National visa of a different country while having Singapore DP

Post by globalcitizensingpo » Mon, 11 Jul 2022 6:21 pm

Hi,

My husband is relocating to Singapore on EP and I got a DP. I am about to get a great offer from a country in Europe.

Is it possible to have a work/type D visa from Europe while holding a DP pass. ?

Yes.

You've been arrested? Law Society of Singapore can provide referrals.
You want an International School job? School website or http://www.ISS.edu
Your rugrat needs a School? Avoid for profit schools
You need Tax advice? Ask a CPA

Nice one. Just about the time we think we've see it all, a different one pops up like playing whack-a-mole. Just kidding. But I don't think we've actually seen one like this before.

From a distance it would seem that is should be possible as Singapore doesn't prevent working for an offshore employer nor does it tax offshore earnings. As you are accompanying you partner who is your sponsor on his EP (which I assume he will be retaining if he is being sent over by his current employer (again, assuming this is of a temporary nature?) Therefore, in theory, your DP would also remain intact as long as his EP remains valid as the DP is tagged to the EP).

SF any thoughts here?
