Visa - Work permit - Internship in Singapore really URGENT tks

Post by Letifel » Thu, 21 Jul 2005 2:01 am

Hi everyone ! :D

If anybody can help me ???
I'm a french student who will arrive in Singapore next week ... I've found an internship over there and would have few questions ...

Can I come with a tourist VISA and then change for a work permit other there ? or do I have to wait for the Approval Letter that my company will send to me ?

I'm actually trying to fill it up the application form for my work permit and I don't really understand how works the education system over there... I don't know what is the equivalent of my diploma in singapore ... So if there is someone who can help me with that ???

Do I have to provide any copy of my certificates ??? I mean diploma ??? Original one ? or a photocopy is ok ???

I have to be in Singapore before august so i'm quite in a rush ....

Thank you very much everybody ! ... and see u in Singapore !

whatever degrees you have are your diplomas. Just write down your degree - Bachelors in Business, Bachelors in Art, etc.

when you arrive at the Changi Airport, you will be given 30 days of Social Visit pass. During this period, you can try your best to seek a job here in Singapore.

For work permit application, you need an employer to support it. As you are French, you can apply for the Employment pass application only.

Yes, you need a both original and copy of your diploma. Pls note that you need to translate your Diploma to English language if it is not in English and Official translation of the documents is required. You can check out with the FCCS (French Chamber of Commerce Singapore) for assistance. They charged you about S$31.50 for 1 certificate.

Hope it helps...
