Singapore Employment Pass & EntrePass Application Procedures

The Singapore Employment Pass (EP) is a type of renewable work visa for foreign professionals, managers, executives and other professionals to live and work in Singapore. The Employment Pass is also available to Entrepreneurs who have incorporated a Company in Singapore. This permits the Entrepreneur to move to Singapore and run business operations in the country.

Employment pass Application Procedures

Step 1: Determine eligibility

Applicants must meet the minimum requirements for the EP, which include having a job offer from a Singapore-registered company, holding a managerial, executive, or specialized skill position, having relevant academic qualifications, and earning a salary that aligns with the industry standard.

Step 2: Prepare necessary documents

Applicants must gather all of the required documents, such as the completed EP application form, passport, educational certificates and employment testimonials.

Step 3: Engage an employment agent

Employment agents can help applicants with the EP application process including submitting the application to MOM and providing guidance on the required documents.

Step 4: Await the In-Principle Approval (IPA)

The IPA is a letter from MOM that grants the applicant permission to enter Singapore and work under the EP. The IPA is typically issued within 3 weeks of submitting the application.

Step 5: Record fingerprints and photos at the Employment Pass Service Centre (EPSC)

Once the IPA is issued, the applicant must visit the EPSC to record their fingerprints and photos.

Step 6: Receive the EP card

The EP card is typically issued within 5 working days of recording fingerprints and photos at the EPSC.

Experience the Advantage of Collaboration



The difficulty in obtaining an Employment Pass (EP) varies based on the applicant’s qualifications, work experience, salary, and the demand for their skills in the job market. Each application is evaluated individually by the Singapore Ministry of Manpower (MOM).

No, EP holders are strictly permitted to work full-time with a specific employer.

Yes, EP holders can relocate with their families. The specific pass/permit depends on the relationship with the family member and the intended activities in Singapore. Some common passes include Long Term Visit Pass (LTVP), Dependant Pass (DP), Letter of Consent (LOC), and Pre-approved Letter of Consent.

Yes, EP holders can initiate a Private Limited company in Singapore and act as the local director. It is advisable to stay updated with regulations related to company formation.

No. While EP is a work visa for professionals in managerial or specialized roles, Work Pass is a broader term for various work visas issued in Singapore.

Singaporean citizen or PR EP holders need to make CPF contributions, but foreign national EP holders don’t. Instead, they contribute to the Skills Development Levy (SDL) and the Foreign Worker Levy (FWL).

EP holders are taxed on their employment income with rates ranging from 0% to 22% based on the amount earned. Other taxes like property tax, GST, and stamp duty might also apply.

EP holders can be outside of Singapore for up to six months without affecting their EP status. For longer durations, approval from MOM is necessary.

If you lose your job in Singapore while on an Employment Pass (EP), your EP will be cancelled immediately. You will then have 30 days to either find a new job and have your new employer apply for a new EP for you, or to leave Singapore.

In other words, you will not be allowed to stay in Singapore without a valid EP for more than 30 days after your job loss. You’ll have 30 days to secure a new job and reapply for an EP else you will need to leave Singapore. You will be able to return to Singapore if you are able to secure a new job and obtain a new EP.

Yes, EP holders can apply for PR. The assessment for PR considers factors like economic contributions, duration of stay in Singapore, and local family ties. In other words, EP holders who have made significant economic contributions to Singapore, have lived in the country for a long period of time, and have strong family ties in Singapore are more likely to have their PR applications approved.
