Re: Will my application for PR be approved automatically if my unborn child is a Singaporean citizen?

So there’s a quota per year for white people. When does that quota get renew? Read the statistics annual report. http://www.singstat.gov.sg/docs/default-source/default-document-library/publications/publications_and_papers/population_and_population_structure/population2017.pdf In there you'll see th...

Re: Will my application for PR be approved automatically if my unborn child is a Singaporean citizen?

No but it won't hurt. The biggest issue is that if you're white the number of PR approved is very low per year. This one falls into the category of typical Singapore urban myth. Fortunately the Internet is slowly removing belief in such things.

Re: Working Remotely from Singapore as a Tax Resident - which pass/structure?

Called Australian High Commission and learned the reason they can't witness/notarise statutory declarations relating to de facto status is that Singapore does not legally recognise de facto marriage.

Re: Working Remotely from Singapore as a Tax Resident - which pass/structure?

Please update us. I once had an offshore entity via OCRA. They have an office in Singapore and may be able to advise on entities and I am sure they will know about banks and payment gatways.

Re: Looking For LTVP Information

Your DUI won't matter nor will your age if it is a genuine marriage. No such thing as a fiance visa in Singapore. There is a common law marriage LTVP but you need to check if the US Embassy will support your case. Oh and no one here cares that much about age gaps. Half the westerners are married to...

Re: Approved E-PR

Anyone approved via online PR application? No, all online PR applications go into the bit bucket, then the bits are converted to electrons and used to power the slot machines at MBS. I thought ICA decided PR by drawing names out of hat every month? (well five hats for the four races and "other...

Re: Average salaries in Singapore

I'm in digital forensics/cyber security and was making in the range of $110k USD (excluding bonuses, OT, RSUs, etc.) prior to moving here. I've been in negotiations with a number of companies who have been extremely persistent in questions about my previous salary and all have insisted that I shoul...

Re: LTVP Child of Singapore PR Non-Working Mother

It's unlikely your baby would not get an LTVP renewal without a dramatic change in the current policy. You may need to mover to a DP or student's pass at some point.
