Is the Entrepass For Me?

EntrePass Applications are for foreign entrepreneurs who lack the necessary educational qualifications or do not qualify under the Employment Pass scheme but have a proven track record of successful entrepreneurial experience.

The application process for the EntrePass is more complex than for the Employment Pass. Also, it requires a minimum paid-up capital amount of S$50,000.

Company Set-up Requirements

The key requirement for the application of an EntrePass is a ten-page comprehensive business plan that outlines the goals and objectives of the proposed business plan and includes a strategy to meet the requirements stipulated by the Ministry of Manpower (MOM).

The business venture must demonstrate, within one year, that it will meet the requirements of employing a minimum number of local employees and achieving a specified total business expenditure.

  • Minimum: One shareholder plus one resident director plus one company secretary.
  • Local registered office address.
  • Must be registered as a private limited company with a minimum paid-up capital amount of S$50,000.
  • Applicant must own at least 30% of the company shares.

Note: The application for the Singapore EntrePass must be submitted within six months after the incorporation of a company. Upon approval, the applicant can set up a company as a single Director and Shareholder within 1 month from the date of Entrepass approval.

For more information, please refer to the MOM website.
