EP Approved - Visa Stamping

Postby ksaleem » Thu, 31 May 2018 1:17 pm

Hey Guys,

I recently got my EP approved and now waiting for the EP card to be delivered. However I have a question and hoping someone in this forum can answer.

1. Once i get the card is that all I need to travel in and out of singapore?
2. How can I get the visa stamped on my passport?

Thanks,
Khurram

1. You will still need to carry your EP and passport.
2. There is no visa stamped on your passport.

Thank you for the prompt reply, appreciate that.

When you say : you still need your EP, are you referring to the Card or IPA letter?

2. Since Im from Pakistan and I need visa to travel to Singapore, so all I need is to show the EP card when traveling back to Singapore?

Yes you will have to carry the EP card as proof of your residency in Singapore

The first time in to Singapore can be accomplished with the IPA letter and your passport. After you have arrived and are issued the relevant work pass, then if you leave Singapore you need to use both your passport and your work pass. (the IPA letter is only good for the initial journey to Singapore).

Thank you for the reply, so after getting the card, when i travel back to Singapore I need my passport and the EP Card, correct? No need for the visa?

The EP Card on the other side has the multiple entry visa.

You won't get the card until you come to Singapore as you have to have a health checkup fingerprinted and so forth. Only then will you be issued with the pass. So, once you are here and have the card issued, then you can leave and return without a visa as long as the card is valid.
