PEP application: minimum salary & supporting documents

Post by dax123 » Mon, 18 Jun 2012 10:37 am

I’m planning to apply for a Personalised Employment Pass.

The official application form does not ask to supply any supporting documents with the application. However, it seems that other people have voluntarily supplied supporting documents with their application (e.g. payslips, CV, academic transcripts, ect).

I have the following questions:

1. If I choose to supply supporting documents with my PEP application, should these documents be certified/notarised/legalised in any way or are ordinary photo copies sufficient?

2. My fixed monthly salary is currently just under S$8,000. However, I will receive a pay increase next week which I hope will take my fixed monthly salary to around S$8500-9000. The requirement of S$8000 relates to your ‘last drawn’ monthly salary. As such, I would meet this requirement after I receive my pay increase. Would it be problematic that my pay has only recently increased to this level? I was thinking of only supplying my most recent payslip (which shows the increased amount) with the PEP application rather than payslips for a 3 month period as some other people appear to have done. Does anyone have any thoughts on this?

Any other (general) tips in relation to PEP applications are also greatly appreciated!

Supply as much as you can, unless you're already here on EP and supplied it then.

Doesn't have to be notarized, but it should be clear and must be in English.

If it only asks for the most recent pay-statement, that's the one I'd submit. It's not a credit application, so no real need to establish you've been making that much for that long.
