Relocation Salary & Dependant Pass Question

Post by Castello » Sat, 23 Jun 2018 5:02 am


My wife and I are considering an offer to move to Singapore but as we are from the UK are concerned about the stories of the cost of living. We both live a comfortable life in the UK (not London) on salaries of around £45k per annum each. We are not overly extravagant but equally enjoy occasional luxuries, but manage to save a good amount too. We have no kids but it is something that may change in the next year or 2.

The offer is 12k SGD, no details of further benefits yet (if any). Do you think that this is sufficient for a similar lifestyle in Singapore? We would probably look for a 1 or 2 bed apartment around 30mins from the centre.

Is there anything in particular to look out for in a contract?

My other half (prof qualified in finance industry with 8 years experience) would come on a dependants pass. I have heard scare stories about getting a job on this pass. Do you think there would be issues finding employment?

Thanks for your help,
