Singapore-Work-Pass-Cancellation-Guide

Our Singapore work pass cancellation guide would help the valid work visa holders of the country to get acquainted with the different circumstances leading to the cancellation of the pass and process that ensues thereafter.

Singapore’s status as a business and financial hub has seen many foreign professionals seek employment and entrepreneurship opportunities in the nation with the help of relevant Singapore work visas. However, there are certain circumstances under which you may have to cancel your work visa for Singapore for a variety of reasons.

Therefore, citing the need for the Singapore work visa holders to know more about the cancellation details of work pass, we have come up with this write-up that throws more light on the different situations where you may have to cancel your pass and the procedure for the same.

Circumstances Leading to the Cancellation of Work Pass

  • Resigning from your current job or terminated by current employer and planning to leave Singapore permanently.
  • Resigning from your current job or terminated by current employer and joining a new company or finding an alternative employment opportunity in Singapore.
  • Resigning from your current job to start a business in Singapore.

In case you wish to setup a business after resigning from your current job, you need to apply for the relevant pass before cancelling your existing work pass. However, if you wish to look for other employment opportunities in Singapore after resigning or getting terminated, you must cancel your existing work pass and gain the Short Term Visit Pass (STVP) which is valid for 30 days during which you can find another job in Singapore by staying in the country.

While, if you already have a new job offer, then your new employer will apply for your new work pass. Once it is approved, you can cancel the existing pass after leaving your previous company.

Procedure for Cancellation of Work Pass before Leaving Singapore

  • You can get your work pass cancelled by you in person or by your employer or by employing an agency.
  • This process can be initiated online or manually at the work pass counters of the Ministry of Manpower (MOM).
  • You need to submit your passport and a letter of work pass cancellation request from your employer stating your last day of service at the time of cancellation.
  • After verifying all the documents, MOM will issue an acknowledgement letter along with a Short Term Visit Pass (STVP), which is valid for 30 days.
  • Once your work pass gets cancelled, all other passes related to you such as the Dependent’s Pass etc will automatically get cancelled.
  • After having got the confirmation letter of cancellation of work pass, you need to return your original work pass and other passes related to you.

Once you have completed the procedure for the cancellation of your work pass, you need to obtain a tax clearance certificate from the Inland Revenue Authority Singapore (IRAS) stating that you do not have any taxes due to pay in Singapore. This certificate will be required at the time of your final departure from Singapore.
