Can I get back what I have lost?

Postby coolstorybro » Mon, 02 May 2011 11:25 pm

Hi Gurus,

I have decided to post this question after trying to find the closest scenario possible of my current situation in the forum , but to my best of knowledge, didn't find any. So here it goes :


Q1:
I have worked for this company for 3 months ( on EP) and I am a permanent employee. I am puzzled when I was told I need to wait 6 months before my company can help me fill up form 4A ,are there any basis for this?Have checked on ICA website , but didn't find any such requirement.



Q2 : What are my chances of getting back my REP ?

Myself
-Malaysian Chinese
-Studied in NUS ( graduated 2003 )
-Former SPR ( 2004-2009 )
-Posted overseas, still on SG payroll (2007-2008)
-worked for overseas company on overseas payroll (2008-2010)
-tried Renew REP online - rejected :( ( year 2009 )
- did not withdraw any CPF ( cant anyway )
- got a job on EP P1 in SG (2011)

Wife
-Bruneian Citizen Chinese
-NUS (graduated 2003 )
-No SPR
-went back Brunei
-Studied Graduate Dip in Singapore ( 2006)
- worked on EP in SG ( 2007-2009 )
- was overseas (2009)
- back in SG on EP P2 ( 2010 till now )


both:
-got married in Malaysia (since 2009 )
-decided to settle down in SG, bought a house 2011
-total household income (exclude bonus) = 13k a mth


Q3 :
Should we apply our PR independently ? or should I sponsor my wife?

Appreciate any inputs,
Have a great week ahead!

If you are an ex SPR, Chinese and earning that amount ,yours will be a shoe in. Apply under family is the first step. 3 months working here does not proof much, I would say at least six months to a year then go for it.
Your application is abit early, I would say. Patience is the essence of all ventures !!
The positive thinker sees the invisible, feels the intangible, and achieves the impossible.Yahoo !!!
