Temporary EP, what kind of pass for wife?

Postby yanagi » Sun, 25 May 2008 5:56 pm

I just found a job in Singapore after several years PhD study in NUS. Got a letter from ICA allow me to apply PR and submit only in 3 days before the commencement of work, which will fall on some day 3 weeks later. and then they will issue me a temporary EP during the period before I got the any decision on my PR application.

However, my wife just having our baby and wanna quit her job next week. So, I wondering what kind of pass I can apply for my wife to keep her stay in SG.

Normally, I can get the EP, and at the same time ask company to apply dependent pass for my wife. But, I am not sure about temperatory EP things, especially it can only be issued 3 days before work, no earlier.

Any suggestion? Thanks

I would suggest you call either MOM or ICA under the circumstances.
