Entry to Sg by IPA holders

Post by surgwide » Thu, 29 Jul 2021 6:56 am

Dear All,

I just got Employment Pass approve for the first time.
So, I checked on this website as it said between New Entry application and Exisitng Approved Entry.

https://safetravel.ica.gov.sg/wphl/overview

I will fly over from london, so my question is what type of my IPA belongs to new entry or exisitng approved?

existing approved IPA. But ensure your IPA still has at least 15 days of validity from your arrival date, otherwise you need to get it extended.

You need to submit New Entry application as this is your first entry and first submission.

Existing Approved entry for those who have been granted entry approval earlier in May-June, but their entry was canceled/postponed due to the new restrictions in May.

Can you keep us posted when you've gotten the entry approval? I've a friend with IPA who hasn't been able to get a slot for entry as yet.

I stand corrected. The site and the OP's initial post caught off guard. I had to go read the site 3 more times before it made any sense. So yeah, ololo is spot on.
