Independent or Tied does not matter anymore. MAS now monitor agents based on conduct. So message is clear, the integrity of the person is more important.

If the below is only what you are more concerned on.

- Vaccinations for my daughter
- Dental
- Maternity coverage as we are planning to have our second child in about

Just get it from BUPA. No need to look elsewhere.

You should get the underwriter in UK to know you are travelling to Singapore. And whether it covers you here. If you are not staying in Singapore for long, there is no reason why you need to purchase one here.

Long Term visit pass. IF you are on the 5 years scheme, you are eligible to get a medical insurance in Singapore. This is official. But of course you must already own a property here and a valid bank account with savings.

10k is not enough. You need to put in buffer to cover your rental.

To be honest 1000 a month is too low, unless your girl is also working here. If not 1000 to support the both of you is too low.

All boils down to your budget in the end. If you do not wish to pay for agent fees, invest more time on searching on the internet for some websites on room rental in Singapore. Save cost, stay in HDB apartment.

You should just get a Singapore Citizenship if you still have long term interest here in Singapore . Just get it done. Of course after having Citizenship it is easier to solve your wife's problem. But of course you might have to give up your citizenship back home, have you weigh out the disadvantage...

Try servolve. I personally know the boss too. But actually you can just do everything by yourself if you have got the time. Have to research at Ministry of Manpower website and Immigrations website.

Just get a shield plan. Very affordable. In case you convert to a Singapore PR, you can just port over your plan.
