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...

Re: Renew EP or apply new EP

You're going down a treacherous road if the solution for company A is to hire you through a body shop. Unless this is a job just to good to be true, the risks of you having no EP seem too large to warrant not waiting for your existing EP to be renewed, then going after another job. Two strikes again...

Re: Renouncing PR - Documents to submit

One thing is for sure. If you don't send them and they want them, they will ask for them. The worst that happens is that you create a delay in your PR processing if the LTVP's matter. My guess is that since they are expired, they don't matter... they can't be used.

Re: Canada PR

If I were to make the move, I'd look at Calgary Alberta, the oil capital of Canada, and with a population of 1.2 million, the third largest city in the country. In addition to oil, I think they have a fairly robust financial services industry. Housing used to be hellishly expensive in Calgary becaus...

Re: PLEASE HELP I need visa information

If you are transiting, you do not present yourself to Singapore immigration. You stay within the controlled part of the airport. That includes the airport hotel, of which there are a couple... they can only be accessed from within the airport. You do not need, and will not get, a visa just to hang a...

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

The first thing you will need (and the biggest hurdle) is a legal entity (sole proprietorship or private limited) and a work permit (LOC or EP) for you to be legally able to work in Singapore. On a DP, you cannot simply start up a business of any kind. If you are selling foods, there are a myriad of...

Re: Random drug testing at Singapore airport

Why but. Why are chances zero. I’m trying to work out how many times they do random testing. There is not much on the news about it Because the don't DO random drug testing. Years ago, there were a couple of possible exceptions. For example, you were a citizen, PR, or maybe EP/DP, you flew in from ...

Re: Renouncing PR - Documents to submit

I sent back my drivers license along with NRIC. I probably didn't need to send drivers license as they kept it. Would have made a nice souvenir. The only thing that matters is your NRIC card. They asked for copies of past documents as I recall but if you didn't have them it wouldn't make a difference.
