Applying for REP, 2nd Gen PR after serving NS

Post by chandraaaaa » Fri, 22 Jul 2011 3:52 pm

Hello all,

i've searched the forums but don't really have an answer to my question.

A bit about my situation,
I'm a 2nd generation PR, served my NS and went to the States to study. Last year when I went back to renew my REP, I was given a year (I was in my last year of school). Now, since I've graduated, I've obtained a 1 year OPT (Optional Practical Training) visa to work (still under a student visa).

I have to apply for an REP renewal this December and I will be 4 months into my OPT. What are the chances of getting a renewal? Also, I do wish to work for a couple of years (2-3) before going back to Singapore as experience abroad is definitely a lot more valued in the eyes of the employee.

Just before you start saying that I'm trying to bend the rules, my Dad does own a company in Singapore and it is also his wish that I learn from other companies in the US before returning to help him. I am coming back to help him, just not right now because I do not have enough experience and knowledge to help.

Anybody went through the same situation? would love some advice!

Did you attain Exit Permit when you left overseas. ?
How long for did you went to US for study ?
Your PR/REP is it a 10 yr or 5 yrs validity ?
