I'm Q1 holder not Q2. If I'm not mistaken nowadys no more Q2 pass as it was changed to S pass.The benefit a P2 holder has is that a P2 holder can sponsor LTSVPs for his parents and his inlaws. Q2 holders cannot. So thats the only impact you will have.
The logic behind that was that if you are earning less than 3500$(Q2 pass) you wont have enough to support your parents or inlaws. But since you earn 4.5k+, you should be able to support them. Kinda wierd rule.
I'll not apply DP pass for my family. Living in Indonesia still ok for me. Maybe sometimes need to bring my family for refreshing..
With 10+ years IT prof experiences + MCITP-Enterprise Admins + sal P2 range, still makes MOM sniff something fishy on me?Maybe there is something about your profession, your profile or employer that makes MOM sniff something fishy and hence they dont think you can sustain that salary for long and hence to be on the safe side you have been given Q2 pass. If you are able to sustain the job and salary for one year, who knows may be your pass will be upgraded.
Of course I'll upgrade my skills eventually. Not cuz I'm working in SG, but it will make us more valuable.
