Singapore – Higher Minimum Salary for S Pass Applicants

Effective January 1, 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 January 1, 2020 can be renewed based on the pre-2020 salary requirement.
  • Existing S Passes expiring between January 1 and June 30, 2020 can be renewed for up to one year under the pre-2020 salary requirement.
  • Existing S Passes expiring from July 1, 2020 onwards can only be renewed if they meet the 2020 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, and to contact an immigration specialist for case-specific advice.
