Re: Employment pass issue delay - 6 weeks!

Again, you contract is only as permanent as your employment pass. If the MOM doesn't renew your EP/S/WP it doesn't mean squat what your employment contract says with the employer. All contracts in Singapore are only as valid as the length of the Employment Pass. If no renewal, job over. kaput, finis...

Moving to Singapore to attend Duke-NUS; Possibility of getting PR for lower tuition?

Re: Storage & Relocation

Most of the international moving companies have provision for storage. I don't know what it costs, and I'll bet they'll want to pack your stuff in their boxes in order to store it. I am not aware of self storage in Singapore although I am sure they exist.

Re: Moving household appliances from India

If shipping cost is no issue, then the electrical requirements are the same... 240 volt, 50 Hz. You should verify the amperage on your dryer, though... the majority of dryers I have seen sold in Singapore use between 10 and 13 amps... and thus, a standard electrical outlet. If your dryer has a highe...

Moving household appliances from India

At the risk of sounding like a lame question, can I ask if it is advisable or okay to move household appliances like washing machine and refrigerator to Singapore from India?

Re: Moving to Thailand

I've used Alliance Movers when I moved out of Singapore. The Singapore team (I suspect they are all Malaysians) is very efficient, careful and polite. Unfortunately I've only used a company in SG once so I do not have experience with other companies to compare. But I can tell you 2 things for sure: ...
