What is in-principle approval
An in-principle approval (IPA) is one of the requirements for you to bring migrant workers into Singapore.
You will get an IPA letter when your worker's Work Permit application is approved.
The validity of the IPA will be mentioned in the letter. This is the window you have to bring the worker into Singapore.
To check the IPA validity, use Work Permit or IPA Validity Check via WP Online (Non-login).

Processing time: Immediate
You can extend the IPA for up to 1 month if you need more time. You are allowed to extend the IPA only once.
To extend an IPA, log in to WP Online to make the request at least 1 week before the IPA expires.
If approved, you can print the extended IPA online.
