The BasicsThe Employment Pass is aimed at professional employees who would be working in Singapore in a managerial, executive or other specialised occupation. All the necessary documentation should be submitted by your employer or by a licensed agency within Singapore. There are 3 categories within which you can apply for your EmploymentPass:
1. P1 employees need to have a post graduate degree and earn a minimum of S$8000 as a fixed monthly income.
2. P2 employees also require a post graduate degree but need to earn a fixed monthly salary of S$4500 to S$7999.
3. Q1 Employment Pass is aimed at young graduates who have little to no work experience with a fixed monthly salary of between S$3300 and S$4499. The greater the work experience or skills that an individual possesses, the higher the required income will be.
Each and every Employment Pass application is assessed individually by the Ministry of Manpower on its own merit. Individuals who have unique skills or work experience but lack a post graduate education may therefore be legible for one of the above categories. On the other hand, individuals who do possess a post graduate degree but are deemed not to have the necessary work experience may not be granted a Singapore work visa.
