COVID-19 precautionary measures for PEP holders

Actions to be taken by Personalised Employment Pass (PEP) holders (who do not have an employer) if they or their dependants are currently overseas.

As we resume activities in phases post-Circuit Breaker, find out what are the current work pass requirements.

All pass holders must obtain entry approvals from the relevant government agencies to enter Singapore. Upon entry, they need to serve Stay-Home Notice (SHN).

However, those conveying essential services or supplies (e.g. lorry drivers or vegetable supply truckers) coming from Malaysia by land or sea crossing are exempted from the entry approval and SHN requirements.

To request for MOM’s entry approval for you or your dependants to enter Singapore, you must: 

  1. Ensure you can fulfil the additional requirements and responsibilities to enter Singapore. This includes paying for your COVID-19 test and stay at the dedicated SHN facility, if applicable. 

    If you have dependants who are not issued any work passes, including Letter of Consent, you must also fulfil your responsibilities towards them
  2. Use our entry approval calculator to plan when to request for MOM’s entry approval. Requests received by 12pm are for arrivals within the next 30 days. 
  3. Ensure there are available flights/transport and your dependants and you can travel to Singapore on the planned arrival date before requesting for MOM’s entry approval.

    If the request is approved, please note that you must pay for the COVID-19 test and stay at the dedicated SHN facility, if applicable, even if your dependants and you do not enter Singapore as planned.
