Re: Arrested in Singapore for swearing at police officers

I assume OP (Jay) is either still in Changi without internet or back home feeling pretty sorry for himself. It's a lesson for us all to learn.

Re: COE RENEWAL

Plenty of COE loan providers out there. An expat forum is not the place to ask this sort of domestic question.

Re: Buy car under personal or company

Those days are gone (in the old days Q plate cars have some weird tax arrangement). There is no difference unless you need a company to front you because you're un-insurable?

There are good reasons to take up SC citizenship. It is a tax haven. ANZ will tax you to death.

I don't think modern countries allow renunciation without proof of second citizenship now.

Re: Termination during Probation Period

If you earn more than $4,500/month you are not covered under the Employment Act, therefore your only recourse is what is written in your contract. If you didn't actually read your contract before you signed it, you are on your own. If you earn less than $4,500/mo Termination and notices MUST be the...

Re: Apply again

Westerners don't have much hope now. The stats are against us because of the lower % of 'others' in the pop'n means a very low approval rate for PR.

Re: Termination during Probation Period

What a draconian contract. I'd say you're best bet is to advise the company you don't intend to accept an offer for permanent status once you're probation is completed. This is because a change of status means effectively a change of contract. If you inform them now of course they may immediately te...

Re: Ltvp for parent of PR urgent help!

Rejected is rejected. You're Indian I assume? Singapore doesn't seem to want to accept the collateral loading of having Indians bring their parents in as carers for their children. Is your income about the limit?

No chance. Seek rectification of the issue and damages for costs while you wait for the issue to be fixed, if necessary via SCT.
