If a citizen of the Singapore arrives for permanent residence in the Singapore without withdrawal from the consular account from the country of his previous residence, he must provide:

a certificate of exclusion from the country of former residence with a mandatory indication of belonging to citizenship, issued by the foreign office of the Singapore (or the Department of Consular Service of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Singapore)or a document on the removal from the registry of the former residence, issued and duly certified by the competent authorities of the foreign state. For applying for Singapore PR this happens to be a very important step now.

If the original leave sheet with a stamp on removal from the registration record is submitted, in connection with the departure to a permanent place of residence outside the Singapore for a period longer than three months from the date of issue, the internal affairs body shall check for the presence of registration and citizenship of the country of former residence.
