Employment Pass - Before you apply

Acceptable qualifications

Acceptable qualifications can include good degrees, professional qualifications or specialist skills. MOM evaluates each application and qualification on its own merit, based on a wide range of criteria including:

  • Global and country institution rankings by independent accreditation boards such as the QS World University Rankings, Academic Rankings of World Universities, etc.
  • Employment outcome of the institution's graduates.
  • The institution's enrollment standards.
Note:

  1. MOM does not have a list of approved institutions. Possessing an acceptable qualification does not automatically guarantee a successful Employment Pass application, as the applicant may need to satisfy other criteria, such as qualifying salary or professional skills.
  2. Similarly, applicants who do not possess an acceptable qualification may not necessarily be rejected for Employment Pass. MOM will consider, on a case-by-case basis, applicants with proven track records and exceptional skills-set, but who may not have the qualifications required by the enhanced Employment Pass framework.
  3. To assess if you are eligible for an Employment Pass, please use the Employment Pass/S Pass Self-Assessment Tool.
