Long term and short term confusion

Post by santhosh john » Wed, 22 Sep 2010 3:18 pm

Dear all, currently I am working in a contract position. It is getting over by october. I am a local post graduate from NTU. I am an Indian. I am planning to apply for long term visa which is needed to search for a job. My fatehr is a singapore PR, here follow the steps,
1. when my contract is over, I will be given a short term visa
2. I will apply a long term
3. I heard, it will take around 2 months to get a long term, in between I need to visit my home
4. In this case, do I need to take another short term visa when my long term gets approved and I need to come to Singapore?
I tried to be clear. Im sorry.

I remembered you . You already knew the answer before. Why ask again?
If not sure go to the search button under the profile link and type all about staying and living here.

Alternatively go to www.ica.gov.sg

I know, but I wanted to confirm it. In anyways, can I use the long term visa approval letter to enter Singapore? or it is necessary to take a stv? Please help out!

Agreed.... everything was there for him to see and yet he is scared shit and needs hand holding. What the hell did NTU teach him in the Uni.?
I went to two Universities and I turned out to be alright.

1. University of U NEVER STUDY
2. University of Hard Knock Inc.
