  •  You must have a track record running a successful business in your home country
  •  A Business Plan for the new company prepared according to the ministry’s guidelines

Time for incorporating

The actual incorporation in Singapore can be completed in a few hours as the whole process is computerized. However, the overall process can take anywhere from one day to few days depending on the following factors:

  •  Name reservation: Before being incorporated, its name has to be reserved first. Assuming there are no objections to the name proposed, the name reservation process can be accomplished in less than an hour. However, if the name conflicts with an existing name or if the proposed name contains some sensitive words that may require a review by relevant authorities, the name approval process can be postponed to few days or weeks.
  •  Signing of incorporation documents: If you are in Singapore, this is a quick and easy process. However if you are located overseas, the logistics involved in signing and sending the signed documents can take few days.

Time for processing Entrepreneur Pass

  •  It takes about 2 weeks to draft the business plan and prepare the Entre Pass application for filing.
  •  Once filed, it takes authorities approximately 6-8 weeks to review the application and notify of the outcome.
  •  The authority will issue you an Approval In-Principle (AIP) letter, after which you have one month to incorporate the company and inject the capital. Depending upon whether you are located in Singapore or overseas during this time, this process may take anywhere from a couple of days to a couple of weeks. The AIP deadline may be extended, subject to the authorities.
  •  Once the authorities have notified of the company incorporation and capital, they will take approximately 2 weeks to send the final approval letter (In-Principal Approval), after which you have 6 months to visit Singapore and collect your Entre Pass.
