Ministry of Manpower (MOM)

The Ministry of Manpower (MOM) forms a part of the Government of Singapore with a mission to provide better work opportunities and secure retirement for Singaporeans. It is accountable for the formulation and execution of labor policies.

MOM is in charge of providing manpower-related services and information like work passes, employment practices, workplace safety and health, and the labor market information.

Foreigners who wish to work and stay in Singapore need a valid visa. Issuing of Work Permits, S Pass, EP, PEP, and EntrePass are within the ambit of MOM. Also, a foreigner who intends to study or live in Singapore with their family members would either require a Student Pass, Long term Visit Pass (LTVP), or Dependant’s Pass (DP), issued by MOM, to do so.
