Need Advise

Postby afthab » Mon, 26 Nov 2012 3:12 pm

Hi,

I had worked in Singapore for almost a year in 2010. Due medical reasons i had to move out of country for some time. Meantime to be honest my performance in the company which i was working was not up to the expectations and mutually we agreed to part ways. My visa cancellation was done when i was out of county and i couldn't return to Singapore to fulfill formalities, meantime i have settled all my mobile bills, bills and dues to any organization that i had dealt with in Due time.

I would like to know

1) Will i ever be able to visit Singapore as a tourist or on a business visa from any other international country?

2) Is there any legal dues or settlement which i need to do?

3) Will there be any case issues or problems against me in Singapore MOL?

4) What all things i need to do to make things clear?.

I dont want any bad name against me in any country i have been, and i would love to visit back to the beautiful country whose valuable experience made me a succesfull professional today.

Regards,
Muhamed

1) As long as you didn't do anything wrong while you were here, this should not be a problem.

2) Nope, sounds like you paid for everything. Did you miss anything?

3) What is MOL?

4) Are you providing us with all details?

Based on details you volunteered, you're fine. What you didn't tell us could paint another picture. Where were you living during your less than 1yr residency? Did you have a lease? How long was it for? Under what terms did you cancel it? Most leases in Singapore are 1 or 2 yrs, and if you cancel early you need to pay out the lease UNLESS you have a valid diplomatic clause. Did you, and did it apply when you cancelled?

Probably means the MOM (Ministry of Labour in a lot of countries).

He shouldn't have any problems and I have a feeling he was probably on either a WP or an S pass, so possibly had no tax liability with IRAS. Although, if I were him, I would check with IRAS to ensure that was the case. He should know his FIN number so it would only be a phone call away to ensure that he is also clear there. If he had a tax liability, then his old employer would have and to pay it. If substantial, they could be looking to recoup the monies......

If he needs a visa to visit Singapore would having one successfully issued prior to arrival be an indication that he is 'in the clear' (and if the process raises flags, it gives him a chance to deal with them)?

HI,

Sorry for replying you late. For your point 2

4) I had a lease i paid the lease amount as per the clause to cancel it.
I had mobile bills due which i again paid on time and got the cancellation letter from starhub

I dont have to lie as i have admitted that the tenure in my job was not that succesful.

Yes MOL was MOM.

I was on an employment pass but didn't have much salary transferred to account for Tax liability.
