left Singapore 8 years ago when his son who is a S'pore citizen was 3 years old.  His son has no intention of keeping his S'pore citizenship as the family is well settled overseas.

Will he be able to renounce his S'pore citizenship and not be liable for any penalties when visiting S'pore as a tourist down the road?

What are the conditions and implications of renounicing a S'pore citizenship?

On the original question of ability to renounce and come back to work:

I am 32 years old, 2nd generation PR, but not an issue because am female.

Two of my classmates renounced their PR-ship to get out of army after our A levels. (they were 2nd gen too) Both are graduates from good colleges but were not granted employment permits when they tried to come back. Social visit passes - ok .

I do understand that the govt has to be fair to the rest of the singaporean but Im curious whether did the sg govt consider about these factors while thinking about the NS policies

1. there are those who had made a "mistake" to have renounced their PR are the loyal ones as with families in sg, they are the ones who will stand up to protect the nation and their families here.
Comparing to those foreginers who get PR easily but may not be loyal to fight for singapore, they would still fight for the country where they come for.

2. losing many talents who may be able to contribute to the nation's economy.

3. tearing families apart suddenly (as these impact happened in 2006, those who renounced pr 10years old were "slapped" on the face suddenly, losing their jobs- to say that there are those who has already got sg wife, children and old parents in sg)

Im just thinking how did the govt evaluate these as a whole.
Could they try to think for the poor families being torn apart out of a sudden?

 Here is the situation.

1) My parents came to Singapore and gained PR status and applied one for me too.
2) My parents renounced their PR, along with mine and left in 2002 to emigrate to Canada. I was 13 years old.
3) Since then, we moved to the UK and gained british nationality.
4) I recently got a job offer from a french company in Singapore, who are applying for my Employment Pass, which will take up to 2 months. I am now 23 years old.

Will there be any employment pass issues in returning ex-PRs who did not serve NS (as my parents renounced my PR status when I was at a young age)?

Since you asked 3 times, here is your 3rd reply


Yes, the issue is it will probably be denied.  Unless your salary is enough to qualify you for a P1 Employment Pass *and* it is a highly niche role, I would bet a paycheck you get rejected.

Your family is very obviously taking advantage of every system they can, and leaving as soon as they can for greener pastures.  MOM and ICA work together to try and keep such types out, and they're quite good at catching them.  

Also, based on your family's behaviour, I'll make the guess there is a very good chance you're Indian.  Indians are over the racial quota, and the gov is trying to fix that quota.  You'd have a hard time without everything else against you.
