Child Born Overseas

Back to top

Singapore does not register births that occurred overseas. If a child is born overseas, the parents should register the child’s birth and obtain the birth certificate from the foreign authorities in the country/place where the child is born.

Apply Online Singapore Citizenship Application

Upon obtaining the child’s overseas birth certificate, the Singapore citizen parent can submit the Singapore Citizenship application for the child using his/her Singpass account.

Please refer to Becoming a Singapore Citizen for more information.
