Can an Employment Pass holder switch to an S Pass?

Employment Pass (EP) holders can consider a switch if they no longer meet the prevailing EP criteria. However, employers must ensure that:

There is no need to cancel the EP before applying for an S Pass. When the application is approved, cancel the EP before getting the S Pass issued.

For those with dependants, they need to apply for new Dependant's Passes under the S Pass.
