Generally, as long as long-term passes (i.e. Student's Pass, Long Term Visit Pass, Work Permit, Employment Pass and Dependant’s Pass, etc.) are valid, the pass holders are able to use their current valid passport upon seeking arrival and departure immigration clearance at the Singapore checkpoints.
However, they are advised to be mindful of the immigration requirements of any country they wish to depart, visit or place of return when travelling on a passport that is less than six months valid before embarking on their journey. Where applicable, they should also check with the airline to ensure that they are allowed to board the plane as airlines have the prerogative to issue boarding passes to their passengers.
As Singapore’s border measures and entry requirements will evolve as the global situation changes, please visit the MOH website and ICA website for the latest updates on travel and health control measures.
It is important for a long-term pass holder to renew his/her foreign passport if it is expiring. Ensuring that a passport remains valid will allow ICA to determine his/her foreign citizenship.
For all matters relating to foreign passport, please approach the respective Embassy/Consulate/Overseas Mission in Singapore.
Once a new passport is obtained, a long-term pass holder will need to update his/her new passport details with the relevant issuing authority accordingly.
ICA-issued Long Term Visit Pass (LTVP) holders are required to update his/her new passport details with ICA accordingly once he/she has been issued with a new passport.
