From 2018 to 2020, 11 Employment Pass and S Pass holders working in the infocomm technology (ICT) sector were found to have submitted false qualifications. Their work passes were revoked and they were permanently barred from working in Singapore. Apart from employers’ checks, the Manpower Ministry also screens qualifications submitted through its database of educational institutions. For institutions not in the database, third-party verification is required. Manpower Minister Tan See Leng said this in Parliament on Monday (Aug 2) in response to MPs’ questions.
