But I have signed the contract already and submitted. After this the employer will look for other candidate? How should I approach this ?


Contract is subject to your EP being approved. If not, the contract is not valid.

Re: NS obligations for son

He needs to be born and educated overseas with no records of the relationship in Singapore or born here and then apply for PR. Thanks all for the replies. There's a very high chance that I w...

@OP, for the details you have given, you would need to stay atleast for 5 years and show an steady increase in your salary for you to have a very slight chance for PR.

Re: Trying to conceive via IVF beyond 45 years of age

Thanks PNGMK, Singaporeflyer, However we have specific reasons for going via the IVF route and we wish to do it here in Singapore. Hence I wonder whether the Health Ministry could be approached to explain our reasons for going this way. Very unlikely that they will change their stand. It is a rule.
