Visa requirement are the same for all Employment Pass levels. An EP doesn't stop you from leaving the country. Although if you do a runner and don't come back (e.g., did not file a tax clearance, if required) then IRAS would flag your passport and you would be caught upon re-entering the country in the future if you came back. But for vacations, no problems.

Hi,

I am an Indian working currently in Africa in Telecom sector and I am planning to apply for PEP. The information you have provided is very useful. However, I would like to mail to you directly and seek your advice on a few areas of business and employment in Singapore as well as certain things related to PEP. Would you please drop a mail to my personal ID: aniyan2002@yahoo.com. That will be very helpful for me. You have mentioned that PEP is valid for 5 years.Is that so? I thought 6 months.A mail directly to me will be highly appreciated and will be extremely helpful.

Thanks and Regards,
Pradeep.K

[quote="erikpatsg"]Hi all, last Monday may 12 I got my PEP.
It is all pretty new to the MoM so there has been quite a bit of confusion within their organization and I got different answers but thanks to this forum I persisted and finally succeeded.
I got my PEP based on my salary/career in my home country. So I simply filled in the form, put my dutch gross salary in, added my 2007 payslip and a letter of reference from my previous company and went to sinpost to get it processed.
This turned out to be the most difficult part of the whole thing as according to the MoM I could skip certain parts of the form, but the sinpost computer and counter staff didn't really know how to handle this. Anyway, after a few telcons back and forth between MoM sinpost and myself this was finally sorted and the PEP was approved within 10 days or so.
I couldn't apply for it on line as I was holiding a social visit pass and without FIN nrs etc you can't access on line.
It's valid for 5 years and will cost you 10 dollar for the application and 150 dollar for collecting the pass.

Hope this info is useful for future PEP applicants.
Good luck![/quote]

It will have the same benefits as your P1 visa.

First of all, we rarely will reply to an email. If the information is useful, it will be posted here for all to see.

Second, why don't you read up on the MOM website? You would see that the PEP is valid for 5 years, as noted. You have 6 months to find a job, and if you do not find a job in that time, your PEP becomes invalid. It's all on the MOM website.

Help needed on PEP form

Postby spmurugesan » Tue, 31 May 2011 9:37 pm

Great to see all the expert advise here!

I am in the process of applying PEP under overseas applicant with SGD $7000 category.

When I fill up the application form in the Part 1A, it is asking Singapore residential address. Since I am a foreigner can I leave it blank. I do have local contact person to fill in Part 3.

Kindly advise!

Thanks!

You need a local address, someone willing to provide NRIC/FIN number. Cannot be blank or you will never get a notification... the first one being that you have no notification address.
