Cancel an Overseas Networks & Expertise Pass

If you are no longer working in Singapore, you need to cancel your Overseas Networks & Expertise Pass within 1 week before your departure. You can then be issued a Short-Term Visit Pass (STVP) to stay on until your departure. You do not need to cancel the pass when you change employers.  

Your current employer must seek tax clearance from the Inland Revenue Authority of Singapore (IRAS) at least 1 month before your last day of employment with them.
