What does the change mean? The authority emphasized that the public must exercise caution and ensure that they use the correct website and official ICA website at www.ica.gov.sg for all informational and transactional needs concerning ICA matters.
- Implementation time frame: Ongoing.
- Who is affected: Individuals and companies using the ICA website for immigration matters.
- Business impact: Personal and financial information may be compromised if captured through the fake website.
Background: This year, at least six reported fake government websites have been reported, and this is not the first for ICA. The government agency said that a police report has been made against the latest site and is working to have it taken down. ICA has issued an official statement reassuring the public that access to theofficial ICA website is unaffected and that no data have been compromised.
