To get a work visa (EP), you need a university degree relevant to your job.
Which degree is relevant to waiter or barman?!?

Three ways.

1) Work/Holiday programme (Google MOM)
2) Get PR (Google MOM/ICA)
3) Use EntrePass and open your own business then you can work any job you want to in the business. (Google MOM again)

Otherwise, gonna be rough if not impossible.

It's tough.. These sorts of jobs cannot be categorized for in need of foreign talent... there are plenty of Singaporeans doing it... I used to work as a bartender in Singapore, but was refused extension of my SPass by MOM... Also relevant degree would be necessary as well as experience.. And someone asked about the relevant qualification for bartender up there.. It would be a Degree in Restaurant Management or something such.... And you can forget about getting a job as a receptionist in Singapore being a foreigner....
