Why do I need a Letter of Consent as a DP holder?

Dependant’s Pass holders are not permitted to draw a salary and work in any company in Singapore. LOC holders are not permitted to be named as directors and/or shareholders in any company.

Dependant’s Pass holders who wish to draw a salary from any company in Singapore will require a Letter of Consent from MOM. However, if they wish to draw a salary from the company, they will not be able to list themselves as a director / shareholder / owner / partner due to MOM’s strict laws. In the event that the Dependant’s Holder wishes to hold an appointment in any company, no salary must be drawn and there will be no requirement for a Letter of Consent.
