Do I need to verify the qualifications of the candidate each time I submit a work pass application?

No, you only need to verify the candidate’s qualifications once.

However, if you are applying for a candidate whose previous employer submitted a verification proof before 1 September 2023, you will need to resubmit the verification proof. You can do so by following the steps below:

  1. Ask the background screening company to reissue the verification proof with an MOM verification reference number. (Note: If they no longer have records of the verification proof, you will need to verify the candidate’s qualifications again.)
  2. Key in the MOM verification reference number in the Employment Pass application form.
