    to renounce? just prepare all the necessary documents, go down to ICA and submit the forms. You don't even need to notarize the documents if you do it over the counter.

    caution... yes. Not to jump for joy until my Dreamliner has taken off from Changi Airport. I wonder how many brave souls have felt the same.

    You can get away for only 5 years based on how long the SIngapore passport is valid. "Don't ask, don't tell" - not true. When you renew passport, you will be asked. If you say yes, then you have to renounce one of the citizenship or something, you cannot keep both citizenship.

    If you say no, then you are lying on the passport renewal form and forever you worry about being arrested for lying when you return to Singapore.

    a word of caution for sinkies who have u.s. pr for decades and have yet to transition to u.s. citizenship....
    you may lose your u.s. pr (it's not permanent nor guaranteed for life), and not only that you may get deported too if you have a misdemeanor. a polish citizen with u.s. pr of more than 30 years (his deceased parents never thought of converting his status to citizenship - how stubborn and stupid) is recently facing revocation of pr status and possible deportation for 2 misdemeanor charges that occurred when he was a teen in the u.s. (destruction of property less than $100 and concealing stolen goods). this polish guy is moreover a doctor for crying out loud. for small time offenses like theft of sundry items in a convenience store and smoking weed in cities, counties and states where it's unlawful to do so you will be charged for misdemeanors. even if the city, county, and state allow you to smoke weed for recreational use, it's still a federal crime. and if you have a pr and are charged for misdemeanor, you will be deported as the pr is revoked if you go on record as committing a crime. as a u.s. citizen, you have better protection of all city, county, state and federal laws. you don't get deported and you can challenge your case in court or plea for a lesser sentence such as a fine.

    "have u.s. pr for decades and have yet to transition to u.s. citizenship...."

    i cannot understand the mentality of these people. most immigrants in world want to be American. the more discerning ones want to be Aussies. And the truly smart ones become Kiwis, like Sammyboy :)

    these sinkies follow advice of stupid sinkies not to take up new citizenship while holding on to (“valuable”) sg citizenship. many sinkies in my area are still holding on to sg citizenship and u.s. pr after 6.9 years wanting to have the best of both worlds, having cake and eat it too. that’s the sinkie “me me me” selfish mindset. kpkb about pap as they don’t vote in sg erections and kpkb about life in u.s. as they can’t vote. when they are caught with dui or other misdemeanors they will be revoked of their pr and deported. and then they kpkb yet again that the laws are not fair. bunch of nincompoops.

    will still kena stopped at sino-russian and russo-belarusian crossings. ruskies will detain sinkies as they think sinkie passports are fake or from timbuktu. “wtf? you’re from what? sinkapore? never heard of that city in china.”

    Shows the excellent job by the Pappies. I wonder how we can learn from them and influence a bunch of 6.9mil sinkies to this extend.

    onus is on the parents. cannot expect kids to read up on the law and be aware of every jeopardy that may bite them in the future. for sinkies who are adults and aware of the pitfalls yet stubbornly refuse to transition it's beyond help.
