Re: Awaiting working pass

X9200, is it instantly illegal, from the date Ongvoon's previous work permit/pass ended? Or does Ongvoon have some number of days, starting from the date his previous work pass/permit expired? I cannot find firm, official guidance from HDB, but I believe it to be the latter. Also, does Ongvoon have ...

Re: PR chances for Japanese

Simple English summary of my recommendations, with JunJun1993's reply:

1. Always tell truth to ICA.
2. ACRA Web sites no match. MoM has rules. Add word to "Director" if truth. No hurt, may help.
3. Letter of Consent good, no worry.

Re: PR chances for Japanese

Checking, the other person's existence, and the LoC are all excellent. Keep digging your hole deeper, you fool. OK, your post evidently means you disagree with the post you quoted. Please tell us how, specifically. Do you recommend that JunJun1993: (a) Not check with the corporate secretary? or (b)...

Re: PR chances for Japanese

Legally, for a company formed in Singapore, at least one "Director" of the company must be "ordinarily resident in Singapore...." So just be a bit careful here, to make sure ICA doesn't have any reason to believe you're the only real director. (Emphasis added to aid those with basic English reading...

Re: PR chances for Japanese

Could you please f***ing read more carefully , even slightly competently? Good Lord, the English reading comprehension here is terrible. :( I NEVER WROTE THAT THE ORIGINAL POSTER NEEDS TO BE "ORDINARILY RESIDENT." Is that clear enough now? Somebody else does, and that's the freakin' point. Obviously...

Re: SC application approved

The fact is that the resident unemployment rate has edged up recently. The government is acting accordingly. It is what it is. Sorry if that upsets you.

Who knows, but for what it's worth I think ICA might be interested in JunJunさん.

Re: SC application approved

Is there any business owner who has ever complained that their costs are too low? ;) The government has heard all these complaints and...the quota cap is still 40%, down from 50%. "Tough. Deal with it." (They say with a smile.) Try paying better than decent salaries, providing more benefits, treatin...

Re: SC application approved

Maybe you should get out more. Talk to some people who do recruitment as to how hard it is to find people to work in the F&B food service sector. I was a recruiter for 10 years. I still have a huge number of contacts with those in the industry. We're talking past each other, SMS. It's hard to get S...

Re: PR chances for Japanese

I'm also quite interested to hear your results. I have a couple recommendations, though. Profession: Director at trading auto parts business [....] Before I got EP, I had been worked with DP under my dad' EP. I think I understand what you meant, but I recommend being a little more careful to communi...

Re: SC application approved

I'm just disagreeing with the idea that there's a Food and Beverage industry stigma among Singaporeans starting or progressing through their careers. If there is a stigma it's lack of financial success, generally. I don't see any F&B sector-specific stigma nowadays.

Re: Getting a new passport before issuance of Employment Pass

But mostly, it was faster and cheaper than getting a new passport... while you wait at the embassy... 24 more pages... I forget how much but much less than a new passport. Before July 13, 2010, U.S. embassies and consulates would add pages to a U.S. passport free of charge. You could add one or two...
