As an employer, you must do so in order to protect the interests of both parties should a dispute arise.
This applies to:
- All types of work passes.
- All new applications.
- All renewals.
MOM considers any document to be written consent if it shows a foreigner’s agreement to be employed by the employer. An example will be a signed employment contract.
There is no particular format, but a verbal consent will not be accepted.
If the foreigner objects to a work pass application being submitted on their behalf, we will ask to see the written consent. MOM may take enforcement action if it could not be produced.
