A DP will permits an individual to join their parent or spouse in Singapore, and once a DP is issued, the holder will need to apply for an Employment Pass, S Pass or Work Permit to be eligible to work in the country legally.

However, DP holders running a business can still apply for the LOC to use as a valid permit to work in Singapore.

Spouses and children of individuals with an Employment Pass, S Pass, EntrePass or PEP who earn at least $6000 per month can apply for a DP. Spouses must be legally married to a Singapore work pass holder to be eligible for a DP application, a partner who is co-habiting long-term and is therefore regarded as married by common-law, should apply for a Long-Term Social Visit Pass (LTSVP) instead.
