Possible problem in getting a 2-year contract job in SG if passport will expire in less than 2 years

Good evening.

Itanong ko lang, possible issue ba ang below 2 years expiration date ng passport to get a 2-year job contract in SG? Mine will expire on May2019

  • Your EP will follow your passport's expiry date, company will need to renew your pass once your passport expires. Shouldnt be a problem unless youre on Spass and your employer runs out of quota upon reapplication.

  • hi, paano po if my passport will expire in June 2018, and my EP is still being processed?
    Advisable ba na sana ni renew ko muna passport? Kaya lang naka submit na.
    Baka kasi mahirap nag renew.
  • Oo mag renew ka muna passport. Mas madali kung sa pinas. Kasi dito SG, 1-2months waiting sa appointment + 6-8 weeks collection
  • @carpejem yeah I mentioned nga sa other thread na naka pass na kasi application ko sa MOM. Inaantay ko lang. Pag ni renew ko now baka ma invalidate yung EP kasi canceled na yung passport ko that I used with them since nag renew ako.

    Dito din kasi medyo pahirapan schedule ng passport :/
  • Okay, just wait nalang. Then renew ka ulit mid next year
  • @sgphilmc nagreply nako sa isang thread, after IPA approval, pwede namang ipahold mo muna sa HR ung next step, which is the issuance of pass. Mag-email ka sa Phil embassy, nagrereply naman sila within the day or the following day. Sabihin mo urgent passport renewal and passport validity extension para sa employment pass mo. Magseset sila ng schedule asap para sayo. Yung friend ko inextend naman ng 2yrs ung passport niya. So nung inissue naung pass nya, pasok na sa 2yrs validity. 1 day process lang ito. Check mo website ng Phil Embassy.
  • @maya and @sgphilmc, update nyo po dito kung napprove yung 1 day process of extension.

    Thanks.
  • @maya thanks! nasa Pinas po kasi ako. So sa DFA ko lang pwede idaan. Medyo kasi matagal ang renewal dito. Bali antayin ko muna if makuha ko yung IPA and see what I'll do next, if pwede ba update ko na lang MOM once mag renew ako ng passport early next year... salamat po sa sagot :)
  • @jrdnprs actually, 3 of my friends na ang gumawa ng ganun and wala naman naging problema sa process.

    Extension of Passport validity for Pass renewal and travel
    Effective 01 January 2016, the Embassy will extend the validity of a Philippine passport only on the following three conditions: (1) the passport is an electronic passport, (2) the passport holder has done a recent passport renewal (i.e. to renew the current passport), and (3) the passport extension fee of SGD 34.00 is paid.
    The extension of passport validity usually applies to individuals who must make an immediate Pass renewal or make an overseas travel in the immediate future before the new passport is available for collection.
    Individuals who have a need for an immediate passport renewal or immediate passport extension may make the request to Passport Section with an email titled “Request for an immediate passport renewal and passport validity extension” to [email protected]

    @sgphilmc ang hinahabol mo kasi dito is bago maissue ung pass, makapagpaextend ka na. kasi kapag naissue naung pass mo, ifofollow naung expiry ng passport mo. so kht iupdate mo MOM later, hindi na mababago ung validity ng pass mo.

  • @sgphilmc ok salamat! pag issue ng IPA sige renew ko na agad. ok lang naman na iba na yung passport num ng IPA sa mismong pass dba? salamat po.
  • @sgphilmc ung isang friend ko, nasa Pinas din sya nung napprove IPA nya. 1st time nya magwork sa sg. So nung naapprove na IPA nya, pumasok sya sa sg as tourist. Tapos dito sa embassy sya nagpaextend ng passport validity.
  • ok lang naman na iba na yung passport num ng IPA sa mismong pass dba? - I think so.

    Paano ba yung case mo? 1st time mo ba magwork dito or nirenew lang ung pass mo?
  • @maya first time po. Though I've been to SG many times as a tourist. Yung company offered me job via email. They filed for the emp pass and I gave my passport na expiry is June. They need me to start in Oct. E dito ang renewal earliest date available appointment is November pa.

    Balak ko din yan as a tourist. Kaya lang I registered sa OWWA online my profile (name lang naman). nakakatakot lang baka makita nila may registration ako don. Kaya balak ko ayusin here...
  • Hmmmn, diko kasi alam pano jan satin sa Pinas. Pag naapprove na IPA mo, inform mo na lang din si employer na magrenew/extend ka muna passport bago nila iissue yung pass mo. Mag-inquire2 ka na lang din sa DFA kung paano at gaano kabilis yung proseso.

