Collect Student's Pass

Back to top

If your application is successful, ICA will issue you an In-Principle Approval (IPA) letter. Your Student’s Pass will only be issued if you meet all the requirements stipulated in the letter.

You must be in Singapore on a valid immigration pass to collect your Student’s Pass. If you require a visa to enter Singapore for this purpose, the visa will be included in your In-Principle Approval (IPA) letter. You may enter Singapore by producing the IPA letter at the immigration checkpoint, where you will be granted a Visit Pass.

Before collecting your Student’s Pass, you will need to acknowledge a copy of the Student’s Pass Terms and Conditions. Click here to download a copy.

If you have not been scheduled for any offsite enrolment, you must collect your Student’s Pass at ICA Building.
