Four More Work Passes Revoked for Breaching Stay-Home Notice Requirements

  1. The Ministry of Manpower (MOM) has revoked the work passes of four more work pass holders for breaching Stay-Home Notice (SHN) requirements in the past three months. They had left their places of residence without valid reasons and without seeking MOM’s permission during the period of SHN. Among the four, three are work permit holders and one is an S-Pass holder. Two work pass holders who left their SHN residences were detected by the MOM-issued Smartwatch. The other two work pass holders, who served SHN at dedicated facilities and were not required to wear the Smartwatch, were reported by a member of public and an employer.
  2. Since 1 May 2020, MOM has revoked 44 Work Passes for breach of SHN requirements. The majority of work pass holders have complied with these requirements to help us safeguard the health and safety of our population. 
  3. MOM reminds all work pass holders and their employers to comply with the QO or SHN requirements. Those who fail to do so, including persons who tamper and/or remove the electronic monitoring device during the QO or SHN period, will be liable to prosecution under the Infectious Diseases (COVID-19 – Stay Orders) Regulations 2020. MOM will continue to take enforcement actions against work pass holders who do not comply with the requirements, including the revocation of work passes.
