Leaving and coming back to Singapore with IPA Letter

Postby Mathew66 » Fri, 02 Jun 2017 6:44 pm

Hi all,

I've just spent a few months looking for a job in Singapore and I have finally had my EP approved. I will be starting on the 12th of June.

Before I start, I would like to take a short trip out of Singapore for a holiday with my wife and I was wondering if its ok to do this with only the IPA Letter (Pass will be issued after the 12th). I've been on a tourist visa so far and I've been here about 2 months (haven't left the country for those 2 months).

Do you think I could have any problems re-entering after my holiday?

Thanks!

That May be the key to risking it or not.
