Pr on part-time job

Post by bry » Mon, 04 Jul 2011 11:42 am

I've been working in Singapore on an EP for some time (4 years). I'd like to apply for PR, but the company I work for, even though a great company, can't do PR applications. They explained the whys and wherefores, and what they said sounds fair enough.

I've now been offered a part-time gig with another company (i.e. 2-3 days per week). My current employer is good with it, since it won't clash with the work I do for them, so no problems there.

So the question now is: can the company I work part-time for apply for PR for me? They said they're willing, but they're not sure if they can, given the part-time job.

Cheers.

Please read more on PR applications. You apply for PR; the most a company can do is put in a good word for you which isn't much actually.

Before you even think about PR. Be aware it's illegal to do part time work for another employer if you are on an EP. Having said that, you don't need your present company to fill out annex A for your PR application anyway. It's nice but not necessary.

SMS, what we heard so far in our quest to get this sorted is that PT work for another company is fine, so long as company 1 has agreed to the employee working PT for company 2. Still trying to get this validated obviously.

But Nakatago and SMS, what you're saying is that the PR process is not a company-related application, is that correct?

if it weren't for the current political climate, we'd tell you to do it yourself but PR applications and approvals are iffy right now.

Totally incorrect. That is why you are still trying to validate it. You need an EP to work in Singapore. MOM does not issue more than one EP to an Individual at a time. What is there to validate. The law is staring you in the face. :roll: You got masters izzit?

Sure it's company related. Try applying for PR while you are unemployed to see if it's not company related. :roll: But you don't need Annex A anymore to prove it, and the company is not necessarily a needed piece of the puzzle as the having of a valid EP already proves the point that you are currently employed. And you Tax records will give indication of your earnings for the past couple of years.
