Am I allowed to send my Work Permit or S Pass holders to work at my client's place?

Yes. In general, your foreign workers (Work Permit or S Pass holders) are allowed to work at your client’s place. However, you will continue to be responsible for their well-being and maintenance.

Your company needs to fulfil the following conditions before your workers are allowed to work at your client's place:

  • Your workers are at your client’s place to provide your company's services under a contractual agreement.
  • Your company remains the employer which manages the workers and pays their salary.
  • The work activities are relevant to the occupation and sector which your workers are employed.
  • A cleaning firm that is providing cleaning services to a condominium.
  • A power generator manufacturer that is installing or repairing the generator at a client's factory.

However, there are restrictions for groups such as the construction and marine shipyard sectors, and performing artistes:

  • Your construction workers can only work in a construction worksite.
  • If you are a resident contractor of a shipyard, your marine trades workers can only work in that shipyard.
  • If you operate an entertainment outlet employing Work Permit (Performing Artiste) holders, they can only work at the location specified in your Public Entertainment Licence (PEL) from the police.
