How are PMETs in my firm counted under COMPASS for C3 and C4?

Employees are counted as PMETs if they are:

  • Foreign employees earning at least $3,000 in fixed monthly salary declared in their work pass application. This excludes In-Principle Approvals, and passes that need not be tied to a single employer (i.e. Work Holiday Pass, Tech.Pass, ONE Pass and Pre-Approved Letter of Consent).
  • Local employees (Singapore citizens or permanent residents your firm contributes CPF for) earning at least $3,000 per month, based on their CPF Ordinary and Additional Wages declared for CPF contributions.

The fixed monthly salary of $3,000 is equivalent to the minimum qualifying salary for S Pass, and will be revised alongside future increases to the S Pass qualifying salary.
