The Dependant’s Pass (DP) entitles the immediate family member of a work visa holder to live in Singapore. To qualify for dependant privileges, the sponsoring work visa holder must earn a minimum monthly salary of SGD 6,000. The status of the Dependant’s Pass is connected to the validity of the sponsor’s Singapore work visa. Learn More Note: From 1 February 2019, a Verification of Vaccination Requirements (VR) document issued by Health Promotion Board is required for new DP applications for children 12 years old and below. Existing DP holders and foreign children born in Singapore don’t need this document.
