You just found a helper and you need to hire asap, but you did not pass the Employers’ Orientation Programme (EOP) yet? You have your NRIC, Employment Pass or Dependant Pass but you don’t have a SingPass?

We are happy to explain how you can get things done in – almost – no time.

1. Visit a Community center to get your SingPass activated instantly and start the EOP

Visit one of the 46 SingPass counters in Singapore. There is always one located in your neighborhood, the map is available on this page.

Bring your NRIC, Employment Pass, or Dependant pass, and you will be able to setup your SingPass within a few minutes.

Alternatively, you can request online to receive a one-time activation code at your residential address. Please keep in mind that it takes one full week before you receive the code so if you need to hire a helper soon, you probably prefer to visit a SingPass counter.

2. Download the SingPass mobile app, you’ll need it to login to the EOP course

You will need this app to authenticate yourself when you register for the online EOP. You can find more info and download the app on the SingPass mobile website.

3. Sign up online for the Employers’ Orientation Programme (EOP)
