Re: Procedure to apply Singapore PR ?

You don't apply for Singapore PR. Singapore PR applies for you.

Re: Employment Pass Approval

There is nothing to advice, it depends on the company's credentials. If they have enough local staff and they haven't abused the EP privilege, you will get it. I don't think you have anything to do with it.

Re: Canada PR

hahahahah 100k? Seriously you'll be lucky if you land a job at all.. I know experienced engineers who could only find drafting jobs there for their first decade. The median salary is ~CDN70,000. Remember you'll be discriminated against, taken advantage of and have no paper quals worth wiping your a...

Re: Canada PR

The only reason to migrate to Canada is for your children or if you are just starting your work life. All the adults I know who migrated there as professionals have taken a massive step back career wise. The three people I know who have done OK moved there in their 20's. Thanks, my career here isn'...

American jobs can move to Canada as Trump makes immigration difficult.

Re: Canada PR

Yes, weather is my biggest issue. Australia has lovely weather. But I feel Australia is kind of isolated and if a recession hits it will be very bad. Canada has trade ties with US and it is easier to move to US.

Canada PR

Just curious, are there people here who are frustrated with SG's PR policies and considering other countries, like Canada for example? Now that Australia and UK have tightened immigration, Canada seems to be the last country still accepting PRs and there is a good chance with the express entry. Any ...

What? Start their own company? You either have it or you don't have it. There is nothing to strive towards.

Re: Taking out an old Unit Trust Investment when you're not a resident?

So I've left Singapore for 2,5 years now, though I still come back there to meet up with my friends whenever I'm back in SE Asia. Before I left, I had created a Unit Trust Investment Funds (I think that's what it's called, I don't have the papers with me at the moment as I'm writing this) with usin...

Re: Employment Pass Renewals - 2018

Yeah, it is a bit like the govt is nudging employers to consider alternatives rather than go with the easy way of employing foreigners. This makes sense, if foreigners are very easy to hire, then local talent will never get developed, why would employers want to hire Freshers and spend money and tra...

Re: Employment Pass Renewals - 2018

6K could be considered low depending on what you are doing. So if you are doing something specialized in IT for example, which locals can't do, then your employer has to justify your value by paying an appropriate salary. The govt is pushing employers to consider locals or even hire freshers and tra...
