Re: How to apply for PR while on 90 day visit pass?

You need to apply for an LTVP. I doubt you can get PR without being resident and maybe working for about three years first. An LTVP is usually valid for 12.months and if your spouse is a citizen it allows you right to work as well with a Letter Of Consent.

Re: Parents long term Visa

Not really. You need to sponsor them for an LTVP and I think only PR/SC can do that unfortunately.

Re: Short Term Work/Permits needed?

He won't succeed in working here legally with out an EP or SP or WHP unless he works remotely.

He actually 'may' get away with going in every day on an SVP for 30 days and coming back a week later for another 30 days. There are a lot of risks.

Re: Report a safety issue with condo

1. Grounding practice in new condo's is shit IME. Singapore is desperately short of PUB licensed electrical inspectors and it's showing.
2. The margins in the condo business are so tight I'm sure they've gone for the cheapest bidder on the elevator - what brand is it? Noname Guanzhou lift company?

Re: Special Gathering of Eagles

I have a suggestion: The "Chinese Druggists Association" on Thywitt Road. A little small maybe but 28 beers on tap and definitely quieter than the CBD. A shortish walk from Kallang MRT.

Re: Report a safety issue with condo

Try the BCA and SCDF. Both of those have powers of enforcement for these issues. Note that I would focus on the elevator issue with BCA and the lighting issue with SCDF. 10:1 your MC has been delaying required repairs and replacement of the elevator winch / rope etc.

Re: Please advice: LTVP or DP? Where to marry?

Mom will not give a positive answer until you actually apply. That's their way. They will never pre commit.

Re: Please advice: LTVP or DP? Where to marry?

I just got my EP and I will plan the wedding for the end of next month but Singaporeans are telling me that both DP and LTVP are difficult to be obtained. Is this true? My only concern is that since we will only get married after my EP there is a chance that MOM considers the marriage ''fixed'' onl...

You do realize the maximum you can draw from the standard Singapore socket is about 2,500 watts? I agree with uprating but that's over the top. Also what type of transformer? Not one of those shitty auto-transformers from Sim Lim.....

Re: PLease help evaluate my chance In getting PR

You need to work for 3 years first before realistically having any chance for PR. Focus on work first.

Re: Conversion of foreign driving licenses for PR

I am PR for 8 years and I went to convert my license after BTT, however the staff require my Entry Permit and REP instead of my NRIC. Entry permit was issued to me long time ago and I lost it. I searched online and couldn't find any info on how to re-print it or can NRIC be used for conversion inst...
