    The Foreign Worker Levy, commonly known as 'levy' is a pricing mechanism to regulate the number of Foreign Workers (including Foreign Domestic Workers) in Singapore. While they are not required to pay Central Provident Fund (CPF) contributions for Foreign Workers, employers are liable to pay monthly levies to hire employees who hold Work Permits or S Passes.

    If a Foreign Worker on the Foreign Worker Levy Scheme is subsequently granted Singapore Permanent Resident status, he will be placed on the CPF scheme. This will take effect from the day he is granted Permanent Resident status.

    The following factors will determine the amount of levy to be paid:

    Worker's qualification
    Dependency Ceiling (for selected sectors only)
    MOM will first look at the worker’s qualifications to decide if the worker is skilled. Workers who possess relevant academic or skills-based test qualifications and certificates, will be classified as skilled workers.

    For construction, process & marine sectors:
    Employers pay the foreign worker levy according to the qualification of these workers.

    For manufacturing & service sectors:
    Workers will be further assigned to different tiers within the company Dependency Ceiling limits. Read up on how this works.


    The following illustrates the levy you pay for each foreign worker.

    What is part time Singaporean minimum salary?

    $0.00

    What is part time Singaporean average salary?

    per hour = $12

    Per week 30 hours = $360

    Per month or 4 weeks = $1440

    The MOM shall not take below $1500 per month as a head count?

    So that Singaporean Salary with more than $1500.00 per month

    So that part time company relatives and friends who just received CPF without salary from company will reduce in company CPF head count.
