So how does it work?
EP applications will be scored using the COMPASS framework based on a wide range of factors relating to both the applicant and the company. Applications are scored on 4 foundational criteria and 2 bonus criteria, where additional points can be scored. Points can be scored for both the individual and the firm applying. Let’s start with the foundational criteria:
Is anyone exempt from COMPASS?
Applicants are exempt from COMPASS if they fulfil the following criteria:
● Earning at least S$20,000 fixed monthly salary
● Applying as an overseas intra-corporate transferee under the World Trade Organisation’s
General Agreement on Trade in Services or an applicable Free Trade Agreement that Singapore
is party to, OR
● Filling a role on a short-term basis (one month or less)
Overall, COMPASS will serve as a comprehensive scoring framework, ensuring businesses recruit not only high-quality professionals but also a tool to create a diverse and fair workforce.
