You mean to be a director? None that I am aware of. If you are breathing, normally resident, and haven't been a bankrupt or other naughty things, you can be a director. Being a director is "working", however, so the usual restrictions apply.

I mean to get the pass. In other words, it is enough to apply for an EP for a director position and the degree (or the salary) are not THAT critical? I though salary (or deg applies to all the EP middle range passes.

Could you please f***ing read more carefully, even slightly competently? Good Lord, the English reading comprehension here is terrible. :(

I NEVER WROTE THAT THE ORIGINAL POSTER NEEDS TO BE "ORDINARILY RESIDENT." Is that clear enough now? Somebody else does, and that's the freakin' point. Obviously, if you can read at a secondary school level.

See Spot run. Green eggs and ham. Hop on Pop.... How's that?

[..] Obviously, if you can read at a secondary school level.

I am not saying you are in this particular case right or wrong, but have you noticed how often you write the above (or similar) sentences?

With the Asignee's approval, insolvent can be director.

YOU specifically wrote:

Legally, for a company formed in Singapore, at least one "Director" of the company must be "ordinarily resident in Singapore." Part of the meaning of "ordinarily resident" is having Singaporean citizenship, Permanent Residence, or an EntrePass. You don't have any of those statuses.


So, quit with the bullshit. This is what you told the OP, and it is false. You clearly suggested that he cannot be a director with an EP. Not only are you wrong, you create unnecessary stress over his legal status.

And while you are clearly brilliant, you are a complete ass in your response here.

I am retired now but I used to work for the Ministries and one of them is the former ICA called SIR, The selection of Prship is based solely on what you submitted in PR application form. Then they will do their due diligence
Main criteria is race, religion , kinship , tax (you have to pay tax), education but not in this order .
These are the main criteria. They will tinker with it based on social and political landscape at that given time.
Quotas are set by the gahmen . Not what is in demand by any sector of any industries or lack of it
BBCW throws a big smoke screen in front of you.
Prepare all your docs and submit it to your best knowledge. The only thing I can think of is to increase your shareholder stake and prepare a a flow chart or future business plans in your submission on your intention to expand your Singapore business and hiring locals in your company as a cover note or part of your resume. These has been done before and it helps to increase your chances if the main criteria meets the requirement.
PR to Japanese applicants have been approved before mainly for big MNC directors such as Matsushita Electric Industries, Nippon Paint etc but the numbers are very small.

@Mods : i have nothing against BBCW but if he/she keeps on giving twisted and blurry replies to questions posted by posters , these arguments will not stop.
Getting infos from Mr Google only covers 30 to 40% of the answers, The rest will comes from real life experiences. The forum has enough experienced people that has been there and done that to know if someone is BSh*tting or not
I said it before and I said it again if you Mods do not keep a check on what BBCW posted, this forum will land in hot water.
The positive thinker sees the invisible, feels the intangible, and achieves the impossible.Yahoo !!!

So just be a bit careful here, to make sure ICA doesn't have any reason to believe you're the only real director.

(Emphasis added to aid those with basic English reading comprehension challenges.)

Is English your fifth or tenth language in rank order of proficiency?

No offence and PLEASE I hope you don't argue with me. Please.

If somebody asks a question, a simple reply goes a long way, than giving a long reply including impossible scenarios..

Most of the people who look for answers don't have English as their first language and it's easy to confuse anybody when a reply is comprehensive and extremely detailed enough but useless to somebody who just wanted a Yes, No, Maybe or Don't Know answer.

And long replies tend to hide the fact that you are simply theorizing and re interpreting or misinterpreting public information, than drawing on personal experience or information through personal network or sources.

I know. I am not perfect. I do tend to go off track at times.

Short also no work. No read as yes, black read as white. No can win.

It has to be short and simple. Gross people looking for answers on this forum cannot comprehend the government websites and different forms.

Remember the pretty recent topic on EP to be (allegedly) rewarded to all the tuition grant students? I think many times if people are emotionally engaged in a topic, they interpret text based on wishful thinking and some half relevant anecdotal evidence. Where you say "possible" (factually correct, but unlikely), they will read it "yes/true".

Several I've had to make concise answers to via PM this past week because of total confusion. Like I said, if at all possible, use the KISS method. If you give them enough rope, they just confuse themselves.
