Work Pass for mid-level skilled workers – S Pass

You can apply for S Pass if you are a mid-level skilled worker seeking employment in Singapore. There is a general cap on the number of workers who can be admitted into Singapore under mid-level skilled worker category. The cap is revised on an annual basis depending on demand and supply of workers. To be eligible for S Pass, you will have to meet the criterion set by the Government of Singapore – the more you meet, the more likely are you to get an S Pass.

The other important condition for issue of S Pass is your minimum fixed salary which must be at least $2,200. Young applicants generally stand a better chance of getting an S Pass. Older applicants can offset this criterion if they are able to contract a job with higher salary and bring in superior skill sets. Your application for S Pass should be routed through your employer after you have completed and signed a contract with them.

Generally it is the responsibility of the employer to obtain an S Pass on your behalf. Once obtained, you are responsible for keeping your S Pass safe, and it should be produced to authorities whenever called for.
