Entrepreneur Pass (EntrePass)

The EntrePass – also known as the Entrepreneur Pass – is a Singapore work visa scheme for foreign entrepreneurs who would like to start businesses in Singapore.

We have drafted more than 100 over successful business plans for foreign expatriates and business owners.  The foreign entrepreneurs can incorporate a Singapore Private Limited (Pte. Ltd.) company and act as the sole local director of the company.

MOM along with EDB (Economic Development Board) and Enterprise Singapore review and grant employment passes to foreign entrepreneurs under the EntrePass scheme.  We also advice clients whom own more than 30% shareholding in the company to apply for this pass.

From 1st September 2013, MOM has changed its regulations to include investments from Venture capitalist and Government accredited Agencies.  Xignam is the first immigration firm in Singapore to be able to link foreign entrepreneurs up with these agencies including EDBi, Enterprise Singapore, IMDA (Infocomm & Media Development Authority) and VCs so that they can successfully obtain their EntrePass.

The benefits for EntrePass include:

  • Easier approval for first time applications by foreigners.
