CHANGES TO DEPENDANT PRIVILEGES FOR WORK PASS HOLDERS (2018)
As part of periodic updating, MOM has reviewed the qualifying salary criteria for work pass holders to qualify for dependant privileges. This is to ensure that main pass holders are able to upkeep their dependants in Singapore.
From 1 January 2018:
- Work pass holders need to meet a minimum fixed monthly salary of $6,000 to bring in their spouse/children (on Dependant’s Pass).
- Work pass holders need to meet a minimum fixed monthly salary of $12,000 to bring in their parents (on Long Term Visit Pass).
New Dependant’s Pass (DP) applications for spouse/children and Long Term Visit Pass (LTVP) applications for parents received before 1 January 2018 will be assessed on existing criteria.
Renewal DPs/LTVPs approved or issued before 1 January 2018 will also be assessed on existing criteria as long as the main pass holder holds a valid work pass with the same employer.
