MOM has announced the recent change on the salary criteria in applying for Dependant Pass of Work Pass Holders.

“Changes to Dependant Privileges for Work Pass Holders”. Ministry of Manpower. 16 July 2015. Web. 24 July 2015.

CHANGES TO DEPENDANT PRIVILEGES FOR WORK PASS HOLDERS

As part of periodic updating, MOM has reviewed the qualifying salary criteria for work pass holders to sponsor dependants. This is to ensure that sponsors are able to upkeep their dependants in Singapore.

From 1 September 2015:

  • Work pass holders need to meet a minimum fixed monthly salary of $5,000 to sponsor the stay of their spouse/ children here (on Dependant’s Pass).
  • Work pass holders need to meet a minimum fixed monthly salary of $10,000 to sponsor the stay of their parents here (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 September 2015 will be assessed on pre-1 September 2015 criteria.

Renewal of DPs/ LTVPs will also be based on pre-1 September 2015 criteria provided the main pass holder remains with the same employer.
