First off, me and my girlfriend are planning to move to Singapore and work there, we tried looking for jobs online and did apply to some. We did apply to the same field we are currently working.
Im quite confused on how the EP and S pass works, we did the test online and sadly the result said that i was unlikely to qualify EP but i did qualify the S Pass. Does that mean i am also unlikely to get accepted on the jobs we applied for? As for my girlfriend she didnt have any problems with the test as she have a Masters Degree, thesis shy of a PHD.
The tests are not tests, but only general assessments. These are not guarantees that you would be acceptable to be granted a work visa of any sort. While you and your gf are possibly acceptable for different types of visas, that doesn't mean you will bet granted one. It only means that you won't be rejected for your academics/experience. Unfortunately, the employment visa process is a two part process. You have to qualify AND the employer must both qualify AND be able to document WHY they need to hire if foreigner if there are sufficient local/PR's around that have similar qualifications/experience. If there are, it doesn't matter how qualified you are, you will be still be rejected. The odds of you getting a position here is slim at best and impossible at worst. Your girlfriend, depending on the requirements of the company should have an easier time of it, but again there are no guarantees. Do not quit your other job until you have confirmation of acceptance by receipt of an AIP (Approval in Principle) from the MOM. Of course you have to find a company first that is willing to hire you as they are the ones who have to file for the employment pass as they are your sponsors.
I graduated with an associate degree in computers, a year shy of a BS. I do have 3 years work experience related to the job we we're applying to. Would it be possible for me to get accepted on the companies we applied to? Cheers!
--- btw we applied for BPO/Contact Centre jobs.
Now if you had read the MOM site, you will know the anwer: You need an employer to apply for a pass, you can't apply for yourself, unlike some other countries ..xrmxrm wrote:I take it if we can find a company that is willing to hire and process the employment pass for us it woud be much easier for us to enter SG and work there?
we're from the philippines looking to move to SG hopefully in the next few months. we are also considering going to SG and scout for a job there, if either one of us gets accepted (which would probably her) the other would tag along and hunt for one, and hopefuly gets hired.ecureilx wrote:Now if you had read the MOM site, you will know the anwer: You need an employer to apply for a pass, you can't apply for yourself, unlike some other countries ..xrmxrm wrote:I take it if we can find a company that is willing to hire and process the employment pass for us it woud be much easier for us to enter SG and work there?
And as to your coming and working - above has to be met - to work here, and alternate, you can come on Social Visit pass and scout for a job, and once you get your Pass, you can work here ..
Pray - which country are you from ?
Well, I would love to know how old you are .. and how old your partner is ..xrmxrm wrote: we're from the philippines looking to move to SG hopefully in the next few months. we are also considering going to SG and scout for a job there, if either one of us gets accepted (which would probably her) the other would tag along and hunt for one, and hopefuly gets hired.
and on a side note what is the minimum age requirement to be able to work in singapore alone? would it be 18 or 21? thanks
Maybe a thread drift but .. couldn't resist ..xrmxrm wrote:im 20 years old and my girlfriend is over 23, so if 23 is the minimum age requirement them im definitely screwed.ecureilx wrote:
she's aiming for BPO as she doesnt want to practice the degree she finished. well atleast not in singapore
Exactly what I said -I was a jack of all trades - and I seamlessly slotted into my first job- unrelated to my field of study ..xrmxrm wrote:not that the BPO industry is completely unrelated to her field of study(ies) (we're both are jack of all trades, well sorta), its just at the moment its easier for her to get employed with BPO
as or the age limit i'll go probing around, hopefully there some leeway or workaround available for me. or else im screwd for good.
thanks you guys been helpful, i'll continue to update and ask regularly haha
Thank you for the quick response.sundaymorningstaple wrote:Unless you are being offered at least S$7K/mo (P1 Pass) you have to have at least a qualifying degree. However, they may offer you an S pass, which only requires suitable degree/diploma or technical certifications & experience. There are restrictions on dependents when you have a S Pass (some even within the S pass depending on income levels).

Tell 'em to pay you 7K/mo and you should be okay.
