Re: Average salaries in Singapore

29L PA is a lot of money in India compared to 90K in SG. A HR lady once told me roughly you must get double the amount in Singapore inorder to consider it as an on par salary. So the equivalent of 29L PA is 120K in SG and frankly I think you should get it if you really have the skills to get 29L in ...

Re: Employment Pass Renewals - 2018

Given I am well above the $6000 limit for the new EP with DP attached, is there any benefit applying this year rather than next? My current PEP expires in February. I was going to apply in early Jan. Thanks. Let's put it this way, there is nothing to lose if you apply this year. Sent from my Redmi ...

Re: Employment Pass Renewals - 2018

My base salary is 8k and my EP just got renewed for 3 years. So I don't have to worry until 2021, provided I have my job. I think 8k is nothing these days. It is not even worth staying here if I don't get 8k. Sent from my Redmi Note 4 using Tapatalk 3 years? I get 2 years, so does everyone I know. ...

Re: Employment Pass Renewals - 2018

Vendors will raise salaries for employees and also ask for higher billing rates from their customers. Basically Singapore becomes a high cost center. How else will employers mitigate higher cost? Demand for higher productivity from their staff, make work hours longer, hire only more talented senior ...

Re: Aussie up for caning for alleged molestation

This is the difference between 1st world and 3rd world countries. In 1st world countries people in positions of power and influence get caught. In 3rd world countries...well, ykwim.

Re: Aussie up for caning for alleged molestation

Globally there are more and more molesting cases coming out to the fore recently. I was shocked when Charlie Rose was named.

Re: LTVP agency - parent of EP holder

From what I understand employers outsource the paperwork for pass application to agents, but the authorised signatory is the employer. Employer pays the agency the commission for doing the paperwork. I think in OPs case the employer is telling that they won't pay the commission for doing the paperwo...

Re: Relocating to Singapore and searching for primary school

There is a Facebook group called "Real singapore expat wives". You will get good advice there. This forum is pretty much dead, for such purposes.
