Studying in Singapore: Do you know the four types of employment visas?
Some international students will choose to stay in Singapore to work and work after completing the courses at the University of Singapore, but they still need a new employment visa. For different applicants, Singapore has four different visas to choose from.
The requirement to work in Singapore
Employment visas are required to work in Singapore. At present, there are four types of employment visas in Singapore, which are aimed at different applicants. Domestic people who want to go to Singapore for development, need to “take the right seat” when applying for a visa. To this end, the editor will introduce you to the four types of employment visas in Singapore:
1. Class P Pass
For those who apply to go to Singapore to engage in high-level management or technical work, that is, domestic “golden collar” people. Such persons are employed for positions with a monthly salary of more than S$7,000 and are exempt from academic requirements, otherwise, they must have a university diploma recognized by the Singapore government.
2. Q Pass
For those who apply to go to Singapore for general management or technical work, that is, domestic “white-collar” people. Such persons generally require a university diploma recognized by the Singapore government.
3. Class S Pass
For professional workers or technicians who apply to go to Singapore to engage in professional and technical work, that is, domestic “gray-collar” people. Such people generally need to have relevant technical qualifications and work experience, and their academic qualifications are not high.
4. Class R Pass
For those who apply to go to Singapore to engage in labor work, that is, domestic “blue-collar” people.
These four types of work passes are currently the main work visas in Singapore, which correspond to people of different classes in the country, and are comprehensive. I hope that you will carefully compare your situation when considering the visa process.
Three ways to apply for a Singapore student visa
Those who apply to study in Singapore should obtain an invitation letter and Form 8 form from Singapore before entering the country, and then apply for a passport at the place of residence. After the passport is completed, you can apply for a visa at the Singapore Embassy in China.
There are three ways to apply for a Singapore student visa:
1. Send the completed Form 8 and a copy of the first 10 pages of the valid passport to the inviting party. The inviting party (guarantor) will apply for the entry permit for the applicant at the Singapore Immigration Bureau. The pass is passed to me as my entry document. The guarantor in Singapore will submit the original pass to the Singapore Immigration Checkpoints. After the overseas students arrive in Singapore, the checkpoint will check the fax copy of the pass they hold, issue a special pass, and ask them to apply for a work pass from the Singapore Immigration Bureau. Apply for a visa. The pass must have the approval number, the stamp of the immigration office or the signature of the immigration officer, and the name and passport number of the student studying abroad.
2. If the overseas student has not received the pass, but has been informed of the approval number, he can apply for an entry visa at the visa office of the Singapore Embassy in China with the invitation letter, the completed Form 8 form, the original passport, and the passport photo.
3. Apply for a visa on a separate sheet: The applicant sends a copy of the first 10 pages of the passport and the completed Form8 form to the inviting party to apply for a visa on a separate sheet for the applicant at the local People’s Bureau (the visa is on the copy of the passport), and then send it to the applicant. The applicant can enter the Singapore border with a separate visa (of course, he must also go through the exit procedures with his valid passport, exit card, international travel health certificate, etc.).
Applying to Study in Singapore
Lawsonjob Study Abroad reminds everyone: Those applying to study in Singapore should first obtain an invitation letter and Form 8 form from Singapore before entering the country, and then apply for a passport at the place of residence. After the passport is completed, you can apply for a visa at the Singapore Embassy in China. Students studying abroad, whether at public or private expense, must apply directly to the Immigration Bureau for a student pass through a school, institution, or guarantor in Singapore. Once approved, students studying abroad will receive an entry visa card issued by the Immigration Bureau.
