One notable participant in this year's festival is Veremark, a Ministry of Manpower (MOM) accredited background screening company. Veremark will be showcasing its featured service, the MOM Education Verification Package, which is designed to help employers in Singapore ensure compliance with Ministry of Manpower (MOM) new regulations when hiring foreign workers. In this article, we will delve into the importance of the MOM Education Verification Package and explore what attendees can expect from the HR Tech Festival Asia 2023.
Importance of Employment Pass (EP) for foreign workers in Singapore
Employment Pass (EP) is a work visa issued by the Ministry of Manpower (MOM) to foreign professionals, managers, executives, and specialists who wish to work in Singapore. The EP is granted to highly skilled individuals who meet specific salary, education, and experience requirements. It is an essential document for foreign workers and their prospective employers, as it permits them to legally work and reside in Singapore.
Role of MOM in EP applications
MOM is the government body responsible for regulating Singapore's labor market, including the issuance of work visas such as the Employment Pass. Employers in Singapore must apply for an EP on behalf of the foreign workers they wish to hire, and MOM evaluates these applications based on various factors, such as the applicant's qualifications, job scope, and the employer's track record.
New requirements for EP applications starting September 2023
To ensure the authenticity of the qualifications of foreign workers and their institutions' accreditation, MOM has introduced new requirements for all EP applications starting September 2023. Employers must now submit third-party verification proof to confirm the validity of an applicant's diploma-level qualifications and above. This additional step aims to safeguard the integrity of the Singaporean labor market by ensuring that only qualified, reliable foreign workers are granted Employment Passes.
