GEMS Singapore will register a child requiring a Student Pass with the Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA) after acceptance by GEMS Singapore and parents will process the application from there.

Please note that applicants to GEMS Singapore requiring a Student Pass will be accepted onto our wait list and no place will be reserved for the student until the pass has been issued by the ICA.

Student Pass holders can commence classes after the student ID has been issued. Student Pass holders must meet the minimum 90% monthly attendance requirements stipulated by the ICA.
