Re: Keep EP or Apply for PMLA+LTVP?

I concur with MOCHS. Frankly, stay on your EP until such time as it is prudent to apply for PR (2 years after your marriage). Only give up the EP if/when the PR is approved.

Re: Question around first time EP application - and DP/LTVP also

The EP will take precedence. Not to worry on that count. If LTVP already approved, EP will automatically cancel the LTVP. Not to worry on that count either. Entry approval is already approved. EPs are not issued until after arrival in Sg. Prior to that all that would be had is the IPA (In Principle ...

Re: Who has a will here?

Depending on how simple your financials are here, you can possibly get by with the LPA. To me it's potentially more important than a will. (My point of view only)

Re: How to pick movers ?

abbby, were your 'leather' bedframes PU leather or real leather??? I wouldn't think cling wraps would peel real leather from itself. But yeah, it will peel PU leather off it's material backing.

Re: Noisy koel birds disturbing my sleep

I've lived with them for the past 38 years, first in Seletar Camp and now in my HDB Flat which fronts a park (perfect place for them). I don't even hear them anymore and I don't use Aircon so my window are always open unless it raining from both sides at once. To me they are just "white" noise. And ...

Re: Information on Singapore Income Tax

yes, EP holders not require to contribute CPF. Once upon a time in the past, EP holders WERE required to contribute to CPF. This was back before 1995. On 1 Aug 1995, New Employment Pass holders were no longer required to pay into CPF. For existing employees on Employment Passes, they would continue...

Re: PR Approval Probability 2021

You are correct in your assumption on #2....IF your spouse was already a PR or better yet an SGC. As far a applying again on you own, doubtful any success if application is before Oct 2022. And a lot can happen between now and then. If you jump the gun, you stand the chance of having to start the wa...

Re: Home-based business as an EP holder

EP holders are not allowed to operate any other business other than the company sponsoring the EP. You have to pass that hurdle before even thinking about anything else. Good way to get your EP cancelled and "Adiós" and "Vaya con Dios".

A DBS salary account is your account. if there is zero balance in a month or two once the money has dried up and cannot pay the $2 or $4 monthly fee, DBS will close the account anyway. Banking, aside from the government requiring salaries to be paid into bank accounts, is still a personal matter. Th...

Re: PR Application - Need help to pick right occupation for my role

And this is exactly why most HR managers don't even want to see cover letters and why you can no longer upload them with the application. Nothing but a BS story 99.99% of the time. [-X
