Working in Singapore but staying at Johor

Post by JoyceTiew » Sun, 04 Aug 2019 1:26 pm

Hi, I just started working a few days ago and I am applying for my Employment Pass soon. I am currently staying in Johor and since my case is the first in my company, my employer and colleagues could not confirm what to put for my residential address prior to booking an appointment to issue my E-pass. Should my employer issue a letter regarding my stay in Johor, and for the address is it advisable to put Johor's or company's?

Be careful, what you are doing is highly illegal. I'd be careful of that employer as he's hiring illegal workers (you). By law you cannot work until you have a valid work pass. There is NO grace period while waiting for an EP/S/WP.

Doesn't matter if it's EP, S or WP. IF you are on an Employment Pass are you planning to continue to work from Johor? If so, put your Johor address. After you receive your pass if you decide to stay in Singapore, just notify the MOM that your address has changed and give them that address (the employer is able to take care of that).
Life isn't about avoiding the bruises. It's about collecting the scars to prove we showed up for it!
