Singapore launches new, enhanced assessment tool for Employment Pass and S Pass sponsors
On 1 August 2023, Singapore’s Ministry of Manpower (MoM) launched an enhanced Self-Assessment Tool (SAT) for employers seeking to sponsor Employment Pass (EP) and S Pass applicants. From 1 August, employers that seek to sponsor EP applications under the upcoming COMPASS framework can use the enhanced SAT, which now assesses firm- (i.e., sponsoring company) and individual-level attributes and issues a projected score for the applicant for each COMPASS criterion. Employers must have an EP eService account to use the enhanced SAT. Previously, employers could access this tool without logging in to the EP eService.
