Advise required on EP Pass collection

Post by Rammy » Thu, 28 Jul 2011 1:45 am

Hi all,

I am a new member...And Just moved to Singapore after the recent approval of my EP. But I have an issue related to this.My EP was applied using my old passport 3 months ago. But after applying, when I was on a business visit to Singapore, I was refused entry because of my damaged passport(The lamination came off).I went back to India ,got a new passport, meantime my EP was approved. So I came back to Singapore. But for the pass collection, in my in-principle approval letter declaration form, I cannot say I have never been refused entry or travelled through different passsport(old one). But If i have to mention that in declaration, it is given in the letter that if there are discrepancies then the employer must re-feed the correct info(new passport no) thru isubmit MOM site. Is it the right procedure or shall I go directly to the Pass collection center with my new passport and old passport and in principle approval letter. Whew....This is confusing..Kindly advise. Sorry abt this huge Explanation. But Please. Someone advise...

Call ICA and ask, but I expect it will be sufficient if you give them all the explanation at the time you collect your EP. The bottom line is, you did not omitted these information in your application but they are from the circumstances arose after the papers were filed.

Just take you old and new passports with you when you collect the EP.

I did similar when I got my PEP, my passport changed from the one I was given the IPA for, so I just took both with me when I went down to collect and there was no issue, they just stamped in my new passport that I previously travelled on the old number and that was it

JayCee, that's too much like using common sense. These are the new master's degree holders. Heaven forbid they use common sense. :wink:

Don't forget that common sense is the less common of all senses!
