P1 EP - Can I earn from other sources

Postby philipm » Tue, 28 Dec 2010 9:57 am

Hi,

I am in Singapore on a P1 EP. In addition to my day job, I am a keen photographer. Am I able to charge/receive income from photography in Singapore? It would represent a fraction of my waged income.

Thanks,
Philip

Legally? No.

Thanks. That is what I expected, but wanted to check.

Would a PEP allow this, or would my only real option be to go PR?

Huh, something about this site removes the power of google from posters!

Try http://www.mom.gov.sg/foreign-manpower/ ... fault.aspx

"Note: The PEP holder is not allowed to start his/her own business or engage in any entrepreneurial activities. The holder must apply for an EntrePass if he/she intends to do so."

You noticed that too! :P

All along I was beginning to think it was my imagination. :-|

Thanks. Sounds like the easiest/best approach is to go PR. =)

Not much chance of that either!
