Re: PR Status - Pending <More than 1 Year>

There's a lot more caution around who they pick for PR after the blowback in the last two GE. PR's once were appreciated by most Sinkies but now just seen as a nuisance unless you realize you came in during the early years (pre 2000).

Re: Unwed SG Father, foreigner Mum & Baby

Persons who are born outside of Singapore and have at least one parent who is a Singapore citizen may register with a Singapore consulate within a year to acquire Singapore citizenship by descent - (however you may find they insist on proof of marriage at the time of birth)

Re: Population in Brief 2018

No Japan is a nightmare although if they would drop their hatred of none Japanese it could become a premier immigration destination and attract the brightest/best/richest as it's a beautiful country.

Re: Population in Brief 2018

Lastest direct from SingStats: https://www.singstat.gov.sg/publications/population-trends PR level stays the same but if you look at number of SC it has grown more than the birth date.

Re: Unwed SG Father, foreigner Mum & Baby

You need to return to Singapore and find a salaried job with a good income (~3K min). Then: 1. Ask MOM for permission to marry. It should be approved IMO if you have a job. 2. Marry and then apply for amended birth cert in Taiwan. 3. Then apply for LTVP for mother/child. It should be approved IMO. C...

Re: Relocating with an EP while waiting for wife's DP

I'm not exactly full of sympathy. Although Singapore and Indonesia were very close pre WWII there has been a dedicated effort to split them by both govts.

Re: Need some advice

The film and video industry is saturated with newcomers and laggards and the pay is always crap for 99% of folk in it. Add on that influencers who work for free and you're in a market that will never get better.

Until Indonesia apologises for and makes full reparations to Singapore for the MacDonald House bombing (and a few other incidents including naming their warships after the very bombers!) then Indonesian's will always have a risk of visa denial. That's what happens wh...
