Professional Visit Pass (PVP) applications

What’s new?

  • Effective 15 Jan 2019, the maximum duration allowed for a PVP application is 12 months.
  • For any further extensions, the Company must instead apply for an Employment Pass (EP) for the applicant, subject to both the Company and applicant meeting all relevant requirements.
  • For Students under Practical Training, the maximum duration for a PVP application is 6 months with no extensions.
  • Companies under the category of Food & Beverages/ Restaurant/ Cafe / Convention Centers are not eligible to apply PVPs under the position of “Student Under Practical Training” and “Attending Training”.

What’s the impact?

  • Companies should better manage the duration requirements for their short-term assignees so that the maximum allowable period of 12 months is allocated and applied for efficiently.
