@JR8, if while applying for LTSVP you are given a 2 month extension on your SVP then that is sheer relief. I don't want to be in a catch 22 situation.

Much Appreciated mate.

Cheerios.


Just checked my passport, yes they gave me 60 days, stamped in my passport at the ICA (Kallang Road) counter.

Maybe I am a bit late to the party, but you need to obtain visa in advance, and you need to visit the local Embassy in India, and get the SVP and then arrive and apply / submit for LTVP with your EPEC

Read up on the ICa site for more info

Cheers



Ah but that depends on what nationality he is, and he has not said. I agree with you that he needs to check the ICA site, and if required get the SVP sorted in advance, before arriving and applying for the LTVP.

Thought he did mention somewhere - Ali in India :)

Ali could either be from any South Asian, but .. if he is in India, he has to be from Indian .. regional politics :D

Anyway, he did confirm he has got his SVP

I am a fellow alumni of Ali, but currently residing in Germany. What nationality do you think that makes me? :wink:

Actually, what he said was, and I quote:

My name is Ali and I am a Leeds University Graduate currently in India


Which does not indicate that (s)he is an Indian (although presumably he is at least of Indian extraction). The operational word that makes the answer ambiguous is "currently" which could mean that they were posted there, just like expats are posted here. So without further data input from the poster, I would have to disagree that it is confirmed that he is an Indian citizen. Or for that matter a citizen from any south Asian country. He could be a British born citizen of Indian extraction with a British University education. So you see, assumptions are a dangerous thing.

Twank (that's the noise of my foot in my mouth) :???: :???:

My boolean logic needs to be refined - if it walks like a .. and talks like a ... :D

Cheers (no offense I was just doing some idle banter - hope I didn't step on your toes .. )

hehehehehe..lots of ambiguity and ruckus later, let me clarify here and put all your guesswork and dissection and assumptions to rest. I am of Indian extraction hehehe as my friend sundaymorningstaple rightly points out. I did spend the most beautiful years of my life in England and did my Masters there.
@ecureilx, assumptions are dangerous and rightly so. I didn't mention in my earlier post that I have secured a SVP. That is something which the travel agent will sort out.

Thanks for all your replies ma mates. I ll cherish them..

cheerios.

Thanks Ecureilx.
Don't know if this is the right thread to be posting this question, but for a job seeker like me, what areas would you recommend me to be staying in whilst looking for work on a shoestring budget.

Cheers.
