Cancellation of Employment Pass Formalities to Settle
There are few legal formalities that you will need to perform if you plan to leave Singapore permanently. Before you leave, you need to make sure that you clear all your tax dues. Normally, your employer will assist in the tax clearance on your behalf.
Other aspect you need to settle is your accommodation. If you are living in rented house, you need to inform your landlord and settle any payments and collect your deposit. You will also need to close your accounts with the utility providers such as Singtel, Starhub and SP Services, and remember to also collect your deposits if you have.
You will also need to notify your banks which you have account with, loans, your credit card and insurance companies. Make sure you check with them any for formalities or outstanding payments that need to be settled.
One last thing is, if you have any dependants here, make sure they also notify all the institutions they are attached to, for instance your children’s educational institution.
Employment Pass is valid for 2 years and is renewable thereafter. So, if you wish to go back to your origin country once the validity ends, you do not need to renew the pass. But if you wish to continue residing here, you will need to renew the pass but is still subject to MOM’s approval.
