Reporting Change of Address

This page serves as a guide to Singapore citizens and permanent residents on the procedures to report changes of address on identity cards.

Procedures for Reporting Change of Address for Identity Card Holders


Under the National Registration Act, an Identity Card (NRIC) holder is required to report the change of his residential address within 28 days.


Documentary evidence is required if a NRIC holder wishes to change his address on the NRIC.  This requirement is a security measure to prevent errant NRIC holders from falsely reporting changes of addresses thereby protecting the bona fide residents.
