Re: PEP processing time (personal employment pass)

For the record, applying for PEP is not just a formality. When PEP first came out it was to be a stepping stone for EP holders to take a tenative step to PR which also has a lot of baggage that goes along with it, like NS for male dependents. It was rather abused as it was originally for 5 years an...

Re: How the hell do you upload cover letter, testimonials et all in ePR?

I wonder why ICA does not crack down on these bogus PR agencies.

Its ok to provide form-filling services & advertise that.. but blatantly lying that their cover letters and shit will improve PR chances is surely BS that ICA can call out and put a stop to ? no ?

Re: How the hell do you upload cover letter, testimonials et all in ePR?

short answer - Cannot. long answer - I applied recently, the e-PR form has no provision to upload docs that they haven't asked for, i.e. cover letters, reco letters, volunteering proofs etc. If you try to send these to ICA via email, they will ask you not to bother them with all this unwanted stuff....

Re: PR approval chance in 2020

i applied for PR recently so can confirm that uploading volunteering evidence is not possible on the e PR site, there simply is not an option to submit anything 'additional' apart from what they have asked for. Soon after submitting my PR app, i had some profile/ salary changes so I emailed ICA with...

Re: Lack of activity gives you more zits?

I've been getting a lot of them lately which is unusual, so maybe you are right.

Unfortunately i can't resist popping / scratching / squishing them so have ended up dalmatian-faced.

Re: PR approval chance in 2020

Hi all, I want to ask if the online system allows us to upload any recommendation letters now? No. can not upload as they don't ask for it in the application. And if you try emailing it to ICA later, they may come back with a curt response asking you to stick to only the docs they have asked for. S...

Re: Struggling to find a new home

Think the problem is the budget. If you stretch out more the choices should be better and more. And with this budget it would be rather impossible to get a whole house. The OP has said they are looking for a room, not a house . And in the areas mentioned, it is very much possible to get a room in a...

Re: My bloody experience applying PR with a bloody agency (being rejected already)

thank you very much singaporeflyer.

on a completely separate topic, wonder if the singapore flyer is actually going to resume operations next month. probably not going to make much money in the current scenario even if they do open.

Re: My bloody experience applying PR with a bloody agency (being rejected already)

The E-PR checklist does not specify any covering letter .. so can someone confirm it is needed, and is there provision to be able to upload it ?

Re: Which areas to live with lots of activities for babies and toddlers?

All residential areas in Singapore have something going on for babies & kids - there are classes/playgroups at all malls & community centers.
Therefore better to choose your residence based on other factors such as work location / time to commute / proximity to MRT / expat favored area etc etc..

Re: One guy dodging , one guy critically injured!

Was thinking the same, that it's quite bad publicity for NS that a celebrity-of-sorts is in ICU due to reservist. But in a country where (a) population is limited, and (b) majority culture places emphasis on $$, prosperity, consumerism etc, I imagine there will be very few takers for full-time army ...

Re: Document needed to secure when bringing newborn to singapore

You may apply for a multiple-entry tourist visa for your baby and use it to enter SG, however i would really not recommend it as you would need to exit SG in 30days & re-enter - it is a hassle with a newborn. And what if your DP gets rejected meanwhile ? You won't be able to do visa runs with the ne...
