Employment Pass (E-Pass) Lost/Stolen in Singapore

One day early in the morning, a friend called to help, ID card lost, how do? what! The following is the correct practice of being a citizen or PR in Singapore where you lost your identity card (IC) or Employment pass.

According to ICA you need to apply for New E-Pass within 7 days. If you think that ICA is not Lost but stolen than you also need to report to POLICE. It is better to go ICA office first before reporting stolen id to Police.

However, the safety is still recommended must report lost id also to police station if in case it is used by someone else to do some miserable thing, you must have proof to show to authorities to clear up your shoulders some of examples how lost id's can be used.

Example 1: a man lost his identity card, in two weeks after the discovery of someone using his identity card, to borrow money.

Example 2: one lost ID card, was taken to sign three mobile phone numbers, and later received the telecommunications company's bill, to recover thousands of dollars in telephone charges.

The E-Pass is only replaced when it is lost, stolen or damaged.

Reporting Lost ID:

ICA reporting lost official procedure.

If you think that ICA is not stolen just lost than you could directly go to ICA building.
After arriving at ICA, go to Citizen Services Center on the 3rd floor and fill in a Statutory Declaration. It includes the name, date of birth, IC number, address, contact number, and when Where lost IC, or is it lost before or not.

Download the application from here.

You can download at home to fill out the first, in case you worried about the level of English is not good enough, it is strongly recommended to do so (Note: If you have already report to the police station, than bring the report also).

A passport size of the recent (3 months) photos, pay attention to be background colored white, can not wear uniforms while taking photo.

ICA will call you in Interview and ask some questions after that you need to follow the procedure to get new card.

PR also need to bring Entry and / or Re-Entry Permits, expired or valid passports, proof of identity (if any), Malaysians need to bring the Malaysian IC.

Loss and processing time:

First lost IC
fee: 100 sgd
Processing time: 1 month

Second and after that lost IC
fee: 300 sgd
time: 3 months

From the cost and processing time, the government wants everyone to be more careful, do not think that IC lost does not matters. I will explain the procedure of getting new card by applying online and counter application Later.


If you get a new IC, the old and suddenly found, according to ICA regulations, you have bring it to ICA.

In addition to losing IC, if your IC is damaged, or to change personal information (including name, photos, etc.), you can apply for a new IC.

Is Employer have Right to Keep Worker Passport in Singapore?

Many people work in Singapore seems to be in some industries will have to handover their passport, but this is really right? Do these bosses really have the right to keep your passport?

After the news from the experts and the Singapore Ministry of Manpower: the answer is "no"

Photo: Singapore MOM

But in fact many employers in order to manage and security considerations, will help workers keep their passports; taking into account the passport is easy to lose, there are workers willing to let employers keep the passport situation.

But no matter what the way, the premise is that if the need for a passport, the employer must be unconditionally returned to the workers.

If you have any questions you can call at any time: Call MOM at 6438 5122 to get help

2017 New Rental regulations: Casual rental is illegal

Singapore Just announced a new private home rental law: from now on, if your private house rental period is less than 6 months , then you are illegal, unless you have URA (Urban Renewal Authority) special certification!

The latest Act 2017 Singapore Condo New Rules

Limitation for rentals

A  private house with no relatives of each other must be less than or equal to 6 people (Prior to the law provides for eight individuals), if more than the number of rental housing will be regarded as illegal business dormitory . The owner will be fined up to  Singaporean $ 500,000 or imprisoned (the previous law provides for S $ 200,000).

After the two laws issued, you dare to rent it illegal?

Reasons for the introduction of the new law:

It is reported that the reason why the Parlimant to launch the two decrees, mainly because last year the public complaints of short-term rent increases, URA in 2016, received a total of 608 complaints, compared with 377 in 2015 more 61%!

In addition to private residential property, the latest Act also gives the URA more power to monitor the work of estate developers, and strive to make the new buildings more suitable for people to live in and out.

The URA is also considering a new category of homes to allow short-term rentals, but the shortest lease for all private homes is still required to be no less than six months prior to the current program.

Private rental for the relevant issues, we can refer to the following:

Q1.If I rent a house through Airbnb and other sites short-term illegal?

Since the house must be tenable for six months, it is not currently permitted by law, regardless of how popular these short-term rental media are. Under the Planning Act, the illegal rental of private property owners will face a maximum penalty of 40000 s$, or imprisonment up to 12 months, or both.

Q2. Do I need to check my tenant's identity and personal documents?

Whether or not a homeowner has a housing agent, he should obtain tenants and other household documents and information. These documents include passports, work permits, employment permits, etc., and the owner should keep a photocopy.

In order to avoid offenses of harboring illegal immigrants, it is best for the owner to personally verify the identity of the tenant and to ensure the authenticity of the information. Homeowners can check whether tenants are legally residing using the Immigration & Checkpoints Authority (ICA) website, and check the validity of the work permit and Dependent Pass (DV) of the tenants at the Ministry of Manpower website.

According to the Immigration Act, anyone who leases a home to overstayers or illegal immigrants may be liable to imprisonment for a term of up to two years or a fine of up to $ 6,000, or both.

Q3. Can my tenant sublet the house to another tenant?

No. As a matter of fact, the general tenancy will stipulate that the tenant can not sublet or sublet the house, and the house is for residential use only. The homeowner must be aware of who lives in the house and whether the tenant is legally using it.

Once the tenant sublet or sublet the house, the owner of the house control may be "out of control"  If the house become illegal use, or illegal rent, the owner should take legal responsibility.
