Re: Employment pass processing time

Not normally. They do this for a reason. In the near past, there have been several ethnic groups who have taken that information and then tried to tailor make their resumes to avoid the negatives but eventually get caught anyway, thereby giving whole races here a bad name due to a few bad apples.

Re: Singapore PR Approval chances in the year 2017-2018

fh12, when one has been on this site and in the region for a fair number of years, we collect a fair amount of data and also are able to spot trends, for better or worse. Nobody knows what exactly the MOM or ICA uses as a guideline, but we do know from our interactions with folks on here and people ...

Re: Be SmArT: Use the Self Assessment Tool

MGEORGE, You are not entirely correct. Maybe you should stick with non-Malaysians. Malaysians with degrees can get an EP (not S pass) with a $2400/mo salary. I know. I just hired two Entomologist BSc freshers from the University of Malaysia. One, three months ago, and the other one last month. Oh, d...

Re: LTVP for my son

Has your husband adopted the boy yet? If not, there 'may' be some issues. Possibly will need your husband's employer to stand as surety for the boy. But I don't know if it is always the case.

Re: PR Surrendering and CPF Withdrawl

CPF is not taxable. Give up your PR and you can have it sent to any bank in the world via electronic transfer, takes around 3 weeks I believe. It is NOT taxable by IRAS. However, if you withdraw your CPF you will not be able to return to Singapore and Take up PR in the future unless you return ALL t...

Re: PLease help evaluate my chance In getting PR

Thanks SF. I'm on hols at the moment and sitting under the live oaks in Tampa FL on R&R for a couple of weeks so only periodically look in as I need a break for the numbskulls who don't like to have a spade called a spade. ;-) I think coldthing is having burnout.

Re: Can I be exempted from NS?

You would be surprised what two years of 'feeble' military training will teach you. First of all, it will make a man out of a little boy. Secondly, you would be surprised at what you will be capable of doing. I enlisted at the age of 17. On my 18th birthday, I earned my Warrant Officer bars and pilo...

Re: Can I be exempted from NS?

If your mother was a Singapore Citizen and your Birth Cert says you are a SG Citizen at birth then there is absolutely no way you will be able to be exempted from NS. Additionally, you cannot renounce your citizenship in Singapore until you have done NS by law. If you gain citizenship in another cou...

Re: PR Chances Indian Couple with a son

So, if I read you correctly then, the money being offered here wasn't a draw for him at all. Apply. If rejected (as almost all seem to be on the first application) then reapply in two more years. Maybe you will get lucky. As was noted earlier, High flyers (250~300K/pa up) tend to be looked at sidewa...

Re: EPR Approved 7 Months Pending

How are we going to be able to help? We didn't fill out the form nor know what you put on the form. Obviously, you have done something wrong or have an uncrossed 't' or an undotted 'i' somewhere on the form. Did you go back through and look at the form? Sometimes it will be highlighted where the err...

Quick question. What prompted your husband to take a position here in Singapore initially?
