EP help!!!! Relocating in just 25 days

Postby petesax78 » Thu, 14 Apr 2016 6:30 pm

Hi group,

My wife and I are relocating to Singapore from Dubai in just 25 days and we're just in the process of completing my wife's Employment Pass application and we need some advice.

My wife and I are both British and neither of us have degrees we're educated to A-levels. My wife will be working for the same company she has been with for the past 14 years (8 years in Dubai) and is a senior level she holds a Diploma in the relevant form of work. We presume she will be okay with the experience and Diploma her salary will be inaccess of S$10,000 per month. However on the form it also requests my educational background which as mentioned is only UK A-levels should we add these or leave this section blank? I also have got 16 years experience in sales and currently hold a sales director role but the form does not ask for my work experience or history.

Your help and advice would be very much appreciated.

Pete

Unless you have a job offer as well you will need to apply for a dependents pass tied to your spouse's EP.

Hi there sorry maybe I wasn't clear we do understand that I will need to apply for a dependants visa as well as my son but on my wife's EP application it asks for spouses education history.

If it is asked for, you give it. Even though it may seem redundent, they have their reasons.

Agree with ^ above. It might not seem relevant now (to you). But they like to 360 who is coming in. No need to big up the 50M swimming award you got aged 8, but any sell-able quals/exp and I'd try to get that down on paper and into the process now.
Plus, if you decide to get work later it's perhaps better you've declared your quals/exp (as appropriate) at the earliest opportunity. You might not wish to work now, but it might be something of a plus for you if you demonstrate you could 'add value to the nation' if you chose to seek work later.
