Key Points

  • New vaccination requirements will be introduced for work pass holders in Singapore on October 1, 2022


On October 1, 2022, the government of Singapore will introduce new vaccination requirements for foreign nationals seeking work passes in the country. On the effective date, holders of a work pass employed in construction, marine shipyards, or process sectors who desire to apply for a new pass or renew an existing pass will be required to be fully vaccinated.

All other pass holders will be required to be fully vaccinated when applying for a new work pass. This includes receiving a booster dose within 270 days from the last primary vaccination dose.

Pass holders vaccinated overseas must apply for a digital-verifiable vaccination certificate (DVC) that a local clinic has verified. For additional information on vaccination status and proof, check here.
