I hope someone can help me out here...

I am an Australian and have a potential job offer in Singapore. My daughter who was born in Australia 9 years ago obtained her Singapore citizenship via citizen by descent. My wife is a Singapore citizen and an Australian PR currently. My daughter has been attending school in Australia thus far.

My potential job offer in Singapore includes provision of International Schooling for my daughter. However, I was advised that she may have trouble enrolling into one since she is a citizen of Singapore.

Appreciate if someone could offer some advice on this. Cheers!

This is correct, she will need a permission from MOE. It is probably the best you contact MOE directly.

I have no idea how do they see temporary returning citizens but I believe you may have a case.

Does anyone know if my daughter who is sin citizen by descent and born and bred in Thailand does not take the oath of citizenship, will she be allowed a PR status instead?

My dilemma is that she now wants to work in sin and as a foreignor to apply job as fresh grad is slim, sin clamping foreign immigrants and bias towards ex sin . Some one suggested trying for PR( she never lived there) instead of taking the oath of citizenship.

My fear is if she doesn't like living in sin, coming background to Thailand gets tricky
