Singapore is expanding its recruitment of overseas talents. ONE Pass is approved for 5 years + 5 years, with no quota limit. You can apply for it with a monthly salary of 30,000 SGD

From January 2023, Singapore will fully implement ONE Pass (Overseas Networks & Expertise Pass) for top professionals! Many elite people have also enquired about how to apply for it and renew it later. Recently, we got detailed information from the Ministry of Manpower, and we will share it in this regard.

ONE Pass Features

ONE Pass is a personalized pass for top talent in all fields, including business, arts and culture, sports, academics, and research. It allows eligible applicants to set up, operate, and work for multiple companies in Singapore simultaneously.

1. Multi-company corporate employment

Holders of the ONE Pass can operate and work for multiple companies in Singapore at any given time or at the same time.

2. Freedom to change occupation/employment

You do not need to apply for a new pass should you change jobs. The pass is valid for up to 5 years and can be renewed for 5 years directly provided the renewal requirements are met.

3. Family Immigration

You can separately apply for a dependant’s pass for your spouse, children and parents.

4. Easier for your spouse to find jobs

Should your spouse wishes to work in Singapore, he/she will only have to obtain a Letter of Consent (LOC) from the Ministry of Manpower. There is no need to apply for another work pass.
