I guess it is time to try with an "Equal Opportunities Employer" though the very concept of that is in shambles.

@OP: Just send out as many applications as reasonably possible, but don't quit your day job just yet.

That's what I did. Of course, it took three years to land an offer... :P

Do a search online for companies based in Singapore that supply to Northern Africa or the Middle East. Then contact them.

If the company here really wants you, and you are not a security risk, then you can get in.

My friend holds an Afghan passport and he got a job here as a fresh grad last year. The poor guy gets security checked in little rooms in every airport he goes through.

So don't count yourself out so fast! :)
