International moving can be very tedious to co-ordinate. There will be loads of paperwork and you can expect your goods to move through at least a few different hands. Hence, the chances of things going wrong are much higher than if you were to move to a new house within Singapore.

If you are leaving Singapore for good and have a CPF account, you will likely want to withdraw your monies there and terminate the account. Keep in mind though that, for Singaporeans, it will mean having to renounce your Singapore citizenship and moving to a country other than West Malaysia permanently, with no intention of returning to either Singapore or West Malaysia. This is because only Malaysian citizens who are Singapore permanent residents are allowed to withdraw their CPF on returning to West Malaysia.

All applications must come with the relevant support documents. For those submitting their application from overseas, do note that all support documents must be certified true copy by either a Notary Public or a staff with from the Singapore High Commission or Embassy in that country accompanied with his official stamp/ seal.

Other Things to Settle

Aside from your legal obligations as stated above, you will also want to:

Close you utility account.

Inform financial institutions like banks, credit card companies etc that you are leaving Singapore for good.

Ensure that you have all your important documents with you when you move including your identification papers, travel documents, children’s school records and your updated medical records especially if you are suffering from any medical condition that needs long term follow up treatment
