Li Nah,
I'm pretty sure you're from Walton. While Walton isn't an MLM company, it is a company that uses a direct selling strategy that consists of multiple tiers of commissions depending on what statuis/level you are on, you will have a certain amount of leverage over your team. I have no issues with it. I think Walton is a brilliant company with a brilliant product. I've got friends who are Divisional Managers there and have bought products myself.

MLM = multi level marketing. It is a scheme whereby you bring in new recruits below you, often collecting a commission for doing so, and then you collect a percentage of their sales as commissions. Most MLM's are ripoffs and illegal in Singapore.

EP = Employment Pass. To live and work in Singapore on a permanent basis you must have a work permit, employment pass, or permanent residence. In this thread, the OP could not just live here... he must get a pass... and an MLM company such as Li Nah has advertised cannot provide that for him.

Thank you

I hope that you've actually participated in MLM before to understand it's inner workings and thus understanding it fully. Otherwise, your last post, and all your other posts on MLM are merely opinion and as a moderator, you should know that it should be stated as opinion. Your use of emotive language and rhetoric is strong but unless you have actually experienced it for yourself, you cannot speak of it as fact. Even then, one company cannot represent the vast majority. You wouldn't want to be a bigot would you?

Blandine,

You problem is this. Employment passes are granted by the Mininstry of Manpower only when a company can demonstrate that they cannot find the necessary skills in the local labor force. Thus, if you have particularly valuable skills or experience you can probably get a pass.

The companies that hire are the ones that must apply for the pass. It takes time and effort to do this, and most companys will try to hire locally first to fill junior level needs.

While here in Singapore on a visitor's pass, you cannot open a bank account or rent property. Your visitors pass is good for 30 days, and you can renew it a few times by leaving the country and coming back. You cannot work on this pass... at least not legally... you would need to be paid in cash since you cannot open an account.

People have done this sort of thing. It's not easy and it helps if you have friends here who can help you along.

I don't know what companies offer in Singapore, but what is sure is that I don't want to take the risk to be in an illegal position
