The Ministry of Manpower (MOM) will be introducing a new Work Pass (WP) card with an incorporated Quick Response (QR) Code alongside a free mobile application (app) called the SGWorkPass. Pass holders, employers, and any other stakeholders will be able to use the mobile app to check the status of work passes with their smartphones. With the new WP card, pass holders will not be issued with a new WP for each renewal of the pass as the up-to-date information is available on SGWorkPass.
However, if the pass holders have completed their previous fingerprinting and photo registration more than five years ago, they are required to re-register during the renewal process and new pass cards will be issued to replace the earlier cards.
