Rikvin Provides Services for Singapore Personalised Employment Pass (PEP Singapore)
Rikvin, a leading company registration firm in Singapore offers quality assistance for Personalised
Employment Pass. This type of work visa was formally introduced on January 1, 2007 by Singapore’s
Ministry of Manpower (MOM), which aim is to unbinds Employment Pass holders and non-permanent
residents from a specific employer.
According to Rikvin, “Personalised Employment Pass (PEP) is the perfect visa if you are a foreigner seeking
employment in Singapore but do not want to be engaged contractually to any specific employer for a time
period up to five (5) years.”
“Note also that PEP is granted by Ministry of Manpower (MOM) based on individual’s merits and
professional accomplishments. It does not require the pass holder to have been already engaged by an
employer in Singapore. However, note that upon collection of the visa, a new PEP holder has only a
maximum of 6 months to seek employment in Singapore. Failure to secure an employment beyond the
grace period will result in the work visa being revoked,” Rikvin added.
The basic eligibility requirements were also presented, including a minimum salary of S$7,000 per month,
a former P1 category Employment Pass holder who resides overseas, a current P1 category Employment
Pass holder, a current P2 category Employment Pass holder with at least two years of working experience
in a P category of Employment Pass that earns an annual income of at least S$30,000 and a foreign
graduate from institutions of higher learning in Singapore that has at least two years of working
experience on a P or Q1 category Employment Pass.
It was also discussed that PEP Singapore pass holders are not allowed to start their own company in
Singapore. However, they are allowed to hold a minority Shareholding in the company including acting as
one of the Directors.
Rikvin also said that PEP couldn’t be renewed after the five years has been consumed. After five years,
you are given the option to continue working and living in Singapore with an Employment Pass or apply
for Singapore permanent residence. You can also choose to cancel your PEP at any time. But once
canceled, you will not be eligible to reapply for PEP.
