Question about EP Salary Requirements

Post by bobrovde » Tue, 18 Dec 2012 3:19 am

Hi

At http://www.mom.gov.sg they specify salary requirements for Employment Passes:

P1 - Fixed monthly salary = $8,000
P2 - Fixed monthly salary = $4,500
Q1 - 3000$

But it is not clear which salary exactly they have meant...

Is it requirements for my CURRENT salary with CURRENT employer (e.g. current employer at my home country)?
Is it requirements for PROSPECTIVE salary with NEW employer (who makes the Offer and EP sponsorship) ?

Could you advice me please where can I find obvious clarification of these terms at www.mom.gov.sg ?

Have tried to find, but didn't find any clear specification around this point.

Thanks

Do note that these are the minimum requirements so you may not be given any of these passes even with the salary level above 8k.

But it is not clear which salary exactly they have meant... It's perfectly clear what they meant.

Is it requirements for my CURRENT salary with CURRENT employer (e.g. current employer at my home country)?
Is it requirements for PROSPECTIVE salary with NEW employer (who makes the Offer and EP sponsorship) ?

If, as straightforward as the MOM site is, you cannot understand, you might want to rethink coming to Singapore. The only pass that you need a minimum "current" salary is the PEP and unless that salary is at least $18.000/month don't bother.
