Beginning June 1st, the Ministry of Manpower (MOM) will require that applications for most pass types be submitted through MOM’s online portal. Applications to which the new requirement will apply include the following new and renewal applications for:
- Work Permits,
- Training Employment Passes,
- Employment Passes,
- S Passes, and
- Related Dependent or Long Term Visit Passes.
Prior to being able to submit applications online, companies must first create a work pass account. If they do not, they will be subject to delays. Additionally, any companies who do not currently fully support their foreign employees’ dependent applications must update their policies so that they do so. This transition to processing of online applications should make the process much quicker.
