Whether or not it is a work permit, S-Pass, or Employment Pass, we are obliged to return the pass within 1 week from the day of cancellation. MOM will send a reminder (or warning?) if we fail to do so.
Who shall bear the cost of replacing work pass that has been lost / damaged?
Whether or not it is a Work Permit, S Pass, or Employment Pass, if it is a first replacement, employer can recover the cost from the employee, if it is due to the employee negligence. However, subsequent replacement costs shall be bear by the employer.
Do also take note that if the permit has been lost, police report has to be lodged.
