Re: Citizenship rejected

Everybody is on about the child on your application. I also feel that this would pose a problem. It would have made more sense if the mother added the child to HER PR application. However, the big elephant in the middle of the room may well have more bearing on it than the child does. You are playin...

Re: What are my chances of getting a PR?

The current wisdom and has been for a number of years now, is wait until you have worked two full years or have three consecutive tax assessments - you will find this on the application form, not on the website. (doesn't mean you actually paid any taxes, but show you are employed for that length of ...

Re: EP renewal rejected, PR application pending

Possibly, without knowing the reason for the rejection, I would think your best option might be to explore returning to India as you will not be able to get PR without a job. Wouldn't make too much sense on the government's part would it. You need to inform ICA if your status changes, e.g., you have...

Re: Stay on for job search after cancellation of EP

Thanks @jdkexpat @Sundaymorningstaple Would I need to apply a tourist visa after 30 days from my country of birth or can I apply a relevant visa from here. You will need to leave Singapore and apply for a new visa from home. However, after returning to Singapore on a normal visa (not a cancellation...

Re: How to choose between LTVP and EP with SC spouse

Firstly. Generally, probably not, (and this will answer your second as well) because the LOC is tied to your marriage - so as long as that lasts you should be okay. While your spouse needs to be able to show support, it would not be a problem until you had to renew the LoC (annually) provided she wa...

Re: Ask a doctor FREE in Singapore!

Yes, but you can also go to other hospitals like Gleneagles, Mt. Elizabeth, or the Raffles Group and pay much higher fees as they are all private hospitals. But I've been here 36 years now and I use the government hospitals and have been satisfied with them (except for the sometimes crowded conditio...

Re: What are my chances of getting a PR?

50:50 Interesting, though. You did not mention gender. In your case, I'm thinking maybe 70:30 if you are a female. If you are a male, having done your schooling here may make for a disadvantage as you would be attempting to gain your PR under the PTS scheme which at a very young age, would still exe...

Congratulations. If I may ask, were you issued an EP or an S pass?

Re: Stay on for job search after cancellation of EP

In addition to the above, be advised that your work pass cancellation social visit pass of 30 days is NOT extendable and will require a trip back to your country of origin before returning. Don't think about going to Batam or JB and try to do a visa turn-around. You will then find yourself possible ...

Re: Looking for work - but why Singapore?

He didn't actually say he was looking for a position in the IT industry. It would pay you to actually read the thread rather than scanning the last post or two. You wouldn't look quite so blur that way and maybe even taken seriously at some point. Based on your posts up to this point, you are certai...

Maybe Strong Eagle will see this thread when he gets out of bed. He ran his own project management business here for around 8 years in the IT industry (region-wide) so will be able to give you even more insight (he's been back in the US for around 3 or 4 years but still moderates here as well (he's ...

Re: Looking for work - but why Singapore?

I'd give it a try, yes. Provided I had other reasons for wanting it as well. But I would definitely not come here without a Plan B or having feelers out in other countries as a backup. At your level, it could well take a while and waiting here is expensive. The other problem is that unless you actua...

Sure. IF you can convince the MOM that your skills are transferable into an absolutely different environment as opposed to hiring a local with the right industry skillsets assuming both have some years of experience. The problem here is that there has been a pogrom against foreign talent here taking...

Re: Ask a doctor FREE in Singapore!

A city scan? What would you need a hospital here for? Or, did you mean a CT (CAT) Scan? If so just go to Singapore General Hospital.
