The Ministry of Manpower or MOM in Singapore requires certain documents to be submitted along with the employment pass application. These documents need to be translated into English so that they can be read and understood by the officials.
The Immigration & Checkpoints Authority or ICA also requires certain documents to be submitted in order for the application to be processed. These include educational certificates, work experience certificates, and so on.
Work Permit Application:
If you are planning to apply for a work permit in Singapore, you will need to get your employment pass translated as well. This is because you will be required to submit the employment pass along with your work permit application so that the ministry can confirm your eligibility.
Confirmation Of Employment:
If you are moving to Singapore on an employment pass, it is important that you get a confirmation of employment letter from your company in order to secure housing such as an apartment or HDB flat. The letter has to be in English in order for it to be accepted by the HDB or the landlord.
