Labour market access

On 15 August 2011, the prime minister of Singapore announced further access restrictions for the Singaporean labor market. From 1 January 2012, the minimum salary to qualify for the "Employment Pass" shall be raised.
 
The designated minimum salaries, depending on category, are:

  • $2,800 for Q-types (previously $2,500);
  • $4,000 for P2-tpyes (previously $3,500); and
  • $8,000 for P1-types (previously $7,000).

 
A prior raise of the minimum salary levels had become effective recently on 1 July 2011.
 
Tighter requirements on "Employment Pass" were put ahead as of 1 September 2012. The requirements concern the possibility to bring members of their family in the country. For details on the specifics for each category, please refer to the source.
