Relocating to Singapore

Post by akilabalaji78 » Thu, 25 Aug 2005 3:05 pm

Hi Friends,

My husband has got an offer for 4000 S$ at singapore. A permanent job. He has decided to take this offer. I am planning to resign my job here back in India and join him at Singapore. I have a good salary here at India. Will relocating to Singapore be beneficial to us financially. How much can a couple save on this 4000S$ ? We do not spend too much. Can I work in Singapore on Dependent Pass and how are the job prospects for me at Singapore. I am an IT professional with mainframe experience of 5 years now.

Pls. help us decide.

Hi there,
We are in a similar situation in that we are settled down now, but will be moving to Sg just for the fun of it. However, neither my spouse nor I have found a job yet. We are not too worried about it yet.

You should take it up just for the fun and excitement. Explore new cultures, make new friends, see new places ... I bet this is not the answer you were looking for :)

If you try hard, you should be able to find a job.

Now, I read in some Sg govt publication that the median single income was $1.8K or thereabouts. The median household income was double that. So, what your husband is making is good for a start. If you have a kid-free, car-free and maid-free life, you should be able to save well.

As time goes, his career will move up, his income will rise, and you may also start having an income. So, try not to think too much about savings just yet. Go ahead and try to have fun.
