Need help regarding IPA letter for S Pass

Hi All,

This is Suman Kumar from India and recently i got my IPA letter forwarded by my future Singapore employer for S pass. The IPA letter says
"Your employer must ask for your S pass to be issued by 05 Aug 2018 . Otherwise we will withdraw this approval"
Now due to some issue i will only be able to travel by 23rd July and i also booked the tickets for the same. Now my concern is will i be able to complete the procedures before 05 Aug? As i got to know from my employer that, once i landed
- on 23rd itself they have appointment with Clinic for medical checkup (4-6 days)
- After the medical report as FIT FOR EMPLOYMENT, they will take Appointment with MOM for Pass

So i need suggestion that will i be able to complete the procedures before 05 Aug? Or is there any other step i missing here apart from the above 2?

Also please let me know, The last date mentioned on the IPA is 05 Aug 2018
- Is the last date that I am supposed to complete the medical and apply for the S pass to MOM ?
- Or is the last date for acquiring the S pass from MOM ? If this is true then, what will be the time frame between applying and getting the pass?

And from MOM site a page mentioned that employer can ask for extending the IPA upto 1 month.
Is extension is easy or complex process? If applied, how much time MOM requires to decide the result?

Shouldn’t be an issue if you come on July 23, 2018. Within a day or two can do your medical checkups which result will be shared by the clinic in 48 hours. Your employer has enough time to complete the documentation and later they will fix a date for you to visit MoM to do other formalities. Good luck

So Surya, medical report will be out in max 48 hours?
And Also please let me know, The last date mentioned on the IPA is 05 Aug 2018
- Is the last date that I am supposed to complete the medical and apply for the S pass to MOM ?
- Or is the last date for acquiring the S pass from MOM ? If this is true then, what will be the time frame between applying and getting the pass?

It can be available in 48 hours to 3 to 4 days depends on urgency.

IPA letter stating that 5th August which means your employer should apply for the work pass card and get the appointment for you to visit MoM to do the necessary things before this date. The entire process can be done in a week (5 business days) or so, then wait to receive the card (this is not an issue with the date mentioned in your IPA letter).

Thanks Surya
