What is Employment Pass?

What is Employment Pass?

Employment Pass (EP) is the most common relocation option for foreigners who want to open their business and move to Singapore. It’s a work visa that allows you to live and work in Singapore. We can prepare your EP within 6 months and you don’t have to fly in until it’s ready. If you already have one and want to switch your EP to your new company, we’ll have it ready even faster. EP is typically valid for 1-2 years depending upon MOM’s discretion.

  • Professional experience that fits the desired job description;
  • Education;
  • The company business profile and its products description.
