Irresponsible people still holidaying

Post by Desmondivana » Wed, 25 Mar 2020 4:17 pm

I still see people taking photos and sharing on instagram their holidays...well, at a time like this, I am not sure if they are acting responsibly, they are also really maxing our the medical resources available. Shouldn't let them return should they choose to holiday. :x :x

Singapore will not provide free Covid 19 care to Singapore holiday makers who catch it from today I believe.

Not only will it not be free, I believe they will also not be allowed to use their medisave balances either.

For Singapore SC/Residents who travel overseas after 27 March despite Travel advisory.

Also an easy way to lose REP or have it shortened is to falsely declare travel history.

I am not exactly sure what it means by having his REP shortened. Maybe he is on 5-year, and say, he has another 3 years to go then ICA shortened it to one year? He can then apply for renewal again and get the standard 5 years? ICA could have just revoked his PR right away, deport him after 14 days of SHN.

After all, the dude is the co-producer of Crazy Rich Asians and his dad is a tycoon in Indonesia.

Versus this guy who got his PR revoked and barred from entering again, albeit the offence is different.

Said a person posting from India to a Singapore based forum. Are you one of them or you have some different agenda?

MY guess is "enough time to get your affairs in order and leave". One year.
