Ways to get PR to get a job in Sg.

Postby Guest » Tue, 21 Dec 2004 1:36 pm

It seems to me (from most online job ads) that to work in singapore, one needs to be a Singaporean or a PR. However, to get a PR, one needs to get a work permit first ... but if one doesn't get a job offer in Singapore, how does one get a work permit ??!!!? Hmm... I am pretty confused and lost ..

Sure seems like it. What it boils down to is, if you don't have a job in Singapore, you can't stay.

What is then the fastest / easiest way to get a PR in Singapore, not including options like marrying a local .. Being a Malaysian and a fresh graduate from a good university in England, does it make it any easier?

No. Get a job, then you'll get an EP. Don't get fired, and you can get PR.

probably becoming self employed may help, apply for permission to work freelance or a business in your own name. selling jewellary for example

Do you have a good business idea?

Do you have a unique product / service? We will do a start up and sponsor your EP in Singapore. You need not have investment capital. We take care of funding and co-operate the business with you.

We are in an era of entreprenuership. Starting a biz is a viable alternative to being employed.

If you have tertiary educational qualifications (e.g a degree and above) - apply for the 'Landed permanent residence' scheme - pay about US$1,000 - and get a PR in principle - which means that if you manage to find a job within a specified time or are able to settle your family here, you will be able to get PR almost immediately.

Find a job that will sponsor you under an employment pass. Once you start working at your new job for a few months, apply for PR status (w/ your new company filling out a form to "sponsor" you). Wait three months for PR form to get approved and hopefully you can become a PR!

Your attention to detail as an accountant is scary. Seeing the post you replied to is over 5 years old. :o
