Can a shareholder of a company apply for an Employment Pass (EP)?

Can shareholder of Singapore company apply for Employment Pass in Singapore? What are conditions?


As a shareholder of a company, you can apply for an Employment Pass, provided the company agrees to employ you. The application will be filed by the employer company.

The application outcome is decided based on the merits of each case, your background, work experience and monthly salary.

Having a shareholding in the company does not provide any special rights to get an employment pass. There is no concept of a right to get EP just because you are a shareholder.
