Holders of an NRIC are responsible for the card’s custody but are not required to carry the card on their person. Areas that will require NRICs to be verified include passports (immigration officers), polling stations (police officers) and those who undergo National Service in Singapore’s Armed Forces, police force and civil defence force.[3] Notwithstanding this, if no identification can be produced the police may detain suspicious individuals until such identification can be produced either in person or by proxy. It is also a requirement to re-register NRICs when 30 years old after completing the National Service.
