Change job for malaysia work permit holder

Post by Qwerty123456 » Fri, 01 May 2020 11:52 am

Hi i have a job offer and am considering to change job. I am malaysian holding work permit pass

I would like to ask if i resign from my current job, do i need to return to malaysia after my wp is cancelled? Or can i stay in singapore on the 2 weeks special pass while waiting for my new employer to issue my work permit so i can start work? My employer will apply for wp to get IPA first.

Many thanks in advance.

If you have a Special Pass, you can stay until the date of expiry listed on the Special Pass :)

Refer to the MOM site here: ... ork-permit

Under the How to Cancel section, Step 2 says that after the employer cancels the work permit, he/she may 'print the Special Pass...allows the worker to stay in Singapore before leaving.'
