The Employment Pass Scheme allows skilled individuals to work in Singapore as long as they are continuously employed with a minimum monthly salary of S$3,600 (~USD2,600).
Also there is no official quota as to how many are allotted each year, with the permit itself open to renewal every 1-2 years.
The Entrepreneur Pass Scheme is also similar but differs in the nature of employment, namely for entrepreneurs instead of employees.

There is also the Personalized Employment Pass (PEP) which has a limited duration of 3 years for overseas professionals with a minimum monthly salary of at least S,000 (~USD 8,000) or an Employment Pass holder with a fixed monthly salary of S,000 (~USD13,000).
