The Personalised Employment Pass (PEP) is a new scheme to facilitate the contributions of global talent to Singapore.
The Personalised Employment Pass (PEP) is a work visa which allows foreign professionals to work in Singapore for up to 5 years and you will not be tied to any employer. Since PEP is awarded based on individual merit, you can apply this visa individually without having a job in Singapore. However, you can only be unemployed for 6 months upon collection of the visa.
Currently, the issue of an Employment Pass (EP) is tied to a specific employer. Any change of employer requires a fresh application. If an EP holder leaves the company, his EP is cancelled and he must leave Singapore unless he finds employment with a new company. In contrast, the new PEP is not tied to any employer and will be granted on the strength of an EP holder’s individual merits. A PEP holder is able to remain in Singapore for up to six months in between jobs to evaluate new employment opportunities.
Benefits of having a PEP – Job Flexibility
PEP holders can generally take on employment in any sector. There may be some jobs where prior permission is required, and details will be made available. PEP holders do not need to re-apply for a new pass when changing jobs.
PEP holders are also given the flexibility of a continuous period of up to six months without a job to evaluate employment or work opportunities. They will not be required to leave Singapore during this time.
