Before cancelling

Before booking the flight, please check:

  • Whether your airline has any requirements for boarding, such as pre-departure COVID-19 tests, and ensure that you comply with them. Otherwise, you may not be allowed to board.
  • The home country's or region's embassy website for entry requirements. Alternatively, you may refer to MFA’s travel guides.

How to cancel

To cancel a pass:

  1. Make an appointment to visit our Employment Pass Services Centre for the cancellation.
  2. Under Employment Pass holders & Dependants, choose Pass Issuance / Renewal / Cancellation.
  3. Once the pass is cancelled, you will receive a Short-Term Visit Pass (STVP) by email. The STVP grants a valid stay for up to 30 days from the date of application.

Please print out your STVP and show it to the immigration officer, together with a valid passport, when leaving Singapore. You should make arrangements to leave Singapore before the STVP expires.

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