Nov. 8, 2012 - PRLog -- (Sunnyvale, CA)- Singapore has tightened the sponsorship criteria for dependants of foreign workers. The new legislation, effective since September 1, 2012, aims to restrict the rapid influx of dependants into Singapore and affects P1, P2, S pass and Employment Pass holders.

Dependents of the overseas worker who are residing in Singapore since September 1, 2012 are not impacted. However, if a foreign worker has changed employer, lost the job or the validity period of the worker’s work pass had ended after September 1, 2012, the dependents of the foreign worker are subject to the revised regulations.

Key highlights of Singapore’s new Expat Regulations:

*        S Pass and Employment Pass holders will be eligible to sponsor parents, spouses and children, if they earn minimum of 4000          

         Singaporean dollars

*        P1 Pass holders can sponsor parents, spouses and children, but cannot sponsor parents-in-law

*       P2 Pass holders can sponsor spouses and children, but cannot sponsor parents or parents-in-law
