Job hunting while on SVP

Postby ribenzo » Tue, 15 May 2018 10:44 pm

Hello,

Simple question but I cannot find a clear answer to it. Is it OK from ICA point of view to be job hunting (tech related jobs) in Singapore while on short term SVP? Is there a risk to be refused entry if you mention job hunting to the immigration officer when entering Singapore?

Thanks

You can look all you want. Get all the interviews you can. You just can't actually work. But why mention job hunting at all? Tell them you are here for pleasure and to see the sights. You are, you know, with a bit of job hunting on the side.
