WP/SP Renewal

Question

Dear HR Professionals,

Would like to check if staff WP/SP is up for renewal and their passport validity is less than 2 years.

Would you ask the staff to renew their passport or renew the WP for 1 year?

Thank you.

It will be better if they can renew passport because for renewal of SP/WP is based on the validity of the passport. If in case, the passport is less than 2 years, usually MOM would give shorter validity of the work pass. You will have to inform the employee that this is the usual case.

Our company's practise is to ask our staff to renew their passport but if they refuse to renew their passport we proceed on renewing their WP/SP according to their passport validity.

Yes, you may want your staff to renew their passport first, as the work permit expiry will follow the expiry of the passport.

Normally can proceed to renew work pass for 2 years and update MOM the new passport via i-submit in due course.

The staff should renew their passport which is better for both sides.
