Can I start work if I haven't received my work pass card but have my notification letter?

Yes. The notification letter is a temporary approval before you get your card. A valid notification letter allows you to start work and also enter or leave Singapore.

The notification letter has a validity period of 4 weeks, which is more than enough time for you to receive your work pass card.
