Applications may be submitted online through the EP Online Portal and follows with a $105 fee as well as a 3-week processing time. In rare cases, applications might need to be submitted through the mail, which can be done at any SingPost and follows with an 8-week processing time.

If approved, the Ministry of Manpower will submit an In-Principle Approval letter via the EP Online portal. Individuals will have 6 months to arrive in Singapore and obtain their Employment Pass. They may also need to be fingerprinted and photographed, but not always.

If the application is rejected, it can be resubmitted within 3 months of rejection notice, addressing the reasons why it was not approved.

Employment Passes can be renewed by the ministry for up to 3 years in total and can be submitted as early as 6 months but no less than 2 weeks prior to expiration. Failing to do so will result in submitting a new EP application.
