Re: Average salaries in Singapore

29 Lakh pa is around 60.7K SGD pa or around 5.1K SGD/month

SGD90K/pa is equal to roughly 42 lakh pa or 7.5K SGD/month

Not sure where the OP is getting his numbers from.

It only means none of our readers had any knowledge in that area. Nothing more, nothing less.

Re: S Pass Appeal Duration

If not the length of a piece of string, usually 3 days to 3 months. There isn't an average.

Re: PR via PTS vs Spousal Route

I have had that told to me directly by an officer at ICA while being unemployed and over 55 and my REP expired for 15 months because I didn't have a job. I was then told because I received my PR via Family Ties (even though I had an EP at the time) I wasn't required to 'have gainful employment'. PTS...

Re: Spass application rejected and now appealing

Historically, renewals will get renewed in reasonably quick order but possibly with only one year renewal giving the employer a buffer so as to not potentially loose too many borderline staff. We had that a few years ago when the S pass entry level was increased and also when the quota's were cut in...

Re: The Architect Fitness Thread

TheArchitect We have had fitness guys on here before. They all tried the same gambit of answering questions and giving helpful advice. They all tow the mark until some point in the near future until they try to start advertising/soliciting. It's at that point that they get banned. My advice to you ...

Re: LTVP agency - parent of EP holder

Stupidity comes in all shapes and sizes and nationalities. What I was told, several years ago, by the ICA officer who actually approved my PR a quarter of a century ago, is that applications from agencies and via lawyers are looked at even harder the the normal application as they reckon the applica...

Thanks

I worked on a couple FPSOs back in the late 80's in the Gulf of Thailand. But spent the vast majority of time on semi-subs & DSs. Now just an old coot or as some say the resident crusty curmudgeon. :lol:

Re: Jobs in Singapore

Hey, ....... could really use some advice as to how to proceed now. Also, what happens if I receive the EP approval from the first company and there is a go ahead for EP processing from the second company? How does MOM responds to two first time EP applications..? If you don't yet have an IPA then ...

Re: EP (Employment Pass) processing time delay

It will probably come through eventually. How long is a piece of string? That's about how long it will take. 3 days to 3 months normally. EP shouldn't be a problem especially in the O&G sector. (Upstream or Downstream?) I worked the O&G sector (exploration) for 20 years back in the 70's &...
