The Ministry of Manpower (MOM) has permanently banned eight British nationals from working in Singapore after they were found breaching regulations under the Covid-19 (Temporary Measures) Act.

Their work passes have been earlier cancelled by their former employers, the ministry added.

The eight of them were part of a group of 10 who were caught on a match outing last December.

At that time, social gatherings were limited to a maximum of five people in a group.

The other two people on the yacht are a Singapore Permanent Resident and another Briton who was already banned from working in Singapore by MOM following the breach.

The eight individuals pleaded guilty today to breaching the regulations.

MOM reminds all work pass holders to comply with the rules and follow safe distancing measures, Quarantine Orders and Stay-Home Notice requirements.

The ministry said it will continue to take enforcement action against work pass holders who do not abide by the law.
