The above updates are not screened by SNB staff and hence please ensure accuracy when updating all your particulars, especially your residential address.   

(B) For changes to your Contact details

Updates to contact details such as Contact numbers, Residential Addresses (Other Address in Singapore and Foreign Address) and Preferred Mailing Address are not screened by SNB staff.

For Singaporeans and Singapore Permanent Residents, please proceed to the police station or Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA) to update the address on your NRIC.

However, please allow some time for system updates and check via your SNB login account that both your new address and your preferred mailing address are reflected correctly.

Do note that OSCAR will only inform the new address to SNB for nurses/ midwives who have already updated their residency status and NRIC number with SNB.

For Foreigners currently working in Singapore, please login via SNB website to update your residential address under the “Administration/Update Particulars” section. Please enter your residential address under “Other Address In Singapore” and to select your “Preferred Mailing Address” as “Other Address In Singapore”.
