The Ministry of Manpower (MOM) has increased its standard processing time with immediate effect for new and renewal work pass applications. The outcome for the most common type of work pass for professionals and mid-level skilled workers (e.g., Employment Pass and S Pass), will be known within three weeks upon online submission, as compared to seven days previously. The reasons for the increase in processing time is due to additional measures by MOM to check and verify work pass applications. In addition, the authority is also ensuring the adoption of fair employment practices by employers when they apply for work passes (new and renewal) for foreign talents.
