You can use the forum search tools to see specific examples of people trying to obtain a PEP. The topic has been discussed many times.

The qualifications for a PEP are listed here:

http://www.mom.gov.sg/foreign-manpower/passes-visas/personalised-employment/before-you-apply/Pages/default.aspx

If I did the monetary conversion correctly, you qualify on the salary scale. However, the Singaporean government has tightened up eligibility to receive any sort of work pass over the past year or so. They will look very hard at your education certificates and look for any excuse to deny your PEP. You will probably have better luck finding a job first and having the company sponsor an employment pass on your behalf. A possible drawback to that plan is that your work experience is not in a field currently facing employee shortages in Singapore, so you have a long search ahead of you.

Sorry to rain on your parade. :-|

I'm confused by your post. Don't take offense, but your grammar and formatting is so poor as to cause this confusion. I'm not sure if you're asking questions or making statements. You also have two lists of two items each numbered 1 and 2. You should work on that.

Anyway, you can apply for a PEP without having a job if you meet the requirements. Just google for "Singapore PEP requirements" to see if you meet them. You can also apply for a PEP after you're employed, but in order to obtain employment you'd have to have already received an EP. I'd suggest applying for the PEP as soon as possible. It will be to your benefit to have that PEP when you're applying for positions so you can tell the employer. It makes things easier for them.

You said your salary in India is "6 lac". Is that 6 lakh INR?
6 lakh Indian rupees = 13 810.3701 Singapore dollars

IS this per month or per year? If it is monthly, you qualify for a PEP no problem. That's a good salary by Singapore standards, and an excellent salary by Indian standards. You should be aware you can live a much better lifestyle in India on that much salary. I also can't imagine you're going to make that much per month in Singapore working sales or operations with such poor English (Sorry, but it's the truth).

If that is per year, then I'd suggest not even wasting your money on the ticket to come over.

I have a feeling he's a spammer testing the waters as he's using an Indian IP address that is famous for hosting spammer by the '000's.

The INR 6 Lakh figure most likely to be per annum IMO based on the OP's degree, industry and sorry to be blunt - the quality of the post. Hopefully, I am not shooting on my foot :cool:
