Singapore immigration pass requirements

UWCSEA is an accredited Foreign System School (FSS) in Singapore. This information provides guidance on the immigration requirements for students who intend to study at a FSS school in Singapore, and also clarifies the responsibilities of the FSS. 

For a student to be successfully enroled and to start at UWCSEA, and continue to attend if their immigration pass changes or is updated in any way, we are required to ensure that students are holding a valid immigration pass. 

To do this we ask parents to provide, and to update as necessary, copies of the ‘proof paperwork’ that shows their child is holding a valid immigration pass.

In order to be able to attend a FSS, students are required to possess one of the following valid Singapore immigration passes:

Students may not study, or continue to attend classes, at a FSS if they:

  • hold a Long Term Visit Pass (LTVP) or a Visit Pass issued by the ICA or MOM under Immigration Regulation 12 (the regulation under which it has been issued will be noted when the pass is provided)
  • have an expired DP or IEO or invalid REP
  • are a Singapore Citizen and they have not been granted a waiver by the MOE to attend the FSS that applied for the waiver on behalf of the student
  • have an In-Principle Approval (IPA) letter for an STP from the ICA; students need to hold the actual, physical pass and have provided a copy to the FSS
