Re: Awaiting working pass

IRAS requires that employers give one month notice if they know an employee is leaving. (I found that reference.) That said, I cannot actually find anything requiring that employment agreements include a one month notice period. Even the employment agreements that have one month notice periods also ...

Re: Awaiting working pass

Do you disagree with that advice, Ecureilx? If so, what specifically do you disagree with?

Oh, do please Continue your noble work, with your scary caring.

OK, so you have no disagreement, correct?

Do you have any personal experience with international marriage -- marriage to a spouse with a different citizenship from your own?

Re: PR chances for Japanese

(b) If truthful, and out of an abundance of caution , add a word to your "Director" title in your PR application. If you are the "Sales Director," say so. If you are the "Regional Director," say so. Won't hurt, might help. You once again mislead and suggest that he lie...

Re: Awaiting working pass

Employment notice periods are only private contractual matters between the employer and employee, aren't they? Is there any legal requirement in Singapore for an employment agreement to have a notice period? I can't think of any law the employer or employee would be breaking if they mutually agree t...

Re: Moving back to SG after 12 years

Ecureilx, I don't know who you're disagreeing with. Luxmee is a Singaporean citizen and has an unqualified right of entry, stay, and employment in Singapore. Nobody wrote otherwise. Her SO does not have those same rights, and marriage (to Luxmee) improves the odds of his entry, stay, and/or employme...

Re: PR chances for Japanese

So even English below a U.S. third grade reading level is too difficult to comprehend? Wow. Here's the advice, again: (a) Tell ICA the truth. (b) If truthful, and out of an abundance of caution , add a word to your "Director" title in your PR application. If you are the "Sales Directo...

Re: RE: Re: Awaiting working pass

Haha, actually if i finished my 30-day STVP and re-enter Singapore...I still got one last 30-day STVP. That's called a mini "visa run." There's no guarantee you'll be able to re-enter Singapore. I'll repeat my advice. One thing you should do, just before you leave, is to take anything you...

Re: Moving back to SG after 12 years

OK, so you don't disagree. Moreover, it's not "Too Much Information" if we care about Luxmee and wish all the best for her.

Re: Awaiting working pass

I agree with x9200 also, for now. However, I can think of one thing you might have to do in due course. There's no guarantee you can physically reenter Singapore if the time comes when you have to leave, when your 30 day STVP is nearly exhausted. One thing you should do, just before you leave, is to...

Re: Awaiting working pass

I cannot find anything official that speaks to what happens after your permit/pass ends, except that you must leave Singapore before the STVP expires. Before a lease begins, private and HDB landlords have to perform due diligence to ascertain whether prospective tenants can legally stay. As I read i...

Often inside the box (a casket). :P

According to what SMS previously wrote, he'll die as a PR. He's one future example, hopefully far in the future.

Re: RE: Moving back to SG after 12 years

I am not sure what SO means, but getting married to him will ensure you can get him to Singapore.... SO="Significant Other." (I agree with x9200.) Legal marriage isn't sufficient to sponsor a foreigner for immigration into Singapore (for a LTVP); there's no guarantee. ICA will also consid...
