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. Thank you.. Im just counting my days now! Se...

Re: singapore employment pass race question

Sounds like your HR or outsourced recruitment firm are a bunch of amateurs. However, if the did use both terms then you should be okay as while it is incorrect to use the term Work Pass (WP) as the (WP) actually stands for the term Work Permit which is what the construction workers making sub 1000 ...

Re: singapore employment pass race question

If you are initially from the subcontinent, or Sri Lanka, you will be generally thrown into the same pigeonhole as Indian. From your other post, I am bit concerned as you did seem to know a bit about the various acronyms used here, e.g., LTVP, DP, etc. However, you indicated that your potential emp...

Re: singapore employment pass race question

singapore employment pass race question

Hi friends, I have a question regarding the specification of "race" on the EP / DP application. It asks whether you are Chinese, Indian, Caucasian etc. Does anyone know why this question is asked and what the implication of this is?
