Ministry of Manpower sets up email helpdesk for Australians seeking to work in Singapore

The governments of Australia and Singapore are making it easier for our people to work in each others’ countries, as part of the Comprehensive Strategic Partnership (CSP) and an upgrade to the Singapore-Australia Free Trade Agreement (SAFTA).

Singapore’s Ministry of Manpower has established a dedicated help desk to assist Australians seeking temporary entry into Singapore. The help desk will improve transparency and provide information:

  • on requirements for temporary entry

  • to Australians on applications for temporary entry

  • regarding the status of applications for temporary entry

The email helpdesk is now up and running at: SAFTA_helpdesk@mom.gov.sg  or call +65 6871 6047. 

The upgraded SAFTA is expected to be ratified by both countries in coming months. For more information on how the SAFTA will help our people work in each others’ countries, visit our Services in SAFTA page: http://dfat.gov.au/trade/agreements/safta/Documents/safta-third-review-services-outcomes.pdf and watch this space for updates.
