Singapore Dependant’s Pass (DP) Guide
Overview: What Is Dependant’s Pass In Singapore?
The Dependent Pass Singapore is a type of long term pass suitable for the direct family members of the work pass holder (holding on to Employment Pass or S-Pass). This pass is usually issued the same validity period as the main pass holder and the main pass sponsor must make a minimum monthly salary to be qualified to sponsor he/her dependant. Unlike the Long Term Visit Pass (LTVP), a Dependant Pass holder can work in Singapore under Letter of Consent (LOC) as long as they have a company sponsor. However, an application for LOC still needs to be filed via an agency or the employer.
