Work Permit Document Required/ Relieving Letter

Postby balthazarzetty » Sat, 25 Oct 2008 2:55 pm

Hi All,

This is a nice forum and I am delighted to have found this website.Great work done to conceptualize such a website for all who wants to know something ( or anything about Singapore ).

I am currently working at an IT company and will be joining a New organisation next week.
They have agred to send me to Singapore after I join which should be within next few days.However my current employer has created issues and has refused to provide me with the Release Letter and has vowed to delay it as a bullying tactic even though I have offered them to settle matters financially.

I want to know if the Relieving/ Release letter from my current employer is absolutely necessary for Singapore Visa ? Is the Relieving Letter from my other previous employers going to help me ?

Will appreciate your assistance !

If your new employer doesn't care MOM doesn't care. Most people don't have "relieving letters"? Whatever that is.....

As long as your new employer files for your employment pass with the required educational documentation your should by "in like Flint!" provided which you prospective employer can write a good BS story as to why they need to hire a foreigner for the job in the first place.

Thanks for ur reply ! I guess I am worrying too much then :) .
I do have 6+ years of experience in IT and Banking and I have already furnished all my other papers ( education and experience ) which I guess should be good enough.
