Update to Employment Pass Salary Criteria
From 1 January 2017, the qualifying salary for Employment Pass (EP) applications will be raised from $3,300 to $3,600. This change is part of the Ministry of Manpower’s (MOM) regular updating of the EP qualifying salary to keep pace with rising local wages, maintain the quality of our foreign workforce and enhance their complementarity to the local workforce.
MOM’s manpower policy framework is designed to meet the manpower needs of the economy, so that businesses can stay competitive and grow, and ultimately create more and better jobs in Singapore. The previous minimum EP qualifying salary update was in Jan 2014, from $3,000 to $3,300.
