Employment Pass Advice

Postby Munkee » Fri, 27 Jan 2006 12:05 pm

Hi All,

I am hoping that somebody could advise me on my eligibility to apply for an emploment pass in Singapore. Here is my situation:

I am currently employed in a MNC in Australia. I am contemplating working from my company's office in Singapore. For all intents and purposes I would still be employed in Australia, getting paid from Australia, etc. I would simply be seated in Singapore. Call it a change in scenery if you will. I would be travelling o/seas at least once a month so I don't believe I would need any special visa to stay in Singapore since I would never be in Singapore for too long at any one time. My company in Australia is fine with this. The benefit to me is that I can return to Australia at any time without having to change work, etc, etc.

My question is - would I be eligible to apply for any of the employment pass categories in Singapore? I understand that I probably wouldn't need an employment pass but I would like one as I would be interested in obtaining PR status if I like it there.

Any inputs would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Best Regards,

Your company should be the ones sorting out the paperwork for you to work here.

The govt is quite strict on the paperwork needed to work in this country.

Absolutely no working allowed if you're on a 30 day social visit pass.

Hope that helps.
