Failure to comply with the prevailing Circuit Breaker or movement restriction measures may lead to revocation of work passes and/or withdrawal of work pass privileges.
In line with the prevailing Circuit Breaker measures, only companies which have been approved by MTI to carry out essential services can proceed with works involving their foreign employees during the Circuit Breaker period.
Before commencing any essential activities, you must ensure that:
- Your company has been granted general or time-limited exemption from MTI’s suspension of Business Activities; AND
- Only the employees (both local and foreign workforce) submitted to MTI can perform those essential activities.
Apply to MTI for general or time-limited exemption at https://covid.gobusiness.gov.sg.
No re-application is needed.
Employers, whose foreign workers have been approved by MTI to carry out essential services during the Circuit Breaker period, can continue these works, unless they receive an email notification informing them that their approvals have been terminated by MTI.
