Foreign workers refers to semi-skilled or unskilled workers who mainly work in the manufacturing, construction, and domestic services sectors.

Foreign talents refers to foreigners with professional qualifications or acceptable degrees working at the higher end of Singapore’s economy. The Singaporean government has carefully constructed a system under which different types of employment passes are issued to immigrant workers according to their qualifications and monthly salaries.
