SPR without salary slips

Postby ganeshnrng » Fri, 15 Feb 2013 10:44 pm

You cannot get PR until you have been here on an EP for at least 2 years or three tax assessments. OR, you are applying under the family ties scheme. If you are not already married to a Singaporean, then the family ties scheme is out of the question. This only leave the PTS method "Professional, Technical Scheme. For that you will need to work as noted above on an EP at least 2 years.

I suggest you stay right where you are.


dear i know wht u r saying and i already this information that once i vl be there i hv to be on E Pass for 2 years and under PTS method i can apply for SPR.

i just confused bcz i hv been told that i vl nt able to get Pay Slips but vl get salary in my account through company account. So i m worried that i vl be able to apply for SPR after 2 years on EP or not??????

Doubtful, considering you cannot even type English. This isn't a phone keyboard, therefore you can use all the letters of the alphabet. Make people think you have a modicum of education. If you employer isn't giving you a payvoucher, then they will also be in trouble with the MOM when MOM does their audits as they will normally request copies of three months worth of payvouchers. No pay vouchers, bit trouble on Employment Passes. We cannot tell you more. Either you believe us or you don't. I'm don't repeating myself. Good luck. I feel you are going to need it. If ICA wants payvouchers for PR then you better provide there or pffft! Don't waste your time.

In fact, unless you are Chinese from Malaysia, if you don't make at least 8K/mo it's doubtful that you would have any success with PR and even then it will be slim.

No pay vouchers is a scam. Even with direct deposit to your account, the company would at least email you a pay voucher, showing total pay, deductions, date of deposit, etc.

SMS and others have it right... and you probably already know it... you will have to give back money to the employer.

More reasons why you should not even bother:

Either those words are just so difficult for someone to spell, or this is how morons communicate.

There's just no place for that unless one is constrained by being on Twitter or SMS. And even then, just a Bad Idea.

Sadly, I find more and more Indians from the young generation doing this. I guess they think its cool. Considering that they have such pathetic grammar, vocabulary and make so many spelling mistakes even when they intend to write in full, the least they should try to do is to practice to write in full :roll:

Well, I don't know that it's strictly an Indian thing, I think a lot of people from many countries and races choose to do this. I know you're not saying that it's limited to one place or people.

There was however one on my team in India who kept using "v" for "we" in an international public chat channel dedicated for an initiative I was running, and I wasn't having any of that on my channel.

There's two problems with this kind of thing - it's hard to tell that the person actually knows the correct way to write, and, these people adopt the incorrect pronunciation that this kind of writing suggests. Case in point is "dun" (instead of the ever-so-difficult-to-write "don't") which some Singaporeans seem particularly fond of.

Like Miles Davis, allegedly, said "you're never more than a half-step away from a right note" - if you're misspelling something when it's pretty much just as easy to spell it correctly, then You're Doing It Wrong.

Question for WD40. Curiosity as even my wife cannot tell me why this happens.....

very. Indians tend to say "wery" pronouncing the 'v' as as 'w'.

But on the other hand, William tends to come out "V"illiam.

Why is that? Obviously it's not a sound impediment as they can produce both sounds clearly, but why are they used in a dyslexic manner by most.

That's the one I hate the most, and when I see it written in business related emails I find it very hard to take the writer seriously. :x

Anyway, ganeshnrng, aside from the dubious "no payslips" scenario, what makes you so sure that you want to settle down permanently in Singapore if you haven't even moved here yet? Two words spring to mind: excessive haste.
Be careful what you wish for

Wtf is "VL"? I can't even figure that one out.

OP, as an Indian looking to come here for SPR, the lack of paystubs is the least of your problem. Your race is and low income is. $4.5k/month won't get you a PR even if you have monthly pay stubs hand scribed on fine parchment.

In Indian language phonetics, the sound 'v' exists and 'w' doesnt exist. So you will notice that most will pronounce 'very' correctly as opposed to 'will'.

Most Indians, by most I mean 99.99% dont even know that 'v' and 'w' are pronounced differently. The only way I found out the difference was when I attended the accent neutralization training in my 1st job for an American call center. Although English is the medium of teaching in India, sadly, stuff like pronunciation isn't taught in India.

Some other common mistakes that Indians make.
They can't pronounce the "Th" as in "This" correctly.
They can't pronounce the "Th" in "Thanks" correctly.
They can't pronounce the 'k' sound in 'kite' correctly.
They can't pronounce the 'T' sound in 'Ten' correctly.

There are several other mistakes that many Indians make, but the examples are which even the best of the best can't get it right, simply because those sounds dont exist, or are slightly different in our languages for example the "Th" sound you need to like push your tongue out and get it back, between your teeth swiftly while blowing air out to get the sound perfectly. Thats like a big circus for us :lol: We were taught that during our Accent Neutralization training, yet only few get it correct with lots of practice.

On the flip side, after almost 30 years of marriage, I still cannot duplicate the head movements either, so I guess we are even! :lol:

Regarding the Th thing. Yeah, my wife has that bad habit when she's not thinking about it. Quite often I get a good laugh when she tells me were having chicken thighs for dinner. I usually come back with "a couple of tender young sweet Thai's sounds good to me". For which I usually get whacked with a ladle or spoon. :cool:
