My son is in hospital for a long haul and can't physically collect his new ic. Sent message to seek further assistance to ICA and received standard reply same as what is on the website. Said they won't entertain as the answer can be found on their website. Their website stated that must personally collect as they need to verify the person's identity.

I asked hospital to grant him leave about 1 hour to go collect ss I arranged for collection at the nearest post office to the hospital but they refused and gave me a doctor's letter stating that he's in hospital and asked ICA to let me collect on his behalf.

Both sides not giving way. What can I do? If not collected within 3 months, ICA will destroy the IC. Already 1 month gone.
Please advise.

I never heard ic will be destroyed after if not collected.

The most is have to ownself have to reschedule appointment, which might not be the date that ts desired.

If the hospital can't even grant him ts son (assuming ts is not trolling) permission to go to a office post, what more lavender?
I saw post#7 str8 away I can tell either you din read ts’ post or you got problem understanding basic simple Engrish. I think the latter is more likely.
You dun want go Lavender ask
Understand who I’m talking about when I ask β€œYou”. :look:

ts, I think really boh bian you have to bring the doctor’s letter then find 2 hrs go Lavender 6th floor and ask the counter person huat to do for your son’s case. Maybe (just saying) just maybe they may grant another 3 months for the collection of the ic. :look:

the email and call situation I also encountered b4. Can email and call and wait till pek cek they just won’t reply one so I can understand the frustration here:look:

Do you need the NRIC now? Destroy liao remake is the normal or more ex price? Son unlikely to be discharged in the next 2 months?

Cannot settle privately then ask publicly on FB lor. If it goes viral, very fast will have solution.

you have two option.
A, go find your hospital social worker and get help, they can and have the power to do so.

B, find your mp, they can and have the power to do so.

Is this your child's first IC at 15?

Then shouldn't it be sent to his secondary school for collection? If so then school should be able to hold on to it longer or at least they will be more sympathetic towards your situation and help bring your case up.
