Buy an airline ticket and leave. Make sure you present the AIP letter again when you return. No big deal as long as you return within the validity period.

Thanks for your help.....my validity to stay in Singapore is another 20 days from today(13th Jan) i have not got the EP yet.., so if i don't come back in that date should i ask my employer to apply a new IPA letter....rite now i have not collected my EP...bcos i have not got issuance letter/endorsed IPA letter from my employer..

Ideally even if i don't come back in that period i can still enter Singapore in future on different employer sponsorship or same employer sponsorship.

i dont need to do any tax filing here as i have not my EP collected from MOM.?

waiting for your reply...

The IPA has the validity on it. It may not be the same as your current social visit pass. If you cannot make it back before the expiry of the IPA then yes, you will have to have the employer or new employer, as the case may be.

Yes you can enter Singapore again using a different employer and a different IPA if granted.

No, you do not need to do any tax clearance as you have not been issued a work visa yet.

Pl can yu tell me will I get the new EP or IPA letter in future to coming to Singapore?

Yes you can enter Singapore again using a different employer and a different IPA if granted.

Or should I call/email to MOM that I won't be collecting My EP(p1) bcos I left Singapore in just one week even without starting the work.

But the concern is that I did not inform my employer that I'm leaving Singapore as they had not given/provided me what they have told me,ideally I did not like the way they behaved with me on the first day of my joining,they are unprofessional..

Please advice..

Thanks for your help..

You said you have been "joining them" before you got your EP?
That's called illegal working and can get you into deep shit. Don't mention this to anybody, especially the authorities! Also, don't collect any money from your employer!
Not following the rules now will burn your chance of ever working in Singapore again!
Thus better officially resign from your job (following the termination procedure and period stated in your contract) and have the EP application cancelled properly - this is usually done by the employer after your resignation, but you can also submit your resignation letter (with endorsement from the employer!) to them yourself.
Good luck!

Methinks the OP's original post is not exactly what it seems to be, based on subsequent posts....... sounds like both the employer and the OP are not being totally honest here. :-k :^o
