Miscellaneous Work Pass
A foreign worker coming to Singapore on a short-term assignment of not more than 60 days will have to get a Miscellaneous Work Pass or MWS. The MWS is the new replacement of the earlier Professional Visit Pass.
The MWS is required by the following types of foreign workers:
- Foreigners involved in activities such as organizing or conducting a workshop, seminar, gathering, religious/political/community debate, conference or legitimate gathering.
- A foreign religious worker who wants to visit to talk about religion.
- A foreign professional from the journalism fraternity or an accompanying team member without being sponsored by the Singapore Government authorities.
The MWS is valid for a period of 60 days.
