I am REDUNDANT from 31 December. How do I STAY IN SINGAPORE longer than 30 days after EP expiry, for JOB SEARCH.

Good luck smiler!

Sometimes you never know. Like in my case, when I arrived here in 1996, they only gave 30 days for tourism. My gf at the time sponsored extensions (as required at that time). At first they only gave me a 2 week extension, we immediately appealed and asked for 30 days instead, which they approved after a brief interview. After that, we requested another extension and got another 30 days (it was supposed to be a maximum of 90 days). After that, we just tried again and surprisingly got another 30 days. Shortly after, I got some job offers and started EP processing, and there’s no problem extending your stay once you’ve got an EP application submitted.

4. Today i have gone back to doctor at NUH treating my pre-existing medical condition. I have an appointment letter for February and a note from doctor requiring me to attend and continue treatment. I can try this openly and honestly with ICA as grounds to extend STVP. If they say no, i will comply, like it or not. Its the appropriate way IMO.
That doctor's letter might not work .We do get a lot of requests from foreign patients asking for memos to ICA.If it's a run of the mill appointment , it's not likely to get a second look unfortunately.

Medical exemptions are one of the few categories that are allowed for STVP passes. You might get it in.
