The MOM Singapore work permit is issued by MOM Singapore for those unskilled or lower skilled manpower that is employed in various industries in Singapore. This work permit is issued only to the foreign nationals from approved countries making them eligible to work in Singapore. The approved source countries and the workers might differ on the nature of the industry. The Singapore authorities levy hefty fees from the employees to abstain from getting such work permits.
There are strict quotas of these permits that can be obtained by the industries. This is done to encourage in-home employees rather than giving jobs to outsiders.
