As an example, Dependant pass holders cannot get the following services on their own accord: a mobile phone contract, an Internet provider or a TV provider, etc.
Both Employment and Dependant passes are granted by the Ministry of Manpower for periods ranging from 1 to 5 years and are renewable upon expiry.
