Renewal of work permits and residence visas amid COVID-19

Labourers and support service staff such as domestic workers whose work permits have expired would be exempt from medical tests for renewing their work permits and residence visas. Their work permits and residence visas will be renewed and issued automatically. In addition, foreign visitors and residents whose visas expired in early March 2020 or are due to expire later, will receive an extension of their visas until the end of December 2020.

Note: The above was implemented during the early phase of pandemic (in 2020) and was slowly phased out as the situation returned to normalcy.
