In the huge complexes locked down during the pandemic, there were poor living conditions for the low-paid workers who may not need the exit passes anymore to leave the dorms.
The strict movement-related restrictions were only in place for a short period, and the migrant workers were limited to dorms except for running errands or going to work.
Now the authorities have slowly relaxed the restrictions for visiting recreation centers, and applying for the special exit passes is also rolled out.
From the 24th of June, the workers who were employed in industries like construction and maintenance will no longer need any exit passes to leave their dormitories.

Four tightly-controlled Singapore popular locations still require exit passes to visit.
This restriction is applied on Sundays and public holidays; there are only 80,000 passes available per day.
The Ministry authorities claim this to be a ‘potential high footfall’ measure for those popular destinations as the pandemic is not finished.
A local group Humanitarian Organisation for Migration Economics (HOME), supports migrant workers and encourages the end of exit pass restrictions claiming it to be discriminatory. Like the other people, the migrant workers living in Dormitories also need the freedom to visit.
