P2 and Q1 Differences?

Postby Hanakuso » Thu, 04 Nov 2010 5:26 pm

I hold a BA from a top US university and my monthly salary is over $4500. Since I fit all the criteria, my company originally applied to get me a P2 employment pass, but it was denied and instead they are issuing me a Q1.

From what I have been able to gather from the MOM website, it seems to only really affect long term social visits and dependents, which doesn't concern me much.

My question is, are there any other differences between the Q1 and the P2? People have told me that it can cause trouble when opening cell phone accounts or lines of credit. Can anyone elaborate?

Thank you.

This is the only difference.

These things are only income dependent. As long as your income is a least at a certain level they don't care what designation is on the EP.

Thank you.
