What Is Singapore PEP And Its Eligibility Criterion

PEP is referred as Personalized Employment Pass, which is a special employment pass given to high earning and qualified employees wishing to work in Singapore. To apply for this pass, you need to know about its eligibility criteria, procedure of application, documents needed charges, and the mode of submission.

Who are not eligible for PEP?

This employment pass cannot be availed by any business owner. This pass is not associated with any specific employer. People who hold this pass are not permitted to begin their business venture in Singapore. PEP pass holders are not allowed to get employment within the company that they own or engage in any entrepreneurial activities. A PEP holder can be an earning director of a company of which they are not the owner.

During this period, the pass holder can enjoy his stay in Singapore without any need to apply for another type of stay related visas. Another benefit of PEP is that people who have this pass can come with their spouse and children of age less than 21 years.
