I am over the age of 21 and would like to know if I have the rights to claim my passport from one of my parents. Is it an offense for them to keep my passport and not want to hand it over to me?

    Yes. Under the Passports Act, it is an offence to retain possession or control a passport that was not issued to him. For more information, you may refer to s 41(4) of the Act: https://sso.agc.gov.sg/Act/PA2007#pr41-
