Taking up employment

When Pre-approved Letter of Consent (PLOC) holders take up employment in Singapore, the prospective employer needs to notify MOM.

To take up employment in Singapore, PLOC holders must:
  • Show your employer the PLOC that was issued to you together with your valid LTVP/LTVP+.
  • Comply with other specific legal requirements in Singapore (e.g. registration requirements to practise selected professions).

Notify MOM

Employers of PLOC holders must notify MOM:

  • Before the PLOC holder starts work.
  • Within 7 days from their last day of work.
You also need to remind your employee to renew their LTVP/LTVP+ with ICA 3 months before expiry.

Comply with licensing requirements

As an employer, you must also comply with licensing requirements, such as for massage establishments, or security licensing from the Police.
