An Employment Pass (or EP) is a Singapore work visa issued by the Singapore Ministry of Manpower. This visa allows foreign employees, managers and owners or directors of Singaporean companies to live and work in Singapore. Holders of an Employment Pass can travel freely in and out of Singapore without applying for entry visas, and also makes it easier for holders to apply for permanent residency in Singapore.
How long your Employment Pass will be valid will depend on the type of applicant. For first-time applicants, the maximum validity is two years. At the end of two years it can be renewed. For applicants who are renewing their Employment Pass, once renewed it can be valid for up to three years.
Three months before yourEmployment Pass is duefor renewal, an Employment Pass Renewal Form will be sent to the registered address of your employer or the appointed employment agent. Your renewal application will need to reach the Ministry of Manpower at least two months before your current pass expires to be eligible, the duration of your renewed pass will start when the current pass expires. Once renewed, the Employment Pass should be valid for up to three years.
