Students will not be allowed to enter school or remain in school with an invalid or expired pass.
For Student Pass holders - It is the responsibility of parent(s)/guardian(s) to request Student Pass renewal from the school at least 6 weeks before expiration of their current pass. As and when Student Pass holder’s passport has been renewed or changed, parent(s)/guardian(s) are required to submit copy of the renewed or new passport to student record office.
All international students who have been accepted and offered a place as a full time student at ICS are required to have a valid pass: Dependent, Diplomatic, Student, or Proof of PR status issued by the Singapore Immigration & Checkpoints Authority (ICA). Only student who hold a valid pass will be allowed to attend school.

Student Pass issued is not transferrable and will expire upon the student ceasing to be a Student of ICS.
Please plan accordingly.
