In August 2022, Singapore announced a new immigration program, called the Overseas and Specialist Network Pass (ONE Pass).  The program aims to attract the world's top talents to live and work in Singapore. Specifically, it also helps to solve problems that foreigners may face, most notably allowing allows spouses of ONE Pass applicants to work in Singapore.

Singapore's latest talent attraction program ONE Pass comes at a time when several other countries around the world have announced new working and talent visa conditions with more incentives to attract foreign talents.

The UK most recently announced the Visa program for high potential individuals and Germany has issued the Opportunity Card (Chancenkarte).  Chancenkarte will even allow highly skilled foreigners to immigrate to Germany without the need for a job guarantee from any company operating in the country.

Singapore's ONE Pass is aimed at a narrower group including high-income earners who can earn at least SGD 30,000 (US$21,128) on average monthly, and those with excellent achievements in fields of arts and culture, sport, science and technology, research and academia.

Some argue that the ONE Pass is quite similar to the Employment Pass (EP) program that the Singapore Government issued earlier, allowing domestic companies to recruit foreign experts and skilled workers with the minimum qualified salary already enacted.

However, the ONE Pass has a much broader scope than the EP.  This program has additional benefits to increase the attraction to the world's top talents who want to live and work in Singapore.  ONE Pass is valid for 5 years that is longer than EP.

The program is also not tied to specific employers, providing flexibility for those who are just starting a company, changing jobs or exploring new opportunities.  Spouses of ONE Pass holders are also granted the right to work with a letter of consent from the main applicant, instead of having to apply and be eligible for a work permit from the Singapore Government.

Furthermore, the ONE Pass also helps to shorten the FCF's mandatory advertising time from 28 days to 14 days and process the rights to hire foreign workers faster than the EP.
