Re: Staying in SG after EP expires

Thanks - yes 90 days would cover us until we have to leave. I'll check with the High Com - appreciate your reply.

Re: Staying in SG after EP expires

Thanks Martin. Would I get another 30 days for each run? In that case I'd only need to do it twice, and they'd be genuine trips around the region.

Staying in SG after EP expires

Hi all. Looking for some visa advice here. I'm British, and have been working on Singapore for just over 3 years on an EP, living here with my wife and kids who are on DPs. I'm starting a job in Australia in a few months. My EP runs out next month, and will be converted to a short term visit pass fo...

No, that quote above is woefully low. International school teachers get way more than that, and the ones I know get accommodation allowance thrown in as well.

Re: Insurance and changing jobs

Thanks Strong Eagle, that makes sense. I've asked the new provider, but not sure I'll get a response as I'm not officially an employee yet until I sign on the dotted line.

Another case of somebody relying on their employers insurance rather than getting their own, I'm afraid!

Insurance and changing jobs

Hi all, I'm moving to a new job next month. My insurance is provided by my employer. I'm currently waiting to have an operation, that would have been covered by my current insurance. Does anyone know if when I move company, my new insurance company will refuse to pay, as it's a pre-existing conditio...

Re: Average salaries in Singapore

This place you mean? https://www.glassdoor.com/Salary/A-Star-Salaries-E254781.htm?sort.sortType=BP&sort.ascending=false Salary seems to top out at around 100k per year. Range from 80k-100k sounds about right. I doubt they'll pay anything for accommodation. You might get a pension equivalent in lieu ...

Re: Average salaries in Singapore

Hello, I'm new to Singapore and new to this forum. It's a nice city. A little warm but I'll get used to it. My dad got a job here and my family relocated from Canberra. School is starting next Feb for me. In the meantime, I'm thinking of working part time and getting to know the culture here a litt...

Re: Arrested in Singapore for swearing at police officers

Time to give up the booze mate. I gave it up when I was told it will definitely give me stomach cancer if I keep drinking and I've got a lot of other friends who've also stopped drinking. All my stupid mistakes have been when I was drunk. I would like to see bars and such forced to stop serving int...

Re: Looking for jobs in Singapore from UK

You should stop emphasising your links to the UK so much. It is in your favour that you presumably speak Mandarin and understand Asian culture. I would take both of those things and start applying to jobs in Singapore. And yes you'll have more chance if you come over here to do it. Having worked ove...

Re: Average salaries in Singapore

In my experience, family cover is usually included. Doesn't make any difference to them really, each category (eg outpatient) will include your family, but will be capped at a limit each year. So you should expect family to be covered, but make sure the caps are sensible. Maternity is a very good po...

Re: Average salaries in Singapore

Your expectations sound about right. Medical coverage is very standard here, so don't let them tell you that it's a special benefit. Do look at the coverage though, many company insurance policies here are pretty poor in terms of limits on outpatient expenses for example, which will rack up with a b...
