SINGAPORE: Higher Minimum Salary for S Pass Applicants

Effective 1 January 2020, the minimum qualifying salary for the S Pass will be increased from SGD 2300 to SGD 2400.

Further Details

  • Existing S Passes expiring before 1 January 2020 can be renewed based on the pre-2020 salary requirement.
  • Existing S Passes expiring between 1 January and 30 June 2020 can be renewed for up to one year under the pre-2020 salary requirement.
  • Existing S Passes expiring from 1 July 2020 onwards can only be renewed if they meet the 2020 minimum salary requirement.
