Moving to singapore

Postby Sherif Saeed » Thu, 27 Jul 2017 5:50 pm

Hello everyone

Am willing to move to singapore this year

I am a fresh graduate ( Accountant )

From egypt so i guess that i can enter via tourist visa

I have a singaporian friend who is willing to help me


The question is who can i get a residency in singapore

Because i don't think it will be easy to find a job on my field as soon as i reach there

So can i get a residency from working in gas station or something like that as a beginning till i settle down ??

Need your help guys

Very unlikely for a fresher to secure a job in SG that will get him a Employment Pass or S Pass.

Working visa = employment pass ?

So working in a gas station or in a bakery will not afford me a residency ??

Thanks for your interest


And is there any other way to be able to stay legally in this country ?

Who is going to give you the job in a gas station? Not as easy as you think.

Based on whatever you said there is no other way to live in SG for a start without a work visa.

Certain jobs are reserved for certain nationals..

Definitely Egyptian can't pump gas or bake.

Unless qualify as chef level, and earn good pay, being eligible for Residency also Is NO.

Sad to say so
