Re: Good International Moving Company

I have used APAC Relocation service for International movement. It was from Singapore to India via Air Shipment. Overall process was smooth starting with quotation all the way till door delivery. Good part is about communication - they will keep you informed at all steps. Good partner ecosystem for ...

SC rejected for 13 years PR, appeal or resubmit?

I thought SC should be easier for a PR holder over 13 years. But unfortunately my case was rejected after one years waiting. I've been PR since 2006. I left Singapore during 2012 to 2017 due to company relocation. and I relocation back Singapore in Mar 2017. I submitted SC in 2018 with both of my ki...

Relocating Furniture

Hi there everyone. I'm new here and would like to seek advice regarding relocation out of Singapore and what to do with used furniture. We have been living in Singapore for about a year now, and have bought most of our home furniture (as we thought we'd be living here longer). Since we'll be moving ...

Re: Bringing significant other to SG from USA. Need advice.

Hi all, First I apologise for hijacking this post but I have a somewhat similar situation and I'm looking for answers. BTW, I'm also new to this forum so forgive me if I misstepped. I'm a SC and my wife (US) of 8 years (we got married here) are thinking of relocating to Singapore in the next 3 years...

Re: Any recommendation for international mover

I sorely regret hiring Raffles Relocation. This sloppy company made a nightmare of my move from Singapore to Shanghai. When my shipment arrived in Shanghai, I discovered that Raffles Relocation had broken my irreplaceable antique lamp, broken another heirloom table lamp, and broken my expensive teak...

Re: Rejected the transfer of REP?

@sundaymorningstaple Thank you for your advice. 1) You must have a good reason to believe that I will not be getting another renewal. Can you share your reasons? 2) I really do not think that I posting from Thailand is a good reason. Anyway, kindly comment. 3) My company prefer me to work in Thailan...

Re: Newbie here, would Singapore be a good relocation choice for me?

I think you're misreading the market for "software engineers", whatever that is. The culture isn't the issue, unless you're being an assholian, bull in the china shop American when it comes to integrating with your fellow workers. Code jockeys with attitude don't get far. No... the real pr...

Re: Newbie here, would Singapore be a good relocation choice for me?

Getting over cultural differences is problematic, but not insurmountable. I'm a Yank and I just past 36 years here, 25 of 'em as a PR. I also have a local wife and a son & daughter who were born here and are both married now and the eldest (daughter) just gave me my 2nd grandson on the 18th, 12 ...

Re: Newbie here, would Singapore be a good relocation choice for me?

The biggest problem he's going to have is finding a job in the first place, let alone worrying about how to get PR. Too many from SE Asia with IT degrees who will work a heck of a lot cheaper than he probably will unless he gets transferred here by a MNC employer from a western company. Methinks he...

Re: Newbie here, would Singapore be a good relocation choice for me?

Pardon me for asking such a newbie question but, how difficult/likely is getting PR for myself (American, IT worker) and also for my wife (Thai, housewife). I'm mostly asking from a "starting a family" situation in mind. I might just have to move back to America for that, but I was wonder...

Re: Newbie here, would Singapore be a good relocation choice for me?

Have got some friends who are planning to move to Thailand to retire. Is it really so bad , as what you say doesn't seem to be getting much press and many folks I know are looking at Thailand to retire , this is with the knowledge that they will be unable to work whilst there. There are more high-l...

Hi. I'm a 33 year old American who is a software developer with 10 years of experience in America. I have a Thai wife, married legally in Thailand. 2 questions. 1. Would I be able to get her and myself relocated to Singapore on a residency status? 2. This question is a little more subjective. Would...
