Holders of both these Employment Pass (EP) categories are eligible to apply for Dependent Pass (DP) The Dependent Pass (DP) will be granted for the spouse and children (up to a maximum of 18 years old) of the Employment Pass (EP) holder. Documents to prove that these are the true family members of the Employment Pass (EP) holder are required to apply for any Dependent Pass (DP).
Lastly, to apply for the Employment Pass Category III (EPIII), the employer will require prior approval from the Ministry of Home Affairs (MOHA). This Employment Pass category is for skilled workers earning between MYR3,000.00 to MYR4999.99. Employment Pass Category I and II are renewable provided all the necessary conditions are fulfilled. Employment Pass Category III (EPIII) is renewable up to maximum of two times only.
