You can apply for a Letter of Consent to work in Singapore if you are an eligible LTVP/LTVP+ holder who is the spouse or unmarried child of a Singaporean or permanent resident.
Who is eligible
To be eligible for a Letter of Consent, you need to be one of the following:
- An LTVP/LTVP+ holder who is married to a Singaporean or PR.
- An unmarried child (under 21 years old) of a Singaporean or PR, who holds an LTVP.
NOTE: If you are a Dependant’s Pass holder seeking employment in Singapore, you will need to apply for a Work Permit, S Pass or Employment Pass instead.
The LTVP/LTVP+ has to be valid for at least 3 months, and you must have a job offer from a Singapore employer.
NOTE: You are not allowed to work in objectionable occupations such as a dance hostess.
What is the duration
The duration granted for the pass is based on the earlier of these:
- What the employer indicated in the LOC application.
- The expiry date of the LTVP/LTVP+.
The LOC stops being valid when:
- The LTVP/LTVP+ is cancelled or expires.
- You are no longer employed by the company. The employer still needs to cancel the LOC.
Is the Letter of Consent renewable
When to renew
For LTVP or LTVP+ holders, you can apply to renew up to 6 months before the LOC expires. Before applying, check that the LTVP or LTVP+ is valid for at least 3 months. If it is not, the pass holder needs to go to the Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA) to renew the LTVP or LTVP+.
Foreign worker levy or quota
No foreign worker levy or quota required.
