As what came up in the news a day before, there are some revisions towards the criteria of applying an Employment Pass.
In essence, with effect from 01 Jan 2017, the qualifying salary for Employment Pass will be raised from the current $3,300 to $3,600.
To prepare companies for the transition, those who are due to expire before that, they can be renewed up to 3 years based on current criteria. For the passes due to expire between Jan 1 2017 and June 30 2017, renewal will only be a year, where thereafter the new criteria will be imposed.
