Sorry mate, no chance.

Your Master is distance learning ?

What Bachelor degree are you holding ?

If your degrees are from the same country as you are posting from, it's going to be pretty hard as I'm not sure they recognize any degrees at all from that country.

The government have a list of approved universities that they will accept people's degrees from, if yours isn't on that list then it's tough luck basically

A good example of what I'm talking about is the way the Singapore Government sees it, not your government. Take Medical schools for example. There is only ONE medical school in all of Asia (Including the subcontinent) that is recognized by the Singapore Medical Association and that one is in Hong Kong. No Asian Dental schools are recognized either and very few uni's from your country are recognized either. That fact that your country thinks it's a good school, doesn't mean other countries do. Fact of life.
