We have heard of long-term passes being suspended because of a breach of SHNs or LOAs. This time ICA has cancelled a Singaporean’s passport for breaching his SHN willingly. 

Goh Illya Victor, 53 willingly breached his SHN despite warning from authorities.

  • 3 Mar 2020: travelled to Batam, Indonesia
  • 19 Mar 2020: returned to Singapore through Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal
  • 19 Mar 2020: issued a SHN
  • 19 Mar 2020: decided to return to Indonesia, depsite ICA officers warning him that he would breach the SHN requirements and could face penalties
  • 24 Mar 2020: returned to Singapore from Indonesia through the Singapore Cruise Centre
  • 24 Mar 2020: issued with a second 14-day-SHN

ICA said that it will not hesitate to take strong enforcement action against those who fail to comply with stay-home notice requirements.

Besides having their passport cancelled, such people can also be prosecuted under the Infectious Diseases Act and its Regulations, and face a fine of up to S$10,000, or 6 months’ jail, or both.

Members of public can report any information on those who did not comply with SHN requirements to ICA at go.gov.sg/reportshnbreach or 6812 5555.
