Why does the advertising requirement apply only to companies applying for EPs and not for S Passes or Work Permits?

We haven't made this compulsory for companies applying for S passes or Work Permits because there are other tools, such as levies and dependency ratio ceilings (DRC), that enable companies to search for suitable Singaporeans before applying for S Pass or Work Permit.

However, we monitor the hiring of S Pass and Work Permit holders, and periodically review if the advertising requirement needs to be extended to these groups.
