I've been offered a relocation to singapore within the company, will earn about 15k.
Got no degrees, but about 12years experience.
Should I be worried?


IMHO, no, if your company is going to pay you that much. The P1 min. salary has risen or soon to be in June to $8K. You are above that min. requirement. MOM still needs to vet you though

In this day and age degrees are a dime a dozen. Experience and common sense? Not so easy to find. Especially in Singapore.
