Singaporean Administration

Information about the national administrative centres of Singapore - where to go for work permits, the SingPass, and government eServices...

The Singapore government websites are well organised and provide a great deal of useful information about how the system works. Nearly all interactions with government departments (applications, payments, etc.) can be done online, using SingPass.

  • Start with the Singapore Government web portal: Click here


Most people living in Singapore find that it is useful to get a SingPass. This is a "personal access password" which allows transactions to be made with various government online services using one common identity and password.

All Singapore citizens and permanent residents, as well as holders of an Employment Pass or a Dependant's Pass, may apply for a SingPass. Some Work Permit holders are also eligible.
