Re: Be SmArT: Use the Self Assessment Tool

MGEORGE, You are not entirely correct. Maybe you should stick with non-Malaysians. Malaysians with degrees can get an EP (not S pass) with a $2400/mo salary. I know. I just hired two Entomologist BSc freshers from the University of Malaysia. One, three months ago, and the other one last month. Oh, ...

Re: EP: Can I travel in and out of Singapore (Malaysian Citizen & previous EP holder) while my new company applies for E

Hey all, Just wanted to speak to some people who probably know a lot more than me. I'm switching jobs and my previous company has already cancelled my most recent EP which has given me the Visit Pass, I am Malaysian however, so I'm not sure if I need this? My new company has fortunately already sub...

Re: EP Processing Time 2018

Did a renewal, followed almost instantly with a new EP application within a couple of weeks after that.

It took EXACTLY 21 days. For both. No joke. 21 days identical.

There was someone on here just recently who got theirs in less than 12 days, I believe.

Re: PR Rejected

Just thought I'll update this thread. His PR got approved last month. Applied with a salary of SGD 4200. Yeah, he just probably was too new back then in 2016. More salary now, a couple more NOA's....and he's right there today. Interesting this whole PR application process. I am about to embark on i...

Re: Do I need to fill Form 4 for my Wife and Each of my Kids?

Hi, I am working in Singapore on EP and applying for PR with my whole family. I have a dumb question, any help with that is much appreciated. My question is: Do I need to fill form 4 for my Wife and each of my kids separately? I have searched internet and could not find any answer to the question. ...

Re: Visa/EP with sponsorship?

I currently work for a US-based company managing sales in APAC and am considering the possibility of a one-year stint in Singapore with my family. My company is not willing to create a Singapore business entity right now, so we're looking at what alternative options, if any, exist for me to be spon...

Re: Dual Citizen SG + MY

Well, I'm glad we got that settled. In summary, the absence (or presence) of a foreign country's stamp is merely a pretext for a border control officer to ask a question or two. (But so is the color of your shirt.) Say what ?? Dude...EVERY foreign passport that comes into and out of Malaysia gets s...
