Immigration and Visa

I have an Employment Pass (EP). What happens if I am terminated from my job?

What happens if you loose your job while on Employment Pass in Singapore? What options do you have?


Your Employment Pass (EP) is canceled immediately. You then have 30 days to find a new job and obtain a new Employment Pass, failing which you will need to leave Singapore.

In the scenario that your termination is sudden or if you do not have the necessary time to cancel your work visa, you may be issued a 30-day short term visit pass to settle anything outstanding. During departure from Singapore, you will be asked to return the short term pass to the Immigration officer.

You need to know that your salary will be withheld by your employer for tax clearance with IRAS. Your salary will only be paid once IRAS issues a Tax Clearance Certificate after assessment. This is to ensure that your tax liabilities have been accounted for.
