Dunno where you are from, and dunno where you are going, but if you head to MOM, and ask - they can chop a 14 day or 30 day extension ... if your story holds ..

But if you insist on going back home, well, what is the reason about your worrying about not being allowed back in ?? :(

If I was in your position (and boy, I have been in your position more than once) I would rethink my priorities and put off visiting the parents ..

Mostly your IPA letter will have a Single Journey Visa that will allow you to enter Singapore.

Ask your employer to issue your EP Online. In that case it will have an additional letter (visa) which you can use to enter and exit Singapore till you collect your EP Card.

@ecureilx. Believe me. I really would like to take that option of postponing. But the situation is forcing me to visit this time.

When your EP is issued and when you have a pending card collection, you would not need a Visa, as the Visa would be present in the IPA letter (EP approval Letter). You can use that to enter and leave singapore, till you collect your EP card.

I think I have already highlighted this to you and you are reposting the same question in a different way.

If you are so confused, please call the MOM Help Desk and they will be able to guide you clearly.

May be you will be happy after you hear it directly from them. Any way it is good to confirm from them also.
