3. Community Sharing Session
Community Sharing Sessions will provide an opportunity for new Singapore citizens to mingle and interact with grassroots leaders and volunteers from their local community who will share their experiences of living in a multi-racial and multi-religious society. New citizens will also learn how they can participate or volunteer in the community. Family members are also encouraged to participate in the programmes offered to the new Singapore citizens, to make this learning journey meaningful for the entire family.
New citizens who have been granted in-principle approval for Singapore Citizenship (SC) will undergo the SC Journey before they can complete their citizenship formalities. They have up to 2 months to complete the three components.
The Singapore Citizenship Journey is a multi-agency effort involving the National Integration Council, the Immigration and Checkpoints Authority of Singapore, and the People’s Association.
