Query on S Pass and DP, Joint Income for DP eligibilty

Postby Rallyart28 » Sat, 31 May 2014 2:28 pm

HI all, need your advice. I m working in Singapore on S Pass however my Salary is below $4000.00 to bring in my wife & daughter (4yrs) here in Singapore on DP.

My query: If my wife gets a job in Singapore too, say, on S Pass. Then is it possible that we can bring our daughter to Singapore with us to stay? will be she eligible for DP as my wife's and my monthly income would be greater than $4k (joint income).

P.S. I would love to settle in singapore. I do understand Singapore is v expensive place to stay.

Appreciate your reply/suggestion/feedback.

Only if one of you is earning a minimum of 4K. Think about it. There is no guarantee that both of you will continue to have a job, given the current climate and reductions of S pass quotas. I have 10 staff who will be leaving in July as we are that many over quota after the last reduction for Service Sector levies. So, you can see why combined incomes will not be allowed.

you may be able to try and bring her over to start primary 1... or perhaps a private CCC/kindergarten if you can secure a place and a student pass for her before then.

how long have you been here? you may want to settle in singapore now. but as the costs mount with the increased mouths and you don't make enough money to comfortably take care of your family's needs and also save... you may change your mind. a single guy can live alone more simply and cheaply than a family unit.

that one person making $4,000 means they can bring their family over on DP but a couple making >$4,000 combined cannot even bring one child over sure seems a little odd...

i don't have anything to add, so... good luck!
