Applying for work permit with a DUI

Postby Matt2113 » Sat, 12 Jan 2013 8:22 am

My company is expanding to Singpaore and asking me to head up that office. I got a DUI in 2011, first offense and was sentenced to 24hours in county jail (there was not an accident injury etc).

I have not been able to find a clear answer on this. Will this DUI affect my application for a long term work permit ?

Any feed back would be greatly appreciated.

In my opinion no. But please come back and tell us the outcome - this question has been asked a few times with no real data points collected.

You were 'sentenced' to a day in jail by a court: or, you were locked up overnight as you were deemed not fit to drive home?

There's quite some difference there.

Thanks for quick response to this matter. I was sentenced to 24hours in jail as part of completing the courts requirements.

Obtain a criminal clearance certificate from your state or local police station. The description of the offense and sentence on it will be the best guide to the reaction here from ICA/MOM.

These can often be obtained online now.
