Question regarding LPR

Postby sinogunner » Thu, 15 Sep 2011 11:00 pm

Hi everyone,
I’ve got approval letter of LPR four days ago, it indicates that I have to take up full-time permanent gainful employment in Singapore before convert LPR to PR. Because LPR is in-principal PR, that means I still need an EP to secure a job position.

I hold EPEC to come to Singapore in 2009, the biggest obstacles to me to find job is PR。Because many companies in financial industry were reluctant to apply EP for a foreign staff. Even now, many job advertisements in JobsDB or Jobsreet still indicate that job is only for Singaporean or PR holder. So I am very worry about that potential employers will ignore LPR and still reject to apply EP for me.

By the way, can anyone tell me the current situation of financial industry in Singapore? I have Bachelor and Master degree in Australia, and I have three years working experience in investment consulting role.

Thanks

Hi Sinogunner,

Congrats for getting LPR. I would like to know when you have applied for SG LPR? How much time it has taken for you to get the LPR? Have you previously worked in Singapore?



Thank you.

Once you have a full time suitable job offer, it will take approximately 3 months for final processing the LPR to full PR. Once the submission of the LPR for employment is done, ICA will give you a temporary EP stamp in your passport so that you can legally work while waiting for the PR itself. (or they may just issue a card now, it's been awhile since I've seen one done) Congratuations, first LPF I heard being granted since the program was stopped at the end of June 2011.
