Adult passport, Concurrent Passport

In cases of demonstrated need you can apply for a concurrent passport – a second passport of the same kind as your first – to facilitate international travel.  Approval is generally limited to cases where significant travel delays could be caused by waiting for visa(s) to be issued or when a destination country will not accept a passport showing evidence of travel to a third country.

Concurrent passports are issued for a maximum of three years and cost the same as a standard ten-year passport.  Applications are subject to approval and if we decide that you don’t qualify for a concurrent passport, your application fee is generally not refundable.  Fees are non-refundable.


To apply for a concurrent passport, you should first contact us to discuss your application and eligibility.  You can email us at [email protected] or call us on +65 6836 4100 (select option 2).
