Re: spass/epass rejected - reapply 3rd time --- PLEASE HELP!

Well, this setback means you could nail down U.S. citizenship if that interests you. You need at least five years of U.S. residence to naturalize.

Re: spass/epass rejected - reapply 3rd time --- PLEASE HELP!

Your US office could fly you in an out on a regular basis with no major problem. Are you a US citizen? I'm thinking the Singapore / US Free Trade Agreement may have some value here. No I'm not...I am from Vietnam - I wanted to move to singapore since it's closer to home -- and don't know why it hap...

Re: spass/epass rejected - reapply 3rd time --- PLEASE HELP!

Then, I wanted to move to Singapor...

Hi - I only graduated last year ... You are missing the point. Singapore wants to control cheap foreign Labour. At 3k, and being sent from US, you will be seen as cheap Labour, which means your company should pay and train A Singaporean instead. If you had been offered 6k or more, you may be seen a...

Re: RE: Re: spass/epass rejected - reapply 3rd time --- PLEASE HELP!

I've been training here for a month and ready to relocate to Singapore -- so I don't know what should I do now -- My boss said they have included both people in Singapore & US office to help but since I failed twice :( the chance probably too slim :( Coming from US, if your boss has offered you, sa...

I do have only one year of experience but I int...
