Singapore Dependant Pass (DP) is a family member relocation visa issued to spouse and unmarried children (below 21 years) of foreign employees holding a work pass (i.e. an Employment Pass or EntrePass). A separate DP application must be filed for each eligible family member.
A Dependant Pass holder’s status in Singapore is tied to the status of the work pass holder. As long as the work pass holder is gainfully employed in Singapore, the DP holder is eligible to live in the country as well as leave and enter Singapore freely without having to apply for a Singapore visa every time.
A Letter of Consent allows a Dependant’s Pass holder to work in Singapore.
To be eligible, the applicant must:
- be a Dependant of an Employment Pass holder
- secure a job offer with a Singapore employer
- have a Dependant’s Pass that is valid for at least three months.
The processing time is usually 1 week as we will submit the LOC application online. For Manual submissions, it takes approximately 4 – 6 weeks to process.
The Letter of Consent expires at the same time as your Dependant Pass; therefore you should renew the LOC whenever your DP is renewed.
