Can a single person adopt a child in Singapore? Yes, singles go through the same child adoption process as couples. But the HSR processing time for singles can be longer than that for couples. However, if you fulfill all the requirements, you should be able to obtain the HSR and adopt. Once the HSR is approved, there should be no issue with the Dependent’s Pass approval and adoption order and citizenship.

Single female can adopt boy or girl. Single male can only adopt boys.
