Got offered a job, but just returned from SG trip after one month stay

My situation is I just got back from my month long stay in Singapore (job search). Now, I'm about to sign the contract with an SG employer. I understand that MOM pass application process may take up to two weeks. My concern is I want to be able to successfully leave PH and return to SG soon.

My options are:
1. Should I book my ticket now and return to SG asap (within the next 5 days or within the week) without knowing the outcome of my MOM application?
2. Wait for IPA to be issued and then book and fly immediately
3. Wait for IPA to be issued and then book, but set the fly date to a week or two later
4. Please suggest other options

By the way, I'm a girl, currently unemployed, freelancing as a photographer.


  • wait for IPA, then fly to a nearby country, thailand or HK, tapos from there lipad to SG.

  • @jcsia87 - what I did last time after I took 2 months vacation before I started my new work, kinausap ko yung employer if I can start this date.. pumayag naman sila kaya habang naka-pending yung pass ko nasa Pinas ako. Then yung na-approve I still stayed in PH for 1 month+... Then 3 days before I started working bumalik na ako SG.

    3 days before kasi alam ko na pasikot sikot dito at madali lang naman maghanap ng place as long as may budget ka.

    But I didn't tell to IO sa PH kung ano gagawin ko dito sa SG, and I didn't go OWWA or anything... so just normal I go there as tourist (2 way ticket)... wala naman naging anong tanong sa IO PH.

    Once you the the IPA no problem na sa IO sa SG.
  • tama si @maya wait for the IPA then lipad sa bansa malapit sa SG mahirap pag ka deretso ka SG kasi nag stay kana ng 1 month sigurado madaming tanung yan. Congrats and Goodluck!
  • Tama si Maya, option 2 and make a detour! Make sure lahat ng docs mo is wala sa hand carry mo, ilagay sa check in luggage, just to be on the safe side sa Ph IO.
  • Thanks for all the tips guys.
