Yep, come back and serve your jail sentence (as a deserter as you still have Singaporean Citizenship) and do your NS. Then and only then will they even talk to you. You can apply but you will get a letter asking you to clear up your issues with Mindef first before granting you an work pass. Actually, if you are still a Singapore Citizen you cannot get a work pass and you cannot renounce until you have done your NS. I'd say you are well and truly screwed, truth be known. Do a search on the Strictly Speaking subforum under the General Forum here for NS issues for a fully story. (read the long "stickie" thread first).

i think you should buy yourself a ticket to Singapore first and let us know how it goes.
To get there early is on time and showing up on time is late

codygame, thanks for that, but frankly, most don't appreciate my "in your face" answers which generally leave little room for pleasantries. I try to give people the straight bare facts without all the little homilies to make it PC. I don't believe in PC. Most old farmboys don't! But I can go over the top as well on occasion. :-(

there have been multiple cases like yours, i wasn't trying to be rude or anything and you aren't the first or won't be the last, take your time and read through that sticky thread SMS pointed to.
after that like many others do, come back and try to delete their posts.
