Staying in Singapore - working abroad visa question

Post by beenthere » Tue, 11 May 2010 11:29 pm

I did some searching in the forums but could not quite find the answer to my question. My wife and I are relocating to Singapore from the US in July - I will be tagging along on a DP while I job hunt. In the interim, I have consulting gigs lined up that I can do remotely - a good broadband is all I need. Now - what kind of work permit would I need to have to do so. All my consulting gigs are with US companies.

Cheers ..

Much obliged. Of course, I preferred the unofficial lexicon.

At least I learned how venerable LKY's party's acronym should be pronounced. I had it pair with "smear". Go figure.