    Posible, bibigyan ka ng 2yrs pass basta passport mo eh >1yr pa ang validity.

    Yang pass expiry = passport expiry eh sa mga cases lang ata na <1yr na lang ang passport validity.

    Otherwise, kapag <2yrs basta >1yr pa passport mo kahit 5yrs pass posible.

    Walang issue yan sa pass application mo, kahit mag renew ka pa ng passport 6mos before expiration sa 2019.

    @tambay7 not in my case. Inapply ako pass June2017. Expiry ng passport ko Dec 19 2018.
    So that's < 2yrs but > 1yr

    Nung naissue pass ko, expiry nya is Nov2018. Finollow lang expiry ng passport ko. Hindi 2yrs
  • @maya that's interesting, tinanong mo ba sa employer mo kung ilang months nilagay nila sa pass application, in months kasi yung filed dun hindi year.

    in my case my previous passport expired this year July, my pass was applied and approved September last year with 2yrs validity naman.
  • I remember my employer notified me about this. Nung iissue na sana niya pass ko, sinabihan ako na "less than 2 years na lang pala itong passport mo, so di ka mabibigyan ng pass na 2yrs validity, ifofollow lang din ung expiry ng passport mo". Not sure if may nagprompt bang message habang nakalog in sya sa MOM at nung iissue na sana niya kaya nyako ninotify. Not sure din kung 24 months pa rin ba yung nilagay niya or binilang niya lang kung ilang buwan na lang valid passport ko.
  • sa case ko naman sinunod lang din ung expiry ng PP ko last time. 1 year and 8months. :)
  • Ang pinaka maganda talaga nyan, 6 months bago magrenew ng pass, icheck din ang passport para may oras pa rin para mag renew ng passport in case alanganin na.
  • yung pass pwede mag approve ang mom up to 5 years. pero kapag issuance na, susundin nila na expiry date ang sa passport mo minus one month.
    kaya yung kay @maya Nov 2018 and expiry ng pass kasi Dec 2018 ang passport nya.
    meron sa amin na approve na 3 years pass pero ang passport nya ay valid ng 2 years lang, kaya ang pass nya ay 2 years rin.

  • New application ba o renewal? I have a different experience, passport expiring June 2017, pass renewal done last August 2016, granted naman 2yrs until 2018.
  • approved na ako S pass. 2 years, pero passport expiring on June 2018. I was told by employer na update MOM na lang once nag renew na ako dyan sa SG. need ko pa mag ma medical...

    ang tanong ko next lang. nag register ako sa OWWA as member online, though wala passport num. safe pa kaya if I exit PH as tourist?

  • approved na ako S pass. 2 years, pero passport expiring on June 2018. I was told by employer na update MOM na lang once nag renew na ako dyan sa SG. need ko pa mag ma medical...
    - 2yrs tlg nakalagay sa IPA, pero ibang usapan pa ung issuance of pass after mo magpamedical pa yun. magkakaiba naman cases natin, tanungin mo na lang sa employer mo kung nakaencounter na sila ng same situation. less than 1yr nmn na lang pala ung passport mo eh, pwede na yan for renewal and extension para sigurado ka sa 2yrs pass.

    ang tanong ko next lang. nag register ako sa OWWA as member online, though wala passport num. safe pa kaya if I exit PH as tourist?
    - di ako sure pero hindi naman ata linked ang system ng mga govt agencies sa pinas di gaya dto sa sg so malabong matrack nila yun. pero di ako sure ha.
  • Thanks @maya

    I have the IPA na using the current passport.

    I will renew soon and aabot naman before departure, pinapatanong ko sa employer sa MOM if wala ba problem if mag iba ng passport number kasi syempre yung nasa IPA iba nakalagay...
  • @maya Good for you. Congrats!
    On your question: "ang tanong ko next lang. nag register ako sa OWWA as member online, though wala passport num. safe pa kaya if I exit PH as tourist?
    - di ako sure pero hindi naman ata linked ang system ng mga govt agencies sa pinas di gaya dto sa sg so malabong matrack nila yun. pero di ako sure ha." OWWA membership, one of the requirements of POEA, you can still exit as Tourist, you need to buy RT.
  • @carpejem yes, I will buy RT naman. Thank you!
