Re: How long do you think COVID19 will last

I see Australia is talking about trying to become "Covid 19 free". I think Singapore / Taiwan and NZ have a chance of doing the same. That means internally they can open up again at the expense of tourism but at least they can operate domestically and attract investment on that basis. I feel Singap...

Re: COVID-19 CB Enforcement

I expect to see a tightening up. I think Singapore is going to try to become certifiably "Covid 19 free" (which will decimate the tourist industry) as soon as possible so that it can become an effective centre of operations and trade again during the next year or two or mass deaths in Indonesia, th...

Re: COVID-19 CB Enforcement

So there was a workpass holder who got revoked. Seems he worked in "essential services". After his shift, he went to dinner, but then stayed out until after midnight. It doesn't say what time he finished work. But either way, that was enough for him to lose his WP with no other apparent warning. htt...

Re: How was your Circuit breaker Day 1?

Actually even when the beach (East Coast Park) was open, there was a large sign about what was and wasn't allowed. Fishing was specifically called out as not being allowed.

Re: How was your Circuit breaker Day 1?

Beaches are closed. After seeing ECP on Friday evening it's easy to see why.

Re: How was your Circuit breaker Day 1?

Super super bored ..................... The number of people jogging and cycling is crazy!!! And sitting together on towels, drinking beers or Starbucks or eating fast food on picnic tables, and even deploying tents on the beach. ](*,) We're going to be locked down even more by Monday at this rate.

Re: COVID-19 CB Enforcement

Aside from our resident troll's "limited knowledge" the only one I remember was not an EP/WP holder but a PR who had his Re-entry permit shortened but that was due to not declaring recent travel which was pretty dire under the circumstances. The Clip below from a CNA broadcast at the time. https://...

COVID-19 CB Enforcement

The Gov said yesterday for those violating Circuit Breaker measures: It said that stern written warnings will be given to first-time offenders, and anyone who commits a second offence will be fined S$300, while a third offence will lead to the person being charged in court.

Re: How was your Circuit breaker Day 1?

Same observations. The small park connector which runs along Haig Road has been at 3-4x as many people as normal. It's a narrow PC, maybe 4-5m wide with walls on either side for half of it, so people were definitely not 1m+ apart.

Re: Terminate Tenancy Agreement

The EP has not yet been approved and issued yet. He has no residency therefore he cannot rent legally. As long as all he holds is the IPA then he is not yet resident (the IPA is good for a maximum of 6 months I believe and if not taken up by then it is withdrawn). You have to be present in Singapor...

Re: Terminate Tenancy Agreement

Can you get the employer to cancel the EP? But I still don't think this will help. Just because you can't legally reside in a unit doesn't preclude you from having a lease. For example, look at the expat clause. Generally after 12 months, if you leave SG, you are off the hook for the rest of the lea...

Re: Bann period from singapore

Is her boyfriend a Singaporean or PR? He can appeal on her behalf, but since she was actually working don't count on it going through. I'm aware of a single female who was recently deported on entry. Her BF jumped through immense hoops and was able to appeal and get the 6-month ban rescinded. But ba...
