Singapore Employment Pass Details

Singapore Employment Pass

Short Name: EP




Overview Top 

Each Employment Pass can be valid for 1 or 2 years, and is renewable so long that the pass holder remains employed in the company. The validity period for first-time applicants is up to two years. Validity for Employment Pass renewal is up to three years.

You will need to apply for Employment Pass if you are an entrepreneur who has just incorporated a company in Singapore and wish to work and live in Singapore. Corporations will need to secure Employment Passes for the staff such as managing directors and management staff of the company which is intended to be relocated to Singapore.

With an Employment Pass, the pass holder can travel in and out of Singapore with minimum hassle for immigration. In addition, Employment Pass holders are also eligible to apply for Permanent Residency (PR) in Singapore. On another note, if you or your foreign employees
are in Singapore on a short-term basis (between 2 weeks – 6 months), it will be more useful to apply for the Short-Term Employment Pass or Training Employment Pass.

Key Considering Factors Top 

  • If the company sponsoring the work visa is a well-established organization in Singapore
  • If the applicant is holding a tertiary qualification from a well-established institution
  • If the applicant has at least 3 years of professional experience in the field relevant to the new job scope

  • Age

  • Related work experience
  • Company’s background

  • Current citizenship
