Written Reply to Parliamentary Question on Allowing Entry for Foreign Partners of Singaporeans for the Registration of Their Marriage, by Mr K Shanmugam, Minister for Home Affairs and Minister for Law

Published: 03 November 2020


Mr Seah Kian Peng: To ask the Minister for Home Affairs whether entry into Singapore can be accorded to foreigners to allow them specifically to register their marriages with their fiance/fiancee who are Singapore citizens at the Registry of Marriages provided that they adhere to the prevailing health checks and quarantine measures as prescribed.



    1. To manage the risk of importation of COVID-19 into Singapore, all foreign visitors are required to seek prior approval before entering Singapore. ICA will generally be facilitative of foreigners who apply to enter Singapore to register their marriage with a Singapore Citizen or Permanent Resident. They will need to submit an application for entry via the ICA website. If the application is approved, they will be subject to the prevailing COVID-19 measures for inbound travellers, such as the Stay-Home Notice (SHN) and swab test requirements, including related fees.
