How do I open a bank account for my foreign worker?

For both new and existing foreign workers, you can apply for their POSB account:

  1. Log in to WP Online.
  2. Choose Bank Account on the left menu.

POSB will notify your company of the outcome by post within 7 working days.

If approved, POSB will also post your worker’s ATM card and PIN mailer to your company’s address within 7 working days. Your worker does not need to collect the card from the POSB Account Services Centre at Kaki Bukit.

Besides the POSB account, your workers will also get free MWC membership.

Alternatively, your worker can approach another bank to open the account.
