Minus PR who is married to SC, chance for non chinese and without SC spouse is lower, she said 80% of foreign spouses approved and about 4K+ approved out of 20K total. Last year they said they move 5K to this year as they was granted approval at end of year, so it seems like they take average 15K ea...

Re: Tourist visa - multiple entry

Hi - my partner (not wife) will be joining me in Singapore. I have an employment pass sponsored by my work. She doesn't have a job here, and will be looking for work.

It depends largely on the profile of people they want to get at this time. I know many Malaysian Chinese get approved with just 4 years of PR but another Fillipino couple with 12 years PRship and earning exceeding 15K for both with a son got rejected repeatedly since 2010, they deeply regret it as t...

I visited a factory that makes components for well completions in Nusajaya yesterday. Malaysia Boleh for sure. That place is rocking along. Wait until you actually lived there and you will regret deeply. No way Malaysia can catch up with Singapore, simply because there are systematic things and str...

I know its tough but MOM/ICA should check the ratio of nationalities in a team for which the foreigner is being hired. This is to prevent enclaves forming within companies of certain nationalities when the team lead or manager comes of that nationality. Certain nationalities are not comfortable bos...

From what I can see, banks follow each other as they want to be competitive and sooner or later they will move majority of IT jobs to India, Credit Suisse did, so does Morgan Stanley and other banks are planning too. After all, most IT staff in singapore are Indians so it does not make sense paying ...

As we can observe recently, for Malaysian Chinese, no matter how profile is, they will always approve within a few weeks, no matter how low salary, how low education, how short the stay, being Malaysian Chinese will offset all these as Singapore consider Malaysian Chinese as defacto local, even for ...

Spouse of a PR can apply for PR but spouse of an EP cannot, however in current situation, it is too hard to get PR even if you are qualified to apply so yes EP has higher privilege than PR and probably higher than citizen since LTVP+ is not easy to be granted at first time
