My EP, S Pass or TEP candidate has just graduated and has not received their certificate. What documents should I submit for the application?

If the applicant has graduated but has yet to receive their educational certificate, employers can still declare the qualification in the work pass application. This must be accompanied by a verification proof confirming that the candidate has been awarded the declared qualification, from either of the following sources:

  • A background screening company listed on the MOM’s website to verify the candidate’s qualifications. The background screening company may ask you to provide the final transcript or a school letter to facilitate this in lieu of an educational certificate.
  • The awarding institution’s online verification portal (if any). If the candidate’s details can be found on the awarding institution’s online portal, the employer can upload the verification proof from it when applying for the work pass.
