Indian Relocating from UK with Speeding tickets

Postby Kanecha » Tue, 30 Aug 2011 3:41 am

Hi,

I am an Indian passport holder currently residing in the UK - my current Tier 1 is valid till March 2012. I am applying for an ILR later this month and also trying to relocate to Singapore irrespective of the outcome. I have 2 questions -

1. I have 3 speeding tickets in the UK - will this have any bearing on my Employment Pass / PR in Singapore.

2. In case my ILR (UK PR) is refused - will this impact my migration to Singapore?

Thanks
Kanecha

Have you thought of applying for Canada or Australia citizenship as well. You know, just as a safety net?

The only very very remote impact it may have is with your driving license may not be converted to a Singaporean.

I agree with JR8 though, if you have to relocate to Singapore regardless of your UK PR outcome why waste sombody else's chance of getting a UK PR:x

Yes, why not go for Canada, New Zealand, and Australia as well to be on the safe side!

Thanks All for your responses!

Do you mean to say I can apply to these countries for a PR based on my 5 year residence in the UK?

Anyway, my main reason (which I should have mentioned earlier!) for Singapore is that my wife is a Singapore citizen and works there as a pre school teacher.

A curious question .. how do one relocate to Singapore ?? Pick the bags and arrive and become a resident ?? :???: :???:

If you are going to apply for PR, you need to declare 'criminal records' not speeding tickets .. unless you were too fast that your speed was considered criminal :D :D

No. What they are saying is that they don't like people like you who abuse PR and EP's by trying to collect multiple passes from different countries.

+1

PR is for people to contribute to the country .. (not like the report I read that 90% of new residents in UK stop their chosen profession and decide to take a long term break, like doctors suddenly becoming call center agents, to kill time .. and IT grads working in grocery shop .. et al . )

The worst that can happen is that you relocate to Singapore, the UK gets rid of you and Singapore refuses you PR even though you maybe married to a Singaporean. Your other half would have to be earning the minimum wage criteria in Singapore, even for you to be allowed to join her on a long term visitors pass.!

My guess is that if you are working in UK, you maybe better off hanging on to your job for a while, if you do not qualify for an employment pass in your own right. I would think you are financially better off in UK, than you would be in Singapore, unless you have a very good degree with lots of experience.

The global culture change we are apparently seeing according to some statistics, is that it doesn't matter where in the world you end up, so all the permanent residence hostility is like the wind blowing with no affect :lol: 3rd world war maybe a more appropriate concern with dwindling fertility rates in almost every Country but those against using contraceptives :roll: who appear to be stepping up the Luuuuve :-| 10 Fold :shock:

Thanks guys for your 'heart warming' responses! I was dumb enough to think that JR8 was genuinely advising :?

Well the original intention for me & my wife was to settle in the UK. But then my wife had issues with UK immigration and could enter UK only after I became a PR here. So we waited for 2 years and also appealed the refusal in the meanwhile. The UK regulations changed in April this year making it difficult for me to settle because of my traffic offences. I was totally confused as I have an established career here.

I have now asked my employer for a relocation to Singapore. The plan was to return to UK (as a returning resident) if my application for PR here is successful (against all odds) after spending a couple of years in Singapore. If not, apply for a PR in Singapore. So that we can start a family life at least now - two years after our wedding!

Still feel I'm stepping on someone else's PR chances? Can't help! :o

(btw I've paid my speeding tickets - but under UK laws they don't become spent until after 5 years - till when you will have issues with your settlement application)

I though JR8 was advising you until you start to flail ..

yes, can't help it .. still you are hurting other people's chance .. in which case, you already have decided to do it .. and as from what I see, Singapore is a stepping stone for you to get back into UK .. so .. good on you ..

(btw I've paid my speeding tickets - but under UK laws they don't become spent until after 5 years - till when you will have issues with your settlement application)


What makes you think Singapore has a counter that says "pay here, and collect the PR in the next counter ?? "

Singapore too does conduct background checks, and any criminal records / police record has to be disclosed ..


PS: maybe you want answers to be sugar coated and to your liking ?? :D :D Sorry, if that didn't come out right ..

Sorry, my bad! They aren't a criminal conviction and if you didn't lose your license, because of points totting up, you should have no problems entering and driving in Singapore.
