LTVP and internships?

Post by alastar » Tue, 24 Nov 2020 4:08 pm

Hi all, I really hope someone has seen/ experienced something similar around these days and could help me with the question. I studied a masters' degree for the past year in Singapore and I'm currently under an LTVP for graduates of IHL.

Given current economic/sociopolitical conditions, getting a job willing to sponsor an EP is rather difficult.. but I'm still trying. I have been considering opportunities of becoming an intern in a Company in Singapore in order to gain experience and also build network that could lead to full employment, but do you think I'm allowed?

I cannot apply for a LOC or PLOC since I'm an LTVP that is not married to a Singaporean/PR. Has anyone seen something similar before? I don't want to engage in any economical activity that could endanger my permit or make the company get a fine.

Thank you !

Hello, I'm in the same situation as you now. I received internship offer, but they dont sponsor visa, until I get fulltime. Could you let me know what happened after? Can you work with LTVP?
