Student Visa Status

Middleton International School is able to accommodate Singapore Permanent Residents and Dependent Pass holders.

For non-residential immigration status, including Long Term Visit Pass holders, a Student Pass application will need to be submitted. As an EduTrust accredited school, we are able to assist your child with an application to the ICA (Immigration Checkpoint Authority). Middleton cannot guarantee a successful outcome of a student pass application, as this is controlled by the ICA. Upon successful application Student Pass holders must meet the minimum 90% monthly attendance requirements stipulated by the ICA.

Singapore Citizen Applications

Singapore Government regulations require Singaporean Citizens of Primary 1 age and above, who wish to attend a Foreign System School (FSS), to obtain approval from the Ministry of Education (MOE).

Important information regarding approval requests to the MOE:
  • Middleton may not offer a place to a Singapore Citizen of Primary 1 age and above without first obtaining approval from the MOE for that student.
  • Middleton must have a spot available for the student before submitting an application for a MOE approval.
  • Parents may not submit applications for approval to attend an FSS to the MOE directly. All applications to the MOE must be submitted directly by Middleton.
  • All approvals from the MOE are considered on a case by case basis, granted entirely at the discretion of the MOE. Approval granted for one FSS is only approved for that school only and does not guarantee that approval for a different FSS will be approved.

Children aged 3 to 5 (in the Early Years programme) do not require MOE approval.
