Immigration and Work Permits

Immigration and organising Work Permits for Singapore is not especially hard if you know what you're doing. There are a range of permits available and we cover the most common for skilled expats and contractors in our section on Work Permits. The rules are regularly updated to reflect market conditions and government policy but at the moment there are 3 main categories:

  1. Employer Sponsored Work Permits like the Employment Pass
  2. Independent Work Permits like the PEP
  3. Investment related Work permits like the Entrepass

Whilst we always try to keep our information up to date, we rely heavily on our local partners who are the specialists. If you want the latest information about organising Singapore Work Visas for your staff or getting sponsored as a contractor, please contact us with your circumstances and we can always assist you.

Our sponsorship partners are umbrella companies who are experts in local immigration laws. By acting as the employer they can sponsor you or your employees on a work permit in Singapore. The benefits include:

- full compliance with local immigration laws

- freedom to work with any end client for any duration

- security and comfort of using a long established international market leader

- low administration

- visa allows for entry of spouse and dependants

- local salary compliance, processing of expenses and tax offsets
