Renewal Passport Before Issuing S-Pass

Postby octoberafternoon » Sat, 07 Nov 2015 6:46 pm

Hi,

I need information. My company applied S-Pass (Granted for 6 Months) for me on end of September, and then approved on middle of October. Since my passport at that time (when approved) already 6 Months before expiry date, the employer told me to renewal passport first, and then notify the MoM when issuing the S-Pass card. Because in the letter there is a requirement that the passport must at least 7 months before expiry date. So, when I want to issuing S-Pass, which Passport I need to bring? Just the new one? Or the old one also? Thank you very much.

Hi,

Thank you for the answer. Btw, could I ask some questions again?

1. S-Pass needs insurance medical. The employer already sign up for that last Wednesday. Usually, how long it takes to get the insurance settled?

2. When issuing the card, I need to take a photo and finger print. Is the schedule already arranged by MoM? or I can choose based on my availability?

Once again, thank you for share the information and answer my questions. Happy Sunday! :)

1l) About that. Dipending on what was required in the AIP letter (sometimes it's only a statement (westerners normally) to maybe a HIV & TB test, or just a TB or just an HIV test.

Schedule will be arranged between employer and MoM. You employer will keep you informed.

No, I mean not the medical examination. But, the medical insurance. From what I know, S-Pass needs Medical Insurance that cover at least $15,000/year for the Pass Holder. Nah, usually for registeration until the insurance policy number is out, how long it takes? Thank you.

Should only take a couple of days. Depending on how the employer pays for it.

usually they just see the passport, education certificate etc or carefully compare the original with the scanned one which submitted?
