How to Change IC (NRIC) Address

If you move your house or for whatever reason your Singapore residential address is changed, you MUST update the address on your IC with the government (if you are a resident).

Yes, MUST. Under the National Registration Act, an Identity Card (IC) holder (Singapore citizen and Singapore PR) is required to report his/her change of residential address within 28 days.

Participating government agencies and statutory boards (PDF) will then be informed of the change in address through the OSCARS.

How to Update Your Singapore IC Address

You simply need to go to ICA Building, Level 3 Citizen Services Centre or any of the Neighbourhood Police Posts/Centres to update the change of address in your Identity Card (IC) who will then verify the information on his print-out with your personal particulars against the documents produced (check out the acceptable documents below).

A sticker showing the new address would then be printed and pasted onto your existing IC.
