Singapore presents very precise and complex requirements for employment within the country.

Employment Pass: This option is appropriate for highly skilled professionals and senior managers seeking to work in Singapore. Qualifications include a minimum salary level. The pass is usually issued for one to two years and it can be further extended based on continued employment with the same company.

S Pass: This category is for mid-skilled employees and those with a salary threshold that is less than the Employment Pass requirement.  Like the Employment Pass, it is issued for one to two years and may be extended.

EntrePass: This option is open to entrepreneurs, innovators, and investors of any foreign nationality who have started or intend to start a business. Validity is for one year, and it may be renewed for up to two years.

Personalized Employment Pass: This is available to high-earning foreign professionals or existing Employment Pass holders who meet the eligibility criteria. It is valid for up to three years but cannot be renewed.

Work permits: Various options are available for workers in construction, manufacturing, marine shipyard, process and services industries; domestic workers; nannies; performing artists; trainees; and more.

Short-term visit pass: Issued to foreign nationals entering Singapore for business meetings, conferences, and other non-paid activities. The maximum duration of validity is 30 days.
