Overview of Singapore Visas & Passes

Singapore has always been keen on attracting niche professionals with good credentials in both education and work experience. By providing a clean and safe environment, ensuring the constant inflow or skilled foreign expertise has helped the Singapore economy to sustain growth and vibrancy.

There are several types of work visas and passes, and we have provided a summary below for both employers and interested foreigners for quick and easy reference.

Latest Update:

With effect from 1 May 2021, foreigners staying in Singapore on Dependant’s Passes will need a work pass in order to work here, instead of a letter of consent. The relevant qualifying salary, dependency ratio ceiling and levy will apply. If they are already working, this must be done once their current letter of consent expires.
