Two Malaysian nationals have been arrested by the MOM for having worked illegally as food delivery riders for foodpanda and Deliveroo in Singapore. Both men had only social visit passes, but managed to find loophopes to work here. MOM is investigating how they managed to do so.

The first Malaysian national was caught at 313 @ Somerset from a public tip off. The 24 year old man had a social visit pass, but used his Singaporean friend’s Deliveroo account to work as a food delivery driver. Allegedly, the friend got a cut from the Malaysian driver’s earnings. Another man, a 21 year old Malaysian man, also held a social visit pass but who had allegedly been hired by a Singaporean to work as an illegal delivery driver using the latter’s foodpanda and Deliveroo account.

Deliveroo subsequently said they had suspended the accounts of both workers in question, saying that they only hire Singapore citizen or a Singapore permanent resident. Foodpanda has yet to comment on the arrests made.
