Now i do not have my birth certificate...are there any other documents which are acceptable to MOM (like i have my parents name on my passport)?


How did you lose your birth certificate ?

From what I know you need to submit the copy of BC.

Sms. Don't EP Applications require a copy of BC ?

Usually a valid passport is sufficient for EP applications.

For LTVP applications, I don't know, but I could understand the reason why if they do. Although if parents are listed in the EP holder's Passport, I would have though that would have been sufficient (albeit, there is probably only a name and not identifying registration numbers for the parents (again, I don't know as US passports don't have parents names and neither do SG ones.)

FYI, not all of us have a birth certificate. I don't. According to my mother, the country where I was born, around the time when I was born, didn't have established system to provide a birth certificate so I don't have one.

I use my United States Naturalization Certificate in place of birth certificate, if I need one (used maybe once or twice in my life but I can't remember why).

Then again, you won't know this : quite a few Indians have more than one date of birth :P

If I was handling Indian candidates, I will ask for the official date of birth / birth certificate.

You'll need to be an EP holder with a fixed monthly salary of at least $12,000 (or outside Singapore with a fixed monthly salary of at least S$18,000) to qualify for a PEP. Ask the Ministry of Manpower if you anticipate your parent living in Singapore longer than three years (the lifetime of a PEP) and if you're concerned about what happens at the end of that period. Also please note that, whether in collaboration with an employer (EP holder) or not (PEP, PR, citizen), there is no guarantee that a LTVP will be issued to a parent. Or a STVP, for that matter.


Hi, A follow up question on eligibility for PEP. My salary structure is basic pay + pension allowance that is paid as cash in hand every month (being expat there is no other contribution). My basic is less than 12K but together with pension allowance it may just turn more than 12K next year(fingers crossed)! Do you think this makes me eligible to apply for PEP. I admit that I am not taking a long term view on here (that PEP lasts only 3 years) and that is the level of my desperation unfortunately. Thank you in advance!

Yes, probably your pension allowance would count as part of your fixed monthly salary. MOM defines "fixed monthly salary" here.

Thank you BBCWatcher. I was worried about #6 under allowance but I reckon cash in hand ought to part of fixed salary as you pointed out too, or so I hope. Thanks again for your valuable inputs.

Regards,

Ravi
