When to cancel the pass

You need to cancel your pass if:

  • You are unemployed for more than 6 months. 
  • You have left Singapore permanently – you must cancel the pass within 1 week from your departure date

You do not need to cancel the pass if:

  • You change employers (you only need to notify us)
  • You become a Singapore permanent resident 
  • Your pass has expired. As long as you are still in Singapore, you need to request for a Short-Term Visit Pass (STVP) to give yourself a valid stay in the meantime. Otherwise, an overstaying fine will be imposed.

Before cancelling

Your employer must seek tax clearance from the Inland Revenue Authority of Singapore (IRAS) at least 1 month before you leave the job.

How to cancel

Log in to EP eService on myMOM Portal to cancel the pass.

For pass holders who are still in Singapore, you can request for an STVP in the eService to grant yourself a valid stay for up to 90 days from the date of application.

You will receive the STVP by email. You need to show the STVP and a valid passport to the immigration officer when leaving Singapore.

Once the pass is cancelled, please cut the pass card in half and discard it to prevent misuse.
