SINGAPORE- Change of Status Online Now Possible
Effective immediately, it is now possible for employers to apply for a change of status for employees (e.g. from S Pass to Employment Pass) using the Ministry of Manpower’s online system, EP Online.
Applications for change of status can be submitted via the company’s EP Online account. An administrative fee of $20SGD will be charged. Passes for dependents (both Dependent Passes and Long Term Visit Passes) should be amended after the principal applicant’s change of status has been completed.
Once the application for change of status has been approved, the employer must cancel the old work pass before the new one will be issued.
- Note that change of status applications may now be made online, using EP Online
