Applicants who do not report to the offered schools within the periods stated may have their places offered to other applicants.
If your child is holding a Dependant’s Pass (DP) or Immigration Exemption Order (IEO)
They do not need to apply for a Student’s Pass (STP). Their admission can be confirmed immediately upon reporting to the offered school.
If your child does not have a DP or IEO
Their admission is subject to them obtaining a STP.
In this case, your child will receive a STP Registration Acknowledgement Letter (RAL) from the school. You are advised to apply for their STP with the Immigration & Checkpoints Authority (ICA) as soon as possible upon receiving the RAL so that your child can start school as early as possible.
You may refer to ICA for more information , including the requirements for local sponsorship.
