Work Permit Application Form for a Foreign Worker/Trainee in Non-Domestic Sector

Key Information: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. An employer who wishes to employ a foreigner (except Singapore Permanent Resident and Dependants Pass holder under the Employment Pass scheme), needs to submit a Work Permit application for the foreigner. A foreigner must be at least 16 years old at the time of the Work Permit application. A non-Malaysian worker must not be in Singapore at the time of the Work Permit application. He can enter Singapore only after the employer has obtained the In-Principle Approval letter and furnished a Security Bond of SGD$5000. All employers who employ foreign workers are required to pay the monthly foreign worker levy by Inter-Bank GIRO. If the employer has not made prior arrangements for payment of foreign worker levy by GIRO, he has to complete the attached GIRO Application Form and mail it to the CPF Board. The employer is advised to sign up for GIRO early as the processing of GIRO applications takes about 4 weeks. The GIRO deduction for levy due each month will be made on 17th of the following month. The employer is required to maintain sufficient funds in his bank account for the GIRO deduction, failing which interest for late payment will be charged. The deduction will cease once the Work Permit is cancelled. The employer should continue to pay the levy using his current payment mode to the CPF Board until his GIRO application is approved by the bank. The CPF Board will inform the employer when the GIRO deduction of the levy will take effect. The employer does not have to pay any fee for GIRO application.
