While researching signing up for DEERS and obtaining a Military ID, I found that the Navy Facility in Singapore does them daily whereas the Embassy in Manila currently only does it for 3 hours on two days a month and it's nearly impossible to get an appointment.


Navy Region Center Singapore (NRCS) has appointments available daily and they appear to have openings everyday.


Here is a direct link to NRCS where you can make an appointment for DEERS enrollment and ID Cards. https://rapids-appointments.dmdc.osd.mil/appointment/building.aspx?BuildingId=514

When we went in April, I tried to get in there. The online registration only lists certain categories for eligibility and retired is not one of them. It looks like the Singapore one is only for active duty personnel. The PDF you quoted is a generic Navy Lodge form. Retired, leisure travel personnel are not allowed in the Singapore one. But, we stayed in the Grand Mercure hotel, which was really nice for the same price. Mall right across the street and plenty of eating places within walking distance.


I might be wrong.... I just now tried it and got to the point of registration, so maybe it's changed. But if you do stay there, it's about an hour from town and I didn't see anything to do in the area around their compound.

My wife got her ID card today at Sembawang Navy Activity, Singapore.


I booked a room at the Navy Gateway Inn and Suites no problem, and I'm retired. The room was 165.00 US, and was actually a 3 bedroom apartment. It was absolutely huge.  There are no restaurants nearby, but there are places that deliver, McDonald's, KFC, etc.


Since checkout is 11 am, we checked out early, took our bags over to the NGIS main office and they held them for us until we finished.  Caught a shuttle van to the base, showed the gate guard her passport, she got a temp ID and we went to the ID card section.  Its probably 30 meters from the gate, if that.  Same building as the Navy Exchange.


Took about 15 minutes, she had her ID card and was in the exchange spending  money.  The whole process was absolutely painless, the folks at NGIS and ID card section are great.  The cost for the taxi ride from the airport to NGIS was about 40.00 SGD, around 28.00 US.

Next March we will have to get my wife's ID renewed again. I noticed on the rapids appointment site that there are no openings for appointments all the way through 2018. @streak03 Did you make an appointment, or are they doing walk-ins now?

I just called them.  Folks there are very nice and easy to deal with, I dont believe they do a whole lot of ID cards there.  Very painless process.
