人在新加坡要如何更新护照?

近日来很多朋友都陆陆续续需要去更新护照,之前写的英文版文章也收到热烈响应,于是今天我们以中文来分享一下人在新加坡要如何及去哪里更新我们的马来西亚护照。 平常的时候,我们是可以在马来西亚驻新加坡大使馆直接上门做护照更新的。但是因为疫情影响,从今年三月二十日起至通知, 所以没预约的民众都将被拒绝服务,本局一律不接受直接上门的人员。 所以,目前更新护照的新步骤如下: 1. 先点以下网址申请,跟着步骤填写资料。 https://eservices.imi.gov.my/myimms/myPassport?lang=en&fbclid=IwAR3kTdiZcawPXs1V9FZI-P8SykgziG4YTJu5gzP8aikkiC9kzrT7K5AVPYQ 2. 注册加付款成功后,发电子邮件到 singapore@imi.gov.my 申请预约上门取件。 3. 耐心等待大使馆回复。 4. 在预约当天,携带付款收据及电子邮件证明到到大使馆去领证就可以了。 步骤确实相当的容易,但是我们在付费的时候却遇到了问题无法完成注册。 除了以上问题,我们在网上也看到网友们遇到了各种问题,例如:照片无法上传、照片更改了还是不符合标准等等。针对这些问题,网友们在网上也分享了不少小技巧来解决,如使用Google Chrome浏览器、Allow Pop Up等等(都是政府网页的普遍问题。不过我有点懒惰一个一个去尝试这些小技巧,因为也不一定会成功的。那么今天我们和大家分享一下我们是怎样更新到护照的。 首先我们拨打给大使馆移民部,虽然大多时候都没人接听,但是继续不停拨打就行了。大使馆移民部号码为:65 6887 6256,65 6887 6258,65 6887 6295,65 6887 6284,65 6887 6243。 终于,大概尝试了10分钟就有人员接听了电话。我们大概描述了遇到的问题后,工作人员似乎也已经习惯了这种状况,直接询问我们的个人电子邮件,然后要我们把以下资料发过去给singapore@imi.gov.my: 载图我们在申请网页所遇到的问题 护照副本 工作准证有效期限 把这些资料发过去过后,很快的我们就收到了回复告诉我们预约日期和时间并要我们携带以下文件过去: 现有护照 马来西亚身份证原件和副本 工作准证原件和副本 付款收据(必须打印出来)或者现金新币$66(如果你像我们一样在网站申请的时候付费失败) 顺便提醒一下,除非是小孩或者老人,当局不允许任何亲友陪同申请者哦。 预约当天 马来西亚驻新加坡大使馆位于301 Jervois Rd, Singapore 249077. 当天,我们是在多美歌地铁站乘搭14号或65号巴士,八个站后在Valley Point下车,然后再步行个10分钟就到达目的地了。 到了之后呢,需要给守卫看预约证明(载图电子邮件即可),然后申请个通行证。由于没有遮雨棚,而且可能需要排队,建议大家带把雨伞,这样大太阳或者下雨都不用怕了。 进去之后呢,如果你已经在网上成功申请,那就可以直接拿护照就走了。不然的话,就需要花点时间提交文件及拍照。这里也建议大家带点吃的和水来,因为等待的时候,只允许在外面露天的椅子上坐,不给我们进去吹个冷气的。 这里告诉大家一个好消息,护照是可以当天领取的哦! 大概等一两个小时,我们就可以拿到新护照咯!所以交好文件拍好照后,别马上离开,不然的话就需要重新预约等待哦。 Thank you for […]
