Eligibility to work in Singapore

To be eligible to work in Singapore, you must satisfy one of the following conditions:

  1. Be a Singapore citizen
  2. Be a permanent resident of Singapore
  3. Have a valid work pass or permit

If you are a foreigner seeking employment in Singapore, you must have a job offer from a Singapore employer before applying for a work pass or permit. The type of work pass or permit you require will depend on your qualifications, skills, and the nature of your job.

The Ministry of Manpower (MOM) is the government agency responsible for issuing work passes and permits in Singapore. You can apply for a work pass or permit online through the MOM website. You will need to provide personal and employment-related information and supporting documents, such as your passport, educational certificates, and employment contracts.

It is important to note that Singapore has strict laws and regulations regarding immigration and employment. It is essential to ensure that you have the necessary legal documentation and meet the eligibility criteria before starting work in Singapore.
