Immigration Update: Singapore


28 November 2016

Taking Up Secondary Directorship for Employment Pass Holders

With immediate effect, the Ministry of Manpower (MOM) has formalised the process for appointing Employment Pass (EP) holders who will be taking up secondary directorship in a company that is not their sponsor entity for the EP.

Eligible Entities or Companies in Singapore must now apply for a Letter of Consent (LOC) if they wish to appoint an EP holder of another related Company to their Board of Directors.  The LOC must be obtained first before any secondary directorship is taken up by the EP holder.

MOM will generally grant an LOC only if the Company is related by shareholding to the EP holder’s Employer and/or EP holder is taking up secondary directorship for purposes related to their primary employment.


There is no impact to existing Companies or EP holders who are already on the Board of Directors of another related Company.
