ex-SC spouse, coming back home.

Postby Effyz » Sun, 28 Jan 2018 12:10 am

Hey guys,

So my spouse was an ex-SC. Moved to Australia when she was younger with her family and then got Aus Citizenship and renounced her SC because she was above 21. Because I am bonded in Singapore for another few years and we plan to live in Singapore permanently, she wants to come back home. She is a graduate nurse, with a degree from Australia but has only had 6-12 months experience at the moment. She can speak Malay and understand local dialects. Do you think she will have trouble trying to find employment back in Singapore as a Registered Nurse?

Thanks everyone!

Employment won't the issue, getting a permit might be. Hard to say. No NS issue but maybe a CPF issue.

I think you have me mistaken. She has never been SNB registered. She’s registered in Australia and has work experience in Australian healthcare system. I am enquiring about the chances of her securing a position as an RN in Singapore, so that she may be able to get SNB registered. She is currently still in Australia, working.

She should talk to SNB first. No point coming back if she can never get registration. Secondly the points about getting an actual EP remain valid.
