Application for work pass with incomplete courses

Post by melissa_newz » Thu, 21 Feb 2008 5:06 am

Hi,

I am recently living in Germany and have an offer to work in Singapore on a construction Project on a 2 year international assignment in Singapore. I have a question regarding the work permit application , the section about education as follows:
1. I have only up to a gymnasium level building engineering education from Sweden and an incompleted (one exam missing ) Engineering education without an diploma certificate. I have 13 years of international experience of working as an building engineer. I have a confirmation of the completed university courses but no diploma certificate. Should I list this education or leave it out to avoid any queries or return of my application? I will be on IA contract earning about 10000 Singapore dollar a month. How much do the Ministry of manpower check certificates

Please help

Melissa

If you are earning 10K a month it will be a non-issue as the qualifications for a P1 Employment Pass is a minimum salary of 7k/mo. The government feels that if you are worth that kind of money, the having of a degree would not really be relevant as you experience is worth much more. So having said that I would include the education even though you don't have the sheepskin to go with it. As you EP has to be applied for by your employer they will have to verify the Salary level and that is what is going to get you the P1 EP.

Unfortunately, the online assessment tool will not work unless you input professional qualifications as it is made for general knowledge and not specifics. Even if you qualify according to the assessment tool you may still be rejected.

See THIS LINK. Specifically the requirements for P1 passes.
