Re: Subletting a room out

Hi all, I've tried searching this forum for an answer but couldn't seem to find it. My question is if I rent the whole private condo unit, can I then sublet one of its rooms out? Is this illegal? I'm an EP holder. Most likely your tenancy agreement with the landlord will prevent you from sub-lettin...

Re: Advice on Cloud and Banking Jobs in Singapore

I've been out of the Singapore IT game for 5 years now, and, I can tell you that my last three projects were the outsourcing/off shoring of IT personnel for large multi-national banks and manufacturing companies. I judge that the process has only accelerated since I left. Call centers all left Singa...

Re: Short Term Work/Permits needed?

Because the company hasnt applied for the visa and it does take a fairly long time to get the visa I think conscious that they might not get the EP before the 30days is up (so wanted to know options for it). If you are coming from EU, UK, US, AU, etc, have good credentials, coming in to work for a ...

Re: Electronics In singapore

Consider: They are all made in China, anyway. It's the same brands you find elsewhere. The rents in Singapore are very high, leading to high prices for electronics as well. Unless there is something you just can't find it Oz, I wouldn't call Singapore a destination for electronics shopping.

As an EP you can sponsor parents on a LTVP but you as the passholder must earn at least $12,000 per month. You cannot combine incomes to meet the $12,000 requirement.

Re: Short Term Work/Permits needed?

Hi All! My question is can you come into Singapore on a visitor pass and then be issued a EP/SP? Do you need to buy an out bound journey or is the one way ticket fine? My friend is currently working with a company based in London, he's heading over to Singapore with his GF in July (yes a in a few w...

Re: Got an offer, EP approved but employment will not commence

Assuming there are no other issues between you, you should try to complain to MOM. It will be difficult to get any compensation or to even get your job back but if MOM receives many complaints of this kind regarding this company, the company's application for passes will be scrutinized or rejected ...

Not correct. S Pass holders can also get a DP, if their salary is at least $6000 per month.
