The transfer has to be initiated by the gaining registrar and can be requested with the API TransferDomain command.
A valid Authorization Code must be provided to initiate a transfer successfully. You may obtain the authorization code from the losing registrar.

All contact information with the exception of registrant Name, Firstname and Organisation can be updated through the ModifyDomain command.

If the registrant is an organization from Singapore then the company registration number has to be provided as X-SG-RCBID.

SingPass ID (or NRIC) refers to the individual's National Registration Identity Card which has to consist of exactly one letter ("S", "T", "F" or "G") followed by seven digits followed by one checksum letter.
Inbound Domain Transfers
Additionally to the Authorization Code, the registry requires that the current contact information and name servers of the domain will be submitted with the transfer request. To do so, you have to use the ownercontact0, admincontact0, techcontact0 and billingcontact0 parameters and at least two name servers in the following syntax:
command = TransferDomain domain = <domain> auth = <auth> ownercontact0 = <contact handle> admincontact0 = <contact handle> techcontact0 = <contact handle> billingcontact0 = <contact handle> nameserver0 = <name server> nameserver1 = <name server>
Be sure that you've created valid contact handles with the current contact information of the .SG domain you wish to transfer the respective domain. After 7 days, the registry will reject the transfer if the losing registrar did not react.
Several registrars also need a so called AGNT number before they will approve an outgoing transfer, our AGNT number is AGNT-1643.
Outbound Domain Transfers
You need to unlock a .SG domain in order to have an Authorization Code set at the registry.
.SG domains can only be unlocked if they do not utilize the local presence service.
In order to transfer a domain away you have to remove the transfer lock (epp status clientTransferProhibited). This can only be done if the local presence service is not in use. A few minutes after removing the transfer lock you will receive an UPDATE::SUCCESSFUL message containing the new Authorization Code. At the same time the Authorization Code will be stored as property AUTH of the domain and also a property X-SG-AUTH-EXPIRATIONDATE indicating when the Authorization Code will expire (after 14 days).
Outbound Internal Transfers
If the domain should be transferred to another reseller of HEXONET the domain has also to be unlocked and the same AUTH is required.
Outbound Agent Internal Transfers
If the AGNT number of the new registrar is also AGNT-1643 but is not HEXONET you need to provide a different Authorization Code which is stored in the property X-SG-AGNT-AUTH of the domain.
Expiration of the Authorization Code
Once the Authorization Code has expired (after 14 days) the domain will be automatically locked again and a respective UPDATE::SUCCESSFUL message is created. You can simply unlock the domain again in order to request a new Authorization Code.
To delete a .SG domain with immediate effect please contact our support team at email@example.com.
