Airline employment on dependant's pass

Postby skyray64 » Thu, 02 Nov 2006 10:13 am

My understanding is that someone on a dependant's pass cannot work for anyone other than the employment pass holders' company.

My wife is a Chinese national with several years with a well-known Scandanavian Airline as a F/A.

Should we choose to relocate to Singapore (again!) will she face challenges getting employment with an airline because of the statement I made in the first paragraph? Are their any airlines where this is Less of a challenge than others? The need is to be Singapore based as well.

Thanks for your feedback - appreciate it!

I think this is untrue.

Please direct your question to mom_hq@mom.gov.sg for further guidance. SIA used to recruit China FSS (ages ago) on work permit, but the other airlines advertisements usually state Singaporean or Singapore PR.

This is patently untrue. Following from the MOM website:

For Dependants of Employment Pass Holders

If a Dependant's Pass (DP) holder wishes to take up employment in Singapore, the employer is required to apply for a Letter of Consent (LOC).

The Dependant's Pass holder can only begin employment after the employer has received the Letter of Consent.

The Letter of Consent ceases to be valid:


* When the Dependant's Pass is cancelled; or
* The pass holder is no longer employed by the company.

Thank you one and all. Yes it seems my information was out of date (if not completely wrong).

So, the plan would be to get PR as soon as practical if she wants to keep flying.

Appreciate your insights!
