COVID-19 precautionary measures for Work Holiday Pass holders

Actions to be taken by Work Holiday Pass (WHP) holders if they wish to enter Singapore from 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 a Stay-Home Notice (SHN).

However, those conveying essential services or supplies (e.g. lorry drivers, vegetable or frozen 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, you must:

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