Immigration Data

collapse

Work Study Visa

  1. UK nationals wanting to work in Singapore need an Employment Pass (EP). Before applying for an EP you must have secured a firm job offer. For more information about the three categories of employment pass (P1 Pass, P2 Pass, Q1 Pass - for foreign professionals) and the S Pass (for mid-level skilled workers such as technicians), visit the Ministry of Manpower (MOM) website. If you want to spend time in Singapore looking for a job, you can apply for the Employment Pass Eligibility Certificate (EPEC). Once your application for an EPEC has been successful, you should then apply for a one-year Visit Pass to allow you to remain in Singapore. The EPEC is issued on a one-time basis and is strictly non-renewable.
