joshuaday11 It looks like right of entry allows social visits only and not study or work. While avoiding NS is not illegal, evading or the attempt to evade NS is illegal. The mother’s attempt at renunciation, yet wanting the whole family to stay in Singapore on the spouse’s EP tantamount to attempt ...

Singaporeflyer [So are they selectively issuing invitations for students?] I cannot confirm but I have heard that students in secondary schools or polytechnics do get invitations under a different scheme which is NS liable. New graduates (not undergraduates/students) used to get invitations on getti...

The PM has stated that Singapore will maintain its ethnicity ratio. The 2010 population census indicated percentage decreases of Chinese and Malays relative to percentage increase in Indians and others. Their decrease means that priority for PR will now be given to those ethnicities. After all, PRs ...

Mad Scientist

Drama huh?
Dear Oh dear! Did I say that the system was flawed? How DARE…. I ?

Anyway would you care to give the likely scenario, if say, Y did not take any action and go to MOM with an expired SP? Thanks.

Thank you Saint. Going to ICA was definitely first choice but there were ………..why Y couldn’t make it then. Fortunately ...…. The expired SP must be surrendered to ICA which will then issue a letter in lieu, which MOM will retain, in exchange for an EP. Finally the missing link I was searching for is...

Single Entry Visas are issued to those who come from countries that require visas to enter Singapore. Therefore their applications, if any, for SVPs etc. need local sponsorship.
The above are not applicable to foreigners who can obtain social passes at entry points. Thanks again.

Thank you singaporeflyer. My understanding here, is that if there is this Single Entry Visa then Y does not need to leave Singapore. Otherwise there is no choice but to leave and come back to collect social visit pass first as time is running out. Given that Y has been experiencing strokes of luck l...

{Since you say collection of EP i assume the EP is approved. In this case can you check if there was a Single Entry Visa that is attached in the IPA? If you are going to exchange the SP for an EP, and if the EP was approved through online the employer has to do an issue pass before the employee goes...
