Singapore: New applications for S Pass holders transferring to related companies

Jun 2017

The Ministry of Manpower (MOM) has passed a new requirement with immediate effect that employers transferring S Pass holders because two companies are undergoing full merger, acquisition or amalgamation, should notify MOM of the change in business entity. Otherwise, the S Pass holder can be transferred to a related company (e.g., subsidiary or parent company) by submitting a new S Pass application for the affected employee. S Pass is the work pass category for mid-skilled technical staff who meet the prevailing eligibility criteria, currently set at a fixed monthly salary of at least SGD 2,200 (more experienced candidates typically require higher salaries).
