WPSP on passport ( From Singapore )

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Long story short, fiance was working in Singapore and on her way out got stamped with a WPSP on her passport. I guess there was issues with some of her documents or something, the workers that hired her told her to get a tourist visa and she did ( but she didnt know that if you have a tourist visa it is only good for 1 month ). She even had a return ticket for 6 months but they still let her in. Anyway, I am trying to find out if this type of thing counts a criminal record of some type. I know they take fingerprints and all that jazz so I am not sure if that is a criminal offense or not. She was not arrested nor was she detained, anybody can give me a clue where to find this information that would be great.

I had my old passport when i worked in Singapore,the Immigration stamp WPSP at the back page too.

I don't think so this counts as a criminal record.when i processed my COC in Singapore,i able to get my

COC and the CID(SPF)send my COC to US embassy.i read somewhere that say's WPSP chop usually means nothing

but an indicator that you were denied entry into Singapore.i hope somebody here can give you more answer to your query.

Thank you, that is at least heart lifting. She has never done anything wrong while there so I wouldnt imagine it would have created a police record, but who knows. Anyway, thanks.

Your Welcome!...and good luck on her interview...

Hi.

I thought I would add some colour to this topic as nobody seems to know what a "WPSP" stamp is for.

My GF (Korean) received one when she left Singapore after losing her job. She was on an S-Pass employment visa and as stated in the terms of this visa, if she loses her job then the sponsoring company is required to fly her back to her home country within a week of her final date of employment. After handing back her S-Pass the company contacts the Ministry of Manpower, who transfers her onto a "Work Permit Special Pass" (WPSP) or temp visa until she leaves the country. On exit she received this stamp.

I have attached the link below to the MoM website which explains this and the letter we wrote to MoM to confirm this.
