Relocating to Singapore

Post by Vicky » Mon, 20 Dec 2004 1:48 pm

Hi,

I am relocating to Singapore next month because i have got a job offer there.

Some of my biggest concerns are:

1) I had to resign at my current firm since we have a one month notice period. The firm that i join in Singapore has started processing for the VISAS but it will take a month and i may have to fly in matter of few days from getting my VISA. I am an Indian and i was refused entry to US on a business trip last year due to young age (24). Am i at risk because of VISAS and since i have already resigned?

2) What will be cost of living (approx) + taxes for me?

Bad move -- never resign before your new job is fully sorted out. But no, Singapore doesn't care or know about your US visa applications... probably...

This is the single most frequently asked question here, do a search.

Thanks for your reply.

Correction here.

I have all the paperwork at the Singapore firm completed. VISA processing is being done by a firm hired by my employer in Singapore. I was advised by my new employer not to wait till i get my VISAs because it might take a few weeks and i have to join office in Singapore in a month's time.

I do know the cost of living is a very frequent question. However, I have got all varying estimates of cost of living on the web.
