I am overseas, can I prepare a Power of Attorney?

Yes, you still can prepare a Power of Attorney. When signing/executing the document, you would need to sign the document in the presence of the Consulate General at a Singapore Embassy in the country of your residence. Otherwise, you are able to sign the document at a Notary Public in the country of your residence.

However, if you are intending to prepare a Power of Attorney for Purchase, it is necessary to sign/execute the document in the presence of a Consulate-General at the Singapore Embassy of the country of your residence.

Please note the following from HDB:

*With effect from 1 March 2017, if you are using CPF monies to buy a flat, the CPF Board does not accept POAs witnessed by overseas Notary Publics. The POA must be witnessed and sealed/ stamped by an official from a Singapore Overseas Mission. You may visit the Ministry of Foreign Affairs’ website for more details on the nearest Singapore Overseas Mission.
