Thank you so much!! This is what I indicated when I declared "YES" to being prohibited in SG. Sent the application form back to HR and they didn't ask me any questions or clarifications about it. Next thing I know, my SPASS has been approved!!

Now onto the next step!

Fill the form 14A, http://www.ica.gov.sg/e_services_overvi ... pageid=291

Attach a copy of the local sponsor's IC, and a cover letter explaining what happened during the previous visit, and if they had stamped anything on the passport, copy that page, and send by post. No email submissions are accepted, from what I know. Alternate is for the sponsor to go personally and submit it at ICA.


I will try if HR is willing to be the local sponsor since there's an IPA already, and have them write the letter of appeal for re-entry on my behalf since they are hiring me. They may already have written similar letters for visa requirements. Is there also a form that sponsor needs to fill out or none?

No other story. Crossing my fingers!!! Wish me luck!! Thank you so much for all the help!!

Most Singapore HR folks don't like to get involved in such matters, especially if it's a small company ....

No harm trying, though have a Plan B.

I think there is a standard letter in ica website .. I will PM you the link later.

Thank you, I appreciate it.

I called ICA call center and I was told that the hiring company should write the appeal letter on my behalf, requesting to allow entry for employment purposes and that the hiring company should fill out form V39I and attach an IC (front/back). And on my part, I should fill out form 14, attach the paper they gave me when they refused entry and my passport.

However, upon checking form V39I, it's a visit pass/student pass form and some of the clauses got me worried, it states:

- he/she shall not engaged in any form of employment paid or unpaid, or in any business, profession or occupation, or in any activity which, in the opinion of the Controller of Immigration, is detrimental to the security, reputation and well-being of Singapore;


This means I can still work right, just as long as its not "detrimental to the security, reputation and well-being of Singapore" ?


- I/We further agree to furnish the Immigration & Checkpoints Authority a Security Deposit of $ ________ in the form of Banker’s Guarantee/Cashier’s Order as a condition for the approval of a Visit Pass/Student’s Pass valid for ___________ months and understand that a breach of any or all of the aforesaid conditions will render the Security Deposit being forfeited.


Is this necessary? I'm not sure the employer would be on board with this. :(

UPDATE: The company decided not to hire me as they did not want to go thru the trouble of appealing. :(

Guess I'll have to apply elsewhere. Huhu

May I know why you didn't try to enter Singapore with just your IPA?

Hi, sorry for interrupting, somehow same case here.

Recently this last March 24, me and my sister got A to A and send us back home here in the Philippines, we're from KL that time due to SVP expiration. Our passport doesn't have stamp or anything, just a letter inserted in our passport (Notice of Refusal of Entry)

And now we're still applying online. This week, a small Interior firm wants me to work as home-based Architect but I need to be in Singapore to do some site visits, so he is willing to apply me, but I told him that I got A to A.

As of now, I forward the Form 14 and V391 for him to check it.

Just asking if what is the 1st step? His firm is a newbie but registered builder in Singapore and he has no HR to manage my application. Do he need to apply me spass first before making an appeal to the ICA?
