  • Implementation time frame: April 3, 2020.
  • Visas/permits affected: Personalised Employment Passes, Entrepreneur Passes, related passes such as Dependant Passes and Long Term Visit Passes and Miscellaneous Work Passes.
  • Who is affected: Foreign nationals and employers applying for any of the above passes.
  • Next steps: Applications can continue to be submitted via SingPost through April 2, after which, all applications must be submitted electronically through the MOM website.
