Is there a prescribed minimum wage for foreign workers in Singapore?

No.

As a matter of national policy, MOM does not prescribe minimum wages for all workers in Singapore, whether local or foreign. Whether wages should increase or decrease is best determined by market demand and supply for labour.

Employers should pay their employees (whether local or foreign), based on their skills, capabilities and competencies. A competitive pay structure can help a company motivate their staff, and retain valuable employees.
