Permanent Residency for Indonesian without Marrying Singaporean And Indonesian working in Singapore as a Fitness Trainer

Postby Tatsu » Thu, 03 Mar 2016 9:42 pm

I want to find an Indonesian person living in Singapore that was successful to get permanent residency status without marrying a Singapore Resident. I want to know if my wife can find work in Singapore if she has certification as International certification as a Fitness Trainer.



Aku mau bicara dengan orang Indonesia yang sudah berhasil menerima permanent residency status tanpa menikah dengan rakyat singapura atau permanent resident singapura.

Aku mau tau jika aku bisa cari kerjaan di Singapura jika aku ada Fitness Trainer certifikasi..

I know of a few but they are far better qualified than your wife. Mostly PHD's and seriously advanced engineers.
I have gay, black, Asian friends and then JR8.

What makes you think marrying a Singaporean resident is a sure shot way to get residency ? Doesn't work that way mate. In fact, marrying a Singaporean improves the chances but still that's not a guaranteed method.

And a lot of Indonesians get PR on their own merit, not by marrying a Singaporean resident.

And back to your question, yes, a lot of Indonesians were given PR under the LPR Scheme. But I don't know if that scheme exists.

Do some search on that.

This is true. But one must remember one thing, we don't have the answers, we only have the collective wisdom and lot's of anecdotal evidence over a period of time to try to see trends, and then give advice according. It's an inexact science at best. We do see the odd acceptance here but again, normally what we see are those with problems or lengthy waits. Those who sail through we rarely get as these types of forums only attract those seeking help/answers.

What I am saying is that is great but unless you are an exact clone of your friends, it may or may not happen for you. (exact clone means education/grades/parents/family histories/siblings, race/gender/religion and anything else) Even if you were an exact clone to someone who was successful two years ago, you may not be successful today as the government's direction may well have changed, just like the minimum salaries for S/EP passes or academic criteria being raised for S pass holders. Nothing is static.

edited. I really need to start proof reading for spelling, etc. :-(
