Certificate of Standing
Singapore solicitors seeking admission to work in another jurisdiction may require a Certificate of Standing from the Law Society of Singapore (“LSS”).

Requests for inclusion of additional information on top of a standard Certificate of Standing application must be made in writing and/or by e-mail to LSS together with the duly completed application form. Additional administrative fees are payable for such requests.
The application fee for a standard Certificate of Standing is S$200.00 (for members) and S$500.00 (for non-members). The time taken to process a standard Certificate of Standing is 7 working days. A customised Certificate of Standing will cost an additional $107.00 on top of the standard application fee. A copy of the Certificate of Standing Charges may be found here.
