Re: Multiple applications for Employment Pass

( if you are skilled and have a good network.) As an HR manager, your type are very hard to find here. Most, (the vast majority) end up being lateral moves for the same money or in some cases even less with a 'promise' of better wages after probation. Most shoot themselves in the foot by getting sca...

Re: Multiple applications for Employment Pass

Again, yes you can certainly do that. The prohibition is only with outstanding IPAs, not having an EP. In fact, you should never go job hunting without already having a valid EP, else you may run out of time on the SVP while you are unemployed. It's fine, but again, you are inadvertently telling the...

Re: Is there a best time to apply for renewal of REP?

Hey PNGMK, it's been 10 years already? Crap, I better go have a look at mine as I remember the two of use were some of the last to get the old 10 year REPs. I'm planning on making a FL run in November. Thanks for the heads up. Wouldn't that have been a pisser to get to the airport and find that out!...

Re: Multiple applications for Employment Pass

Technically you can have all the applications you want until an IPA is issued. Once that is issued, you are stuck with it unless you can convince the employer to withdraw the application (this is the hard part). If the employer wants to be nasty he can just sit on it until it expires (6 months I bel...

Re: First Job | LOC>PR or EP>PR

Makes no real difference, truth be told. I just had a WP holder who I converted to a LoC holder (wife is a PR here) after about 1.5 years he applied for PR and got it on the 6th of July just past. So it really doesn't matter. And if you noticed I said WP not EP or S pass. So salary isn't always a fa...

Re: Any reviews on iasg ? Immigration sg consultants

This one is as dumb as a shucked oyster. We're trying to save you a ton of money that is going to just be wasted (whether successful or not it's still wasted as the results will still be the same) and you just want to get antsy and get your panties in a bunch. Please, go spend your money. We have pl...

Re: PR Application for Spouse of SC

At the same time, you may like to register yourself for some volunteering work at local RC or CC, if it is not for this application it will be useful for the coming one. Contribute then you ll get what you want easier. You are about 7 years too late for that suggestion. It no longer helps as sub-co...

Re: Is there a best time to apply for renewal of REP?

I think I would seriously start looking at a Plan B if I were you, unless you are a gambling man who enjoying losing. It doesn't look good and you would have known this after gaining your last renewal.

Now that made absolutely zero sense at all. You are almost batting 1000 for making no sense here.

Re: EP (Employment Pass) Processing time

If the employer didn't tick the "consider an S pass if not qualified for the EP" box then you will not see an S pass either. If the EP was applied for without ticking the box, then, if rejected, the employer cannot go and apply for an S pass. So it might behoove you to check with the emplo...
