    Hello, ICA has been corresponding with me over the last few months and the basic message is this renounce Australian citizenship or renounce Singaporean citizenship.

    For reasons unknown, I would rather renounce Australian citizenship than to renounce Singaporean citizenship. I have been an Australian citizen for 8 years now since 2010.

    Are there any way to keep both singaporean citizenship and australian citizenship? please help a noob here. thanks!

    How did ICA find out? So, it's not true S'pore is tolerant of dual citizenship. No more keeping an open mind about it.

    The question you got to ask yourself is ..... any extra benefits of being a Singaporean versus a Australian?

    If you currently still have a HDB flat, then the question is answered.

    I know Singaporeans who hold two or more passports.And they remain absolutely low-key on this. Its all about the CPF money, I think. HDB has a big say as well. Just don't make an issue out of it. You can't win.

    Cheers!

    I will keep Aussie citizenship instead. Sinkapore citizenship is useless. Sell off all your assets and run road.

    if that SG passport that enables you to travel to 100+ countries visa is important to you, then drop Aussie lor.

    Don't let the door hit you on the way out

    During passport renewal, there is a question on citizenship of another country.
