I am searching for a suitable job for the past 4 months. my friends are also searching . I ve sent more than 1000 application to the employer & recruitment agencies. i passed interviews in some companies . But companies are not ready to offer EP. we spent a lot of money for studying here and not getting a job here.

Hi Va Va

Normally LPR is applied when you are not in Singapore and you dont have any job offer from a sing company as well, but your skills, education, experience and income level may be attractive enough, that immigration may consider to be a potential for local economy and society and grant an AIP LPR.

Further even you get a AIP LPR (Approcal-In-Principle, Landed PR), you still would need to fulfill condition of either getting a job in Singapore or settling with your whole family, to be granted a Full PR. (AIP LPR is not a FULL PR)

So considering above rough explanition and since you are already in Singapore and have studied here too, so best way would be to apply for job and get some sponsorship and get EP, and after a while you may apply for full PR.

I hope I didnt sound like a teacher teaching a kid. :))))))))))))

I wish you all the best.

Hi Sam

Precisely would be difficult to name the companies who want to hire foreigners. Obviously MNCs in Singapore may be the ones to approach, however my personal experience suggest that chances are not bright.

But I think if you have the right ingredients for a certain job, companies would be interested to talk to you, but keep in mind that sponsorship for EP would not be easy to get, as only copmpanies who have the capibilities to prove their standings as a potential employer (interms of their successful operations and business) can hire people from outside and sponsor a EP, as otherwise immigration would not approve. So you can imagine not every other company can do so, that is why companies dont tend to go for EPs.

Frankly speaking if you have good education, experience, skills and good income level, would be better you apply for AIP LPR (if you are at present outside of Singapore).

Once you get AIP LPR, you would have better chances of getting a good job, since that makes you eligible to stay, find job, show the approval letter to potential employers (approval letter also advise you to show the letter to your potential employers for getting the job) and obviously get a good job.

hope above helps.

Good luck

hi expat ,

some poeple are saying that landed PR is only for HKs . so i am really confused about that. i am currently under student pass here. so i cant aplly for LPR , na?


I heard that companies has to incur lots of expenses like deposit , insurance etc . to hire a foreigner or a student pass holder. Anyone please give me some informations about that?

If the foreigner is willing to pay these expenses , can a company give EP to an expat? or they can cut that from monthly salry , na?

I am just asking about the possibilies

please respond

Well yes AIP LPR is for HK, however you may have read the thread on this forum from Eric of Netherlands. He got AIP LPR too, so I dont think should be any bar on that for you too.

As for as possibilities you have mentioned, well ........ employers going that far to sponsor anybody EP, I dont think it is practical. Sounds like monkey business (please dont take in any other sense). I may be wrong though.

May be you are not focussing on specific set of employment opportunities and doing window shopping all over (may be).

As you have studied here, you will surely get a job.

Take my words seriously na :)))))

Eric from the Netherlands got his PR because he has a Singaporean wife. If you've got one, too, then you're in. If not, you ought to read the immigration website to get the facts, instead of opinions.

http://app.ica.gov.sg/serv_pr/per_res/app_for_pr.asp

You'll find that the following can apply

Spouse/Child of a SC/SPR
Aged Parent of a SC
P, Q or S Work Pass Holder - with successful, stable record
Investor/Entrepreneur
Financial Investor Scheme
Persons born in Hong Kong or who can show proof that they have or used to have rights of abode in Hong Kong

So, if you're not one of those, you can forget about applying for PR.

As for EP, companies don't "give" EP's, the Singaporean government controls immigration. Comapnies must submit documents to MoM to gain approval for an EP as to why they can't find local talent. They must maintain the correct ratio of EP's to locals. Companies would like to hire foreign workers. They can't because of immigration controls. So, companies will only apply for an EP for a person when they cannot find the skills here.

Yes you may check with immigration to realy understand. Also one more source to get info on AIP LPR is following website link

http://www.smcmc.com/immigration/immigration.html

That may provide you some help in understanding your situation too.

Good luck

Hi Eagle,

I visited the ICA website and found some information regarding AIP LPR.

http://www.ica.gov.sg/page.aspx?pageid= ... ligibility

It does not mention any specific eligibility for HK citizens. Rather it mentions the following, as I quote:

"Foreigners residing outside Singapore who are interested to study, work and live in Singapore may apply for in-principle approval for permanent residence by submitting an application through SMC Management Consultants Pte Ltd in Singapore provided they satisfy certain guidelines."

Please notice the last two words in the quotation; "certain guidelines".

Seems, the guidelines vary from person to person and are completely subject to ICA's discretion.

So, "in principle", AIP-LPR is open to all. No? :)

Guess it's obvious you didn't read this thread as closely as you read the SMC site did you? The post you are referring to is already over three years old. :roll:

In the period between 1997 and 2005 it was primarily used by Hong Kongers after the return of HK to PRC. The other big user of this has been the Indonesian Chinese. While it's open to all, you have to actually look at the posts before you make yourself look rather silly.
