By the time you'll receive your notice from the embassy (instruction letter) you need to go to usem window x and get a request letter from the usem stating why you will need a police clearance from singapore and then you can go to singapore embassy in manila to file for you singapore police clearance.
P.S. Call firtst Singapore Embassy in manila and ask them what are the requirements in applying for a singapore police clearance. So that you can prepare. Maybe they will not need a request letter from the embassy....who knows...

Police Records
Available. The police records for Singapore may be considered complete from their origins to the present, except for the "occupation" period during World War II.

Applicants residing in Singapore should apply in person for a "Certificate of No Criminal Conviction" (CNCC) at Criminal Record Office (CID), Block D #02-01A, 391 New Bridge Road, Police Cantonment Complex, Singapore 088762, phone number 65-6435-8277, between 9:00 a.m. to 12 noon, Monday through Friday only. Applicants who are overseas may apply by correspondence to the above address. Alternatively, application can also be made online at http://www.spf.gov.s...cert_issued.htm.



The following documents should accompany the applications:

For Singaporeans: NRIC/current international passport;
For non-Singaporeans: Documentary proof of residence in Singapore must be shown - i.e. old/current passports or any relevant documents;
Exit permit, if applicable;
Two recent passport size photographs (3.5cm x 3 cm.); and
Application fee. Please check the website for current fee.
Processing time for the certificate is two to three weeks.

Former residents should write directly to the address given above for the necessary forms and instructions. Alternatively, they could have a set of rolled fingerprints taken by their local police authorities and submit this with photocopies of the documents listed above together with photographs, fee and postage charge. Singapore authorities also require that all immigrant applicants show proof of their intentions. The packet 3 cover letter bearing their name will suffice.

I am now here in the Philippines with my finance. My finance Jovelyn worked in Singapore for two years so I am sure we will need a Singapore police clearance. We are ready to schedule the interview at the embassy and I found out that she had not realized she would need a Singapore police clearance.

I went to every bank in Cebu today to try to find a way to buy a bank check denominated in Singapore dollars. (there website is quite clear that is what is required) there seems to be no way to get a bank check denominated in Singapore dollars here in Cebu.

This is now the bottleneck in our process, so I am quite frantic to solve this problem. all ideas greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

On March 11 Jovelyn and I traveled to Singapore to get her police clearance. Instead on making another special trip to pick it up on march 21 I elected to have it sent to us by registered mail thinking that it would arrive in plenty of time for April 3 interview. I was wrong, it finally arrived today, A[r 22. We went into the interview without it hoping for the best. The Embassy left our case open, Jovelyn is going to Manila tomorrow to give them the paper.

If I had it to do over I would have asked her to make another trip to Singapore, so that we would have had the paper at the interview.

Police certs are Embassy/Consulate related topic. Moving..

Certificate of Clearance
Available. The police records for Singapore may be considered complete from their origins to the present, except for the "occupation" period during World War II.

For all applicants, a form letter from the requesting/processing office (NVC, KCC, Embassy, employer etc.) is required to obtain a Certificate of Clearance (COC). Such letter should specify the need for the clearance and state explicitly that "a statutory declaration of no criminal conviction by the applicant is not acceptable as evidence that he/she does not have criminal convictions". The COC will be sent directly to the requesting/processing office.

Applicants residing in Singapore are to appear in person at the COC Office located at Blk D Police Cantonment Complex, #02-07/08, 391 New Bridge Road , Singapore 088762. The office is open from 8.30am to 12.30pm , Monday to Friday (excluding public holidays).

Applicants residing overseas should submit their applications (original) addressed to: Head Criminal Records, CID ( COC ), Blk D Police Cantonment Complex, #02-07/08, 391 New Bridge Road , Singapore 088762.

Processing time for each application is about 10 working days.

Processing fee is S$45.00 per application. Payment can be made by cash, NETS , cash card, or credit cards (VISA/MASTERCARD) for walk-in application. Application sent by post (from overseas) must be accompanied by a bank draft made payable to Head Criminal Records CID through a Singapore-based bank. In addition to the processing fee, a postage fee of S$5.00 must be included in the payment (total S$50.00) if the COC is to be mailed. Payment is non- refundable once the application is accepted.

All applicants must complete the Certificate of Clearance application form available at http://www.spf.gov.s...coc_appform.pdf in full and submit it with the necessary supporting documents:

  • A set of applicants fingerprint impressions (ten prints). Applicants applying in person will be fingerprinted at the COC office at the time of application. For application by post from overseas, the applicant must submit a set of his/her fingerprint impressions taken by a qualified Fingerprint Officer at a Police Station or an authorized office of the country he/she is now residing.
  • A photocopy of applicants valid passport (showing biodata page).
  • Two recent passport-sized photographs. Instant photo machine is available outside COC Office for applicants who appear in person (cost: S$7, approx. USD5.50, for 4 passport size photos).
  • Photocopy of document from relevant consulate/immigration authority/government bodies or other requestor to establish that the certificate is required by such authority and that a statutory declaration of no criminal conviction by the applicant is not acceptable as evidence that s/he has no criminal convictions. All documents are to be translated into English if written in other languages.
Please refer to http://www.spf.gov.s...cert_issued.htm or http://www.spf.gov for further information and updates on Certificate of Clearance from Singapore.

http://travel.state....1.html?cid=3667

Should be able to get now.. Note police certs are considered valid for 1 year..

As of November 2010, Singapore officially no longer issues CNCC's to non-Singapore citizens. The US DOS doesn't seem to understand this yet (or at least, they don't acknowledge it). It's very nerve wracking.

At US Embassy in Manila, I've read of at least 2 recent cases where the applicant did not submit the Singapore clearance. They presented either an email response from the Singapore Police or a print out of the policy change from their website.

You can see it here:
