S Pass Singapore (Work visa)

The S Pass is a visa which allows mid-level skilled foreigners who earn at least S$2,300 to work in Singapore. Certain criteria must be fulfilled in an S Pass application which is to be made by an employer.

Work Visa

The S Pass allows foreigners of mid-range skill level who earn a fixed monthly salary of at least S$2,300 to work in Singapore. Employers must make S Pass applications on behalf of a job candidate. 

S Pass applications are assessed based on multiple criteria including salary, education qualification, skills, job type, and work experience.  

That being said, it is always important to keep an open mind and be flexible about the work visa to be used for entry into Singapore. The S Pass is just one of many available options. Another work visa which could also be used is the Employment Pass (EP). Anyone who is seeking employment in Singapore and fulfills all of the necessary criteria may apply for and receive an Employment Pass. There are several advantages which come with owning an Employment Pass. You can discover these advantages for yourself after you have used our Employment Pass services. We at Paul Hype Page & Co will enable anyone who intends to receive an Employment Pass to make applications accordingly so that those who need an Employment Pass for the purposes of working in Singapore may do so. 

One of the primary advantages of the Employment Pass lies in the fact that owning one makes it easier for its holder to start a business in Singapore and thus become self-employed. If you are interested in doing so, we at Paul Hype Page & Co are once again able to be of service to you. Our incorporation team will work closely with you and also communicate with any relevant authorities to ease the process of the incorporation of your new Singapore-based business. For further information on this matter, please proceed to this link containing information on our package which provides incorporation as well as Employment Pass-related services. 


S Pass Eligibility 

Foreigners of mid-range skill level such as technicians who plan to work in Singapore may apply for an S Pass. Applicants take multiple criteria into considerations. Some of the criteria include the following: 

  • Minimum fixed monthly salary of S$2,300 
  • Degree or diploma 
  • Technical certificates which certify at least one year of full-time study 
  • Type of job  
  • Number of years of relevant work experience 

Work Permit holders who wish to apply for the S Pass must ensure that they meet the preceding requirements. 



The number of S Pass holders a company may employ is limited to 20% of the company’s total workforce. 


Medical Insurance 

The purchase and maintenance of medical insurance is a requirement for S Pass applicationThe insurance coverage must be worth at least S$15,000 per year for each worker’s inpatient care and day surgery during the person’s stay in Singapore. 


Passes for Family Members 

S Pass applicants whose fixed monthly salary is more than S$6,000 a month may apply for the Dependant’s Pass (DP)for their family members. The DP application and supporting documents may either be submitted together with the S Pass application or separately. 

S Pass holders who earn less than S$6,000 per month are not allowed to bring in their dependants such as spouses, children, and other family members. 

Should the children of such S Pass holders wish to study in mainstream public schools in Singapore, they will have to pass a Qualifying Test (QT) or the Admissions Exercise for International Students (AEIS). 

Of course, it should also be noted that the S Pass is not the only pass which could possibly be used by one who plans to live and work in Singapore. Another such pass is the Employment Pass (EP). If you are interested in receiving an EP, you can consider yourself fortunate because we at Paul Hype Page & Co offer a package which includes application for an EP. We even help those who are interested in starting their own business with the process of company incorporation in Singapore. Our fees are reasonable and affordable, so the cost will not be burdensome to you.
