Looking to move to a new home? For homeowners, you may be exploring a move once your Minimum Occupation Period (MOP) is fulfilled and you have sold your home. For new Singapore Permanent Residents (SPR), you can buy a resale flat after three years.

Now that you’re off to a fresh start, there’s one more thing you need to add to your moving checklist: updating your address. The government advises that you should do this as soon as possible to avoid losing important and urgent letters and bills in the mail.

How many government agencies do you need to notify of your new address? You would need to contact the following depending on your profession and other licenses that you possess. Note that this is not an exhaustive list.

  1. Inland Revenue Authority of Singapore (IRAS)
  2. Central Provident Fund (CPF)
  3. Housing and Development Board (HDB)
  4. Land Transport Authority (LTA)
  5. Ministry of Social and Family Development (MSFD)
  6. Ministry of Manpower – If you employ foreign domestic workers who are work permit holders.
  7. NParks, Animal & Veterinary Service (AVS) – If you have dogs.

Did you know that you can inform several government agencies about your new residential address all at once? Skip the stress of doing it one by one.

Simple 2-Step Process to Update Your Residential Address:

1. Obtain Proof of Your New Address.

Before you can change your address on your NRIC, you must obtain proof of your new residential address.

You can use these documents as proof of your new residential address. Please make sure they are recent documents, dated no later than three months ago:

  • Phone/Internet bill
  • Service and conservancy bill from your Town Council
  • Utility bill
  • Cable TV bill
  • Credit card/bank statement
  • Insurance bill/statement/letter
  • Tenancy agreement for residence
  • HDB bill/statement/letter

You can also use these documents if they were issued less than a year ago:

  • CPF statement/letter
  • LTA bill/letter (e.g. road tax)
  • IRAS bill/statement/letter (e.g. income tax, property tax, etc.)

2: Take your documentary proof to a Police Centre/Post or the Citizen Services Centre

Take your document and your NRIC to your nearest neighbourhood police centre/post or to the Citizen Services Centre:

Immigration and Checkpoints Authority, 3rd storey, ICA Building at 10 Kallang Road, Singapore 208718

If your documents are in order, the officer will make the necessary changes on your National Registration Identity Card (NRIC). They will then update your address with these agencies.

As part of the One-Stop Address Reporting (OSCARS) initiative, participating agencies will be updated with your new residential address the next day. For government agencies that are not in this list of agencies, you have to update your address with them separately.

Changing your residential address can’t get any faster with these steps.
