As per Singapore laws, the main applicant (i.e. you) who is granted Singapore PR under the first generation PTS scheme is exempted from national service. However, all healthy male children that are granted PR status through their parents, must register for national military service when they reach the age of 16 and a half. They will be required to serve 2 years of full-time National Service followed by 40 days of Operationally Ready National Service per year until the age of 50 (for officers) or 40 years (for other ranks).
Different parents look at the National Service requirement differently. Some of them don’t mind it with the thinking that the child will be stronger and more mature after the two year service. Others are horrified at the thought of having their child go through any kind of military service. You will need to think where you stand on this issue and decide the PR application filing for your male children accordingly.
