STVP days after EP Cancellation

Post by daria1 » Sat, 05 Feb 2022 12:16 pm

I was under the impression that STVP would be issued for 30 days after EP cancellation. My EP was cancelled last week and I was given 60 days. Anyone know why this is so?

Probably due to no current travel lanes open to your country at the moment? But, yes, under normal non-pandemic times it is 30 days. Conjecture again, but who knows, maybe not condescending enough.....

Can somebody else confirm the above poster's statement about end of EP STVP? This is good news.

News only (not firsthand) but appears to be the case?

Both women are racing against the clock to find a new job in Singapore, after their employment passes were cancelled with their departure from Meta.

They are now on short-term visit passes valid for the next 90 days, during which they have to find a job or return home.

Is the STVP issued a multiple entry-visa? Can one travel out of Singapore on STVP?

I imagine it is a visa exemption (visit pass) rather than a visa — the same thing you get upon entry as a tourist from a visa exempt country (which is also up to 90 days, depending on the passport).

I would also imagine the same rules about entry/exit would apply — expect scrutiny if making border runs and you’ll likely need proof of onward travel.

STVP are only single entry. This is why it's dangerous to try to make a visa run as you can easily be refused entry (the STVP that is issued at the end of employment is single use only.

Whether you’d get away with it or not would probably depend on a few things. Let’s say the person in question made a trip to JB. Upon reentry, if they could show a confirmed flight out of Singapore within their normal SVP limit… they probably have a reasonable shot at getting a fresh stamp in their passport (especially if it’s a tier 1 passport). However, if they later changed the dates on their flight and tried to do that again… at the very least, they can expect a lot of questions and at least a warning. I hesitate to guess what would happen if they tried it a third time, their luck will run out eventually.
