Re: Is This Legal? Quick Query

No laws broken if you do it right, many laws broken if you do it wrong. Essentials: a) Form a legal entity for your tuition business, apply and receive permission to live and work in Singapore running that business. b) Conform to all of the regulations promulgated by the Ministry of Education for of...

Re: LOI Annex not executed, affecting move in conditions

The LOI is a useless, meaningless document. The only thing that matters is the TA. Your only recourse is to threaten with SCT, and then do it if LL refuses to cooperate. If the LL has signed an LOI, then it may help your SCT case.

Re: Newbie here, would Singapore be a good relocation choice for me?

I think you're misreading the market for "software engineers", whatever that is. The culture isn't the issue, unless you're being an assholian, bull in the china shop American when it comes to integrating with your fellow workers. Code jockeys with attitude don't get far. No... the real pr...

I believe that for Singtel you dial 104 to get operator assisted international calls.

Re: US Expat, Medical Coverage

Most expat insurance plans that exclude USA , actually still provide upto 60 days visits to the US covered. You should carefully check the fine print about that 60 days if you are an American. May not apply, in fact, while memory fades, I do remember Americans being excluded from that coverage. Eve...

Re: I am a DP pass holder .Can i start selling Indian snacks in Singapore through Facebook?

I didn't mean any MLM kinda business. What I meant for an example; my friend who is a DP holder and he wants to do something as he is not working. Now he bakes very good and wants to sell home made cakes, cookies muffins kinda stuff and I'm his friend so can buy from him. For this does he need any ...

Re: EP pending for more than a Month

There are cases where it has taken 3 or more months to either approve or reject an EP application. It depends on your background, how quickly your past uni's respond to requests for information, in general, how easy it is to confirm your application details. It is also my theory that if you are goin...

Re: Health insurance for Mother on LTVP

Well, not to solicitation or whatsoever. But I strongly believe insurance or health related stuffs are kinda confidential? Do you want to share your health information to everyone? There is nothing confidential in sharing sources of insurance. If there are limitations to insurance because of pre-ex...

Re: Renew EP or apply new EP

Here's the deal. This so called "ratio" problem doesn't officially exist. There is no difference between a quota and a ratio when the effect is the same... the gahmen saying you have to have x local workers for every y foreign workers. EP's do not have a quota system. If Company A has a &q...
