    My husband and I are both SPR from Malaysia. I am wondering if i should give birth in Singapore or Malaysia? Can my baby hold dual citizenship with neither her parents are Singapore Citizen? I have a 2 years old daughter, ever an officer from ICA asked why didn't i give birth my daughter in Singapore..it made a lot difference. What would be the different if she is just holding a PRship instead of citizenship? Any advice pls??

    As wat i know dual citizenship is impossible. And if both parent is PR, ur child will be still under msia citizen. U have to apply PR for your BB if you wan. I dun c if there is any difference.
    Unless either u or ur hubby is sporean, then it makes the differences.

    Kate,
    since both you and hubby is Malaysian, how do u intend to apply Singapore citizenship for your baby? Unless either one of you convert to Singaporean, then only your baby can be a Singaporean.
    Singapore do not give citizenship by birth.

    Me and my hubby is also SPR from Malaysia. Our gal is born in Singapore and she can only be a SPR. As far as I know there is no difference for your baby if she/he is born in Singapore or Malaysia. coz your baby can only be a SPR since both parents are only SPR.

    just sharing:
    from what i read in the other thread, dual citizenship is possible if the mother is Singaporean. What the mommies said is to give birth in Malaysia and because father is Malaysia, baby is auto become Malaysian citizenship. then the mother go to ICA website to register the baby for Singaporean citizenship.
    Then the child has to decide to choose which citizenship he/she wants when is 21 years old.

    If mummy is Singaporean, daddy is Malaysian (Singapore PR), the baby will be born in Singapore, baby will hold Singapore citizenship right? But in Malaysia, will baby be citizen or PR? Confusing...

    No. You'll have the Singapore birth certificate. But at the bottom, they will write: This child is not a citizen of Singapore at the time of birth.

    hi Jermjerm,
    f mummy is Singaporean, daddy is Malaysian (Singapore PR), the baby will be born in Singapore, baby will hold Singapore citizenship right? But in Malaysia, will baby be citizen or PR? Confusing...

    If mummy is Singaporean, daddy is Malaysian, baby born in Singapore will hold Singapore Citizenship. It is because the Singapore birth cert will state Baby is a citizen of Singapore at time of birth. So Malaysia will not give out citizenship application form (borang W) for you to apply your baby as Malaysian.

    But if you give birth in Malaysia, then your baby will be granted Malaysia citizenship and to enjoy dual citizenship, you can come back to Singapore to apply as Singapore citizen at ICA.

    Hope it is clear for you. :)

    Singaporean mummy + Malaysian daddy (Singapore PR)
    If mummy gives birth in M'sia, baby holds dual citizenship, until he reaches 21 years old. At that age, he has to choose to be either a Singapore or Malaysia citizen.
    However, take note that Baby Bonus may be prorated, depending on when baby becomes a Singapore citizen. Check the Baby Bonus website.
    Also, if baby is not a Singaporean, maternity leave may not be 4 months for the Singaporean mummy. Better clarify with your employee.

    Thanks for the confirmation!

    Btw, if baby boy chose to be Malaysian at 18 years old, what are the chances of him applying for Singapore citizenship say later in 30s or 40s? I was told that once anyone reject Singapore citizenship when it's offered to them, it will be almost impossible to be offered again.

    if baby boy chose to be Malaysian at 18 years old, he will face difficulty to get even employment pass.

    I have a friend rejected govt's offer to convert to citizen. He only granted work permit (Aust graduates) and with work permit, he cant even apply for PR.

    If either of you is Singaporean, you can choose to delivery in Malaysia in order to apply for dual citizhenship. Your baby will have Malaysian citizenship first then you come to Singapore to apply citizenship for your baby.

    My case I decide to deliver in Singapore, so only can get Singapore citizenship, because Malaysia don't accept dual citizenship at all.
