Singapore is a beautiful country with a high quality of living and first-class infrastructure. Boasting a world-class airport with excellent facilities and connections, as well as an efficient and extensive public transport network, it is constantly ranked first in the world for its city infrastructure. As the first ranking investment destination in Asia, and the 2nd in the world, Singapore is a much sought-after destination for investors. The stable government, safe environment, vibrant lifestyle and strong economy in Singapore are reasons why it continues to be a perennial favorite for foreigners seeking economic prosperity and a better quality of life.
The Global Investor Programme (GIP) is an initiative by Economic Development Board (EDB) of Singapore. This is a popular programme which assists foreign investors and entrepreneurs in setting up and developing their business in Singapore. It provides links to local business networks and more opportunities for business collaborations.
At AIMS, we provide the following services:
The Entrepreneur Pass (EntrePass) is an Employment Pass for foreign entrepreneurs who would like to start a new business in Singapore.
Applicants must fulfil the following requirements:
The key to an EntrePass approval is a comprehensive business plan that outlines the goals and objectives of the proposed business venture plan, including a strategy to meet the requirements stipulated by the Ministry of Manpower (MOM). Our experienced team at AIMS would be able to assist you in the drafting of the business plan and the submission of application even if you are based overseas.
AIMS will be able to assist individuals who have already secured a job in a Singapore-based company and require the relevant work visas. In addition to individual work passes, AIMS will also be able to assist with companies who wish to transfer employees from overseas offices to the Singapore office.
The Employment Pass is for foreign professionals and executives who are interested to work in Singapore.
Employment Pass holders can apply for the Dependant’s Pass and/or Long-Term Visit Pass for their family members.
In addition to the application of Employment Passes for the relevant professions, AIMS also offers tailored business solutions for the purposes of the EP. Please contact us firstname.lastname@example.org to find out more.
The Personalised Employment Pass is a scheme introduced to overcome the limitations of the Employment Pass. Unlike the EP which becomes invalid after the holder leaves their job, a PEP holder is able to remain in Singapore for up to six months in between jobs to evaluate new employment opportunities.
The S Pass is for foreign mid-level skilled workers, such as technicians who are interested to work in Singapore. Mid-level skilled foreigners who earn a fixed monthly salary of at least $1,800 will be eligible to apply for S Pass.
Other passes include Dependent’s Pass, Miscellaneous Work Pass, and Training Work Permit.
