The above serves as general guideline only and the EP application is still at the discretion of the Ministry of Manpower. Successful applicants may bring in their families, and whether a specific family member is eligible will depend on the salary threshold of the EP-holder:
For other type of family members (such as common-law spouse, unmarried handicapped children above 21 years old, and unmarried step-children under 21 years old), EP-holders with a minimum fixed monthly salary of $5,000 may apply the Long-Term Visit Pass. For parents of the EP-holder, the EP-holder must earns a minimum fixed monthly salary of S$10,000 for applying the Long-Term Visit Pass (LTVP). Similar to the DP, the Long-Term Visit Pass (LTVP) application(s) can be submitted at any time after the EP application is approved. The expiry date of the LTVP(s) will be tied to the expiry of EP.
