Dependant pass - salary check

Post by bhandu » Sat, 09 Mar 2019 7:15 pm

Hello everyone :) I’m from Australia, been here for 2 years now. I’ll try to keep it short and crisp.
Monthly basic salary - 4900
Cpf paid by employer (in the bank account) - 833
Total monthly salary - 5733.
AWS - 2 months salary paid end of year ie 11500 approx (this is fixed and mentioned in my contract)
Bonus - 1-1.5 x monthly basic salary (variable)

Can i sponsor my wife’s dependant visa? I’m not sure if I meet the 6000 monthly fixed salary. If the cpf component in cash and aws is considered part of my fixed salary then I cross the 6000 mark else not. Please advise :-k

The only thing they will use will be the Basic Monthly Salary as stated in the contract..

https://www.mom.gov.sg/faq/salary/do-wa ... deductions
Do wage levels refer to the basic or gross rate of pay? Do they include CPF contributions and deductions?
The wage levels specified by the Commissioner for Labour refer to the basic rate of pay. This does not include CPF contributions and deductions. It also does not include payments such as allowances and overtime.
So, while I'm not going to try to tell you not to apply, don't be surprised if it's rejected.

Thanks. Is there even a chance of getting approval? And any idea how much is the cost of applying?

Like I said, you pays your money and you buys your ticket. Me? I would waste my money until I had all the t's crossed and all the i's dotted. But then that's just me.
What are the fees involved in a Singapore PR application?
Answer:
From 18 December 2017, you will be charged a processing fee of S$100 per applicant at the point of your PR application submission. If your application is successful, additional fees of S$20 for the Entry Permit and S$50 for a 5-year Re-Entry Permit are applicable. A new PR aged 15 years and above is also required to register for a Singapore Identity Card at a fee of S$50. Where applicable, S$30 per visa issued may be levied per applicant.

A friend of mine earning something around 5950 with more bonuses + cash allowances than yours got into troubles when extending her EP. Not sure how it was solved.
