Prior to becoming a permanent employee I was working for the same bank through another consultant. The consultant doesnt have any problem with sponcering parents/inlaws. Its just this large bank. Still dont understand why.sundaymorningstaple wrote:And this is one of the very reasons why they are tightening it up.revhappy wrote: 1 big advantage of PEP for me is that I can sponsor my parents and in laws. My employer, inspite of being a large global IB doesn't sponsor parents or inlaws, if they do its only in extreme cases.
Anyways, My parents and in laws are living happily in India and they have visited SG as tourists before and wouldn't want to ever come here. But we had a baby girl last month and I may need my mother in law to be here for few months. I hope my employer will take that into consideration and sponsor her.
I would hate to change to PEP just for that one reason. They have also increased the pass fee to 150$. So with myself and wife and the baby, that 150X3= 450$ that I will have to shell out and also the fee for the LTSVP, not sure how much it is. Not worth it.
