- A completed Employment Pass Application form which can be downloaded from the agency's website.

- It is advised that professionals should acquire sponsorship from the company if the employer is a Singapore-based company. However, the professional is advised to secure an application sponsored by a local company, the said company would then be the one to sign the EP form and put a company seal on the form if the employer is a non Singapore-based company and does not possess any office in Singapore.

- Scholastic certificates, and if relevant, references or testimonials from previous employers

Eligibility for EP

Scholastics criteria is one of the vital factor in determining the eligibility for EP. Applicants should have a diploma from college in a prestigious university.

A steady monthly income rate of at least S$2,500 is one of the requirements to acquire an EP.

A foreign professional's current citizenship, age, work-related experience, and duties and responsibilities in a company are also among the factors to be considered according to MOM.
