Singapore work permit and criminal record in canada

Post by tigui » Fri, 19 Nov 2010 2:57 pm

Hi,

I'm a Canadian citizen, living in Montréal, Québec.

I'm currently in discussion with a company based in singapore regarding a position they would like to fill.

They are willing to take care of all the relocation details from moving to applying for a work permit.

Before I go further with this project, I would like to clarify something, I have a criminal record in Canada, do you think this will prevent me from obtaining a work permit in Singapore ? Any information on this subject would be appreciated.

The offence occured in 2006 and is drug related.

Regards,

--

There was another poster who had the same problem. Use the search function under the "profile" link in the top right hand corner.

My 2c - don't lie on your application - that is the worst thing you can do and the worst thing that can happen here is that you don't get the work permit, but such is life.

The other post was from a person from the US, not from Canada.

Why would the Singapore gahmen treat Canadians differently than Americans?
