I am the father of a non-Singapore Citizen child. Am I eligible for shared parental leave?

No. Eligibility for shared parental leave is based on the child’s citizenship status, not the parents’.

However, should the child obtain Singapore Citizenship status within 12 months from delivery, you will be eligible for shared parental leave if you meet all other eligibility criteria.

Shared parental leave will have to be consumed within 12 months of the child’s birth.
