Appeal for renewal of a Work Permit

You can make an appeal if a Work Permit is not eligible for renewal and you would like to continue employing the worker.

Before submitting an appeal, log in to WP Online to see why we were unable to renew the Work Permit.

If your worker is a basic-skilled worker in the construction sector, you won’t be able to renew his permit if he has reached the maximum period of employment (10 years).

For such cases, if you wish to continue employing him, you can consider upgrading him to a higher-skilled worker.

How to appeal

Submit your appeal through iSubmit. Select option 7: Issuance & Renewal Matters and upload your appeal and any supporting documents.

It will take at least 3 weeks to process the appeal, depending on the complexity of the case.

Send in your appeal early. Priority will not be given to a worker whose permit is expiring or has expired. We will impose an overstaying fine if the worker does not have a valid pass to remain in Singapore.
