SINGAPORE – Higher Minimum Salary for S Pass Applicants
Effective 1 January 2019, the minimum qualifying salary for the S Pass will be increased from SGD 2200 to SGD 2300.
Existing S Passes expiring between 1 January and 30 June 2019 can be renewed for up to one year under the pre-2019 salary requirement. Existing S Passes expiring from 1 July 2019 onwards can only be renewed if they meet the new minimum salary requirement. The salary should reflect work experience. Older, more experienced applicants need higher salaries to qualify. Fixed monthly allowances can be included in the salary calculation.
Employers who may be affected are encouraged to review the salaries of their S Pass holders.
