EP applications from overseas

Post by JVW1985 » Wed, 07 Jul 2021 5:54 pm

Hi all,

I’m hoping to relocate to SG with my employer, large MNC.

I understand it’s tough to get an EP post covid, but have since heard it’s even harder at the moment.

Does anyone have insight into the current situation with MOM granting EP? Just keen to understand what’s going on at the moment.

If it helps;
I expect my salary would be $13k+ per month
I was born in Singapore (I am half Malaysian chinese) but I am a NZ citizen - green lane country
I have family living in Singapore, they will be PR but potentially also citizens

Thanks in advance

You had me at large MNC and 5 figure salary, the rest matters naught for EP purposes.

Malaysian Chinese for EP only matters at a 4 figure salary level, and I doubt you’d get partial credit for being half, you’d just be another Kiwi in their eyes.

That all assumes you’ve never had PR or SC or enjoyed any social benefits of living in SG and haven’t defaulted on any NS obligations. That could of course change the equation entirely.
