The Overseas Network and Expertise Pass (ONE Pass)

The ONE Pass is a 5-year work pass that can be renewed for top talents in various fields. ONE Pass holders can work for multiple companies in Singapore at the same time without needing a new pass or an employer’s support.

The ONE Pass is expected to benefit sectors
