Queries on relocating

Postby abhilash_shah » Tue, 13 Sep 2011 9:40 pm

Hi all,
I have few queries. Would really appreciate your thoughts on this.
I am currently in India and planning to relocate to Singapore.

Below are my queries:
1. I am aware of EPEC, however what are my options incase my EPEC gets rejected. Can I find job on Visitor Visa? I am aware you cant work on Visitor Visa, but I guess you can search for job.
2. For how long can i stay on Visitor Visa? Can I extend my stay if required.
3. I have widow mother. By any chance, can I have her to stay with me in Singapore? Would she be able to apply Long term Visit Visa and stay with me? If yes, how long would she be allowed to stay on this Visa?
4. My spouse is MD in Gynac. Would she be directly allowed to work or will have to give any licensing exam to join any hospital?

I am really looking forward for expert comments. I would really appreciate for your guidance.

Warm Regards,

Hi Abhilash,

You may be wondering why no-one has replied to your post yet. It's probably because your questions have already been answered in other threads on this forum. So your best bet is to use the search function (above and to the right of where you are reading this) - it really does work well and I'm sure you'll find most/all of the information you're looking for that way.

Also, it's worth having a look through the section under this forum specifically concerned with PR, Citizenship, Passes & Visas for Foreigners.

If you still have specific questions after that then you can try posting them here.

Hope this helps.
Be careful what you wish for
