There are a couple of points immigration are interested in, just like most of the banks, they want to know how you are surviving, is it legal! They are of course sceptical of story telling, without documentation to back it up.christoscy wrote:Fair enough HSBC have given me an account but no chance of a credit card,the only way to get one is to find a job here and get a work permit which i can not afford to do right now.
I am also allowed to rent a room in an HDB flat but not the whole unit.It is really difficult to beat he system in this country and suprsingly, having a good financial condition does not make you welcome in Singapore but if you have a degree of some sort they ll take you with open arms.
I also tried to explane the Offshore oil and gas Industry to the immigration officer but unfortunately he things that all the oil comes from Loyang Supply Base and platforms and such are creations of my fiction.
Nope, you don't have to declare it. It is if you are resident in Singapore over 183 days. You are not resident if you are on a tourist or social visit pass. Old oilfield hands like myself know this well.ksl wrote: There main concern is if you stay over the 183 day period in Singapore, you must declare your outside income to Acra, because you become automatically resident for tax purposes, if you do this, I think they will just let you continue, because you will be paying tax on your income, If you are earning over the required amount, outside of Singapore, they may also consider you for PR
