Personalised Employment Pass (PEP) Application
The Personalised Employment Pass (PEP) was introduced in January 2007 to attract highly qualified foreign individuals to work and live in Singapore. Unlike the Employment Pass (P1, P2, Q1, S pass) or the Entrepass, the PEP holder is not tied to any employer and cannot start or own a business in Singapore. PEP is granted upon the strength of the applicant’s individual merits. PEP holders have the flexibility of remaining in Singapore for up to six months without a job, to evaluate new employment opportunities.
Highlights of the PEP
An application for a Personalised Employment Pass can be made via PEP Online or manually. The following information will be required for completion of Form 8:

An administrative fee of S$70 will be charged by MOM/SingPost for every PEP application submitted.
