I would like to know if there is a demand for mainframe based jobs in singapore. I do not see many openings. I have over 4 years of experience in mainframes. Im currently on LTSVP, but have applied for PR. I have not gotten any response for the numerous jobs I applied for. Is the lack of response because of the market or visa status or in general there are not many jobs in mainframe in singapore.

PDP-11 was a mini... and big boxes are going strong... for a couple of reasons... legacy systems... and when you get through stacking hundreds of servers in racks, it costs about the same to run a piece of big iron, properly virtualized to look like anything you want.
Actaully, a mainframe can be much more green... so many servers not being fully utilized.
