The “Letter of Consent” (LOC) issued by the Ministry of Manpower (MOM) in Singapore is a document that allows eligible foreign individuals to work in Singapore without needing to obtain a traditional work visa.

The Letter of Consent is typically issued to dependents of certain categories of work pass holders (e.g., spouses or children of Employment Pass or S Pass holders) and foreign professionals on certain types of visas (e.g., Dependant’s Pass, Long-Term Visit Pass) who wish to work in Singapore.

The LOC allows its holder to work for a specified employer and duration, subject to certain conditions. These conditions may include restrictions on the type of work or the employer the individual can work for.
