The government has announced that most immigration services and processes are to be accessed online from April 7 through May 4 in an ongoing effort to mitigate the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

Key Points:

  • Individuals should use e-services (MyICA) for Immigration & Checkpoints Authority (ICA) transactions. In-person services for urgent cases are only available by appointment.
  • The Employment Pass Service Centre is closed, and pass holders unable to proceed with card registration or collection can remain in Singapore with their Notification Letter or Card Replacement Letter.
  • Card delivery services are suspended.
  • Most work and dependent passes expiring from April 6 to May 5 will be extended to June 5.

Additional information: ICA’s e-appointment service is suspended, though call center services (6391 6100) will still be available. Those with ICA appointments on or after April 7 must postpone visiting the ICA building until after May 4. Please visit the Ministry of Manpower’s website for more information on work permit-related services.
