As a resident or common contractor, what happens if my shipyard no longer supports me?

Without the shipyard’s support, your company will no longer be classified under the marine shipyard sector. You will also not be allowed to perform work pass transactions under this sector. To continue employing work pass holders, you must submit a business activity re-classification request using iSubmit. Choose request type 6.

If you have a proposal to develop a productive workforce with a strong Singaporean core, you can consider applying for transitional manpower support under the Lean Enterprise Development (LED) Scheme.
