Re: Demand for engineering jobs?

Is there a demand for engineering jobs in Singapore? Can you specify what kind of engineering? Every type except for Nuclear. EE, ME, Chem, Civil and the sub disciplines (PE, bio etc) are all employed here. hard to say. I can speak about civil engineering. "Conventional" civil engineering such as c...

Re: PR Application but No Past Experience Letter. Advice Please!

Hi all. I hope you are all safe. I am filling the PR application form 4A right now. It has a section where I am asked to enter details of Employment record. I had some foreign work experience long time ago, around 8/9 years ago. However, I see that I have no employment certificate or experience cer...

Re: PR FOR SPOUSE. HELP NEEDED

Hi, I am a Singaporean male and I am applying for PR for my wife for the 2nd time. Since we are new to this, I would like to seek some general opinion on the chances of PR approval. We applied the first time in June 2019 but was rejected, which I kind of understand as we were married for only 2 mon...

Re: moving to singapore with 4 young kids....

Welcome! Well, not cheap raising 4 kids in Singapore. Unless the company pays for it ofcourse. Are you going to take on a job yourself? Public transport is very convenient, especially is you live between the common folks. If you opt for some high class areas (Bukit Timah, Holland, Sentosa etc) the p...

Re: Moving back overseas SC/PR

I think you can look for cases to conclude the answer. I personally cannot recall any press reports of a naturalized or registered citizen being stripped of their SC. Remember Singapore is a signatory to the UN convention on Statelessness which imposes a bit of a barrier. https://www.todayonline.co...

Re: Chances of getting PR in2020

Difficult to say. getting PR is like a ballot. I was in Singapore for only 2+ years, engineering industry, with salary much lower than yours but was granted within months. Others have their PR application pending for over a year with similar background

Re: Moving back overseas SC/PR

Hello, I am a naturalised SC and my wife is PR. Due to private reasons, we have to move back overseas for an unforeseeable time. I note that Singapore government may cancel citizenship if you as a naturalised SC stay overseas for 5 years or more (if this does not render you stateless). Is this real...

I suspect this is used as a get out clause for the gahmen... to wipe their hands of any offending person
Yeah I suspect that too, but if I am a obedient citizen, regardless where I am, I think nothing to fear right?

Re: Moving back overseas SC/PR

By low profile, I mean do not get yourself into sticky situations which gets your name or face plastered all over social media or the newswires for the wrong reasons, be it crime or hate speech.

Re: Moving back overseas SC/PR

The avenue is there for the gahmen to do it. Though I doubt they would, if you keep a low profile, not bring any attention to yourself in this day and age of social media. Unless you’ve invented a cure for any virulent diseases and credited the merlion for it. Article 129 reads (https://sso.agc.gov...
