Singapore is welcoming to professionally qualified expatriates, whom the Government and media refer to as "Foreign Talent". Over 110,000 expatriates and 7,000 multinational companies operate in Singapore and it is recognized for its ability to bridge Asian and Western cultures.
For professionals it is known as the Employment Pass. The Employer applies for this pass and any change of employer will require a new application. Singapore also offers a Personal Employment Pass (PEP) which can be applied for by existing Employment Pass holders who meet certain criteria. The PEP is not tied to the employer, and the holder can remain in Singapore for up to six months while they evaluate employment opportunities.
