Aha!!! You are a savior for many then :)

I should have been a member of this forum when I was struggling to find a job then :wink://even though on LTVP..I am sure your guidance would have helped to find some possible solution.

I hope there is some policy w.r.t employment benefits for those on LTVP..current policy is not a level playing field for them.

Cheers

hi all,

Thanks for all of your replies.

I posted as francis cos my friend who is 38m/sg/ch is really in need of friend. If I put his hp number in, im sure the moderator will think e wrong kind of info.

Second thing, Jeren which is me, is looking to make international friends sincerely, not find a fling. My social circle is zero becos I don't pub or go out and chiong rather than those who have a perfect night life. So pls do not anyhow comment that whether my wife knows I'm posting to find friends online. My wife knows what I am doing and she supports it since we are only contacting by email.

Last thing for the moderator to know is that LTVP w/o the plus can work in singapore. Your info is wrong. I confirmed it with MOM. They said my wife can work as long as the company is willing to employ her. Only dependent pass holders cannot work. So all of the replies please go and ask properly before posting here. If you guys really do not know the rules, please dont reply. Its a misdirection for those LTVP who really needs to work.

Thank you.

If you spoke with the MOM officer like you just wrote the last paragraph, then that is the reason you got the wrong answer from them.

You really need to learn how to listen to the people you ask for information from. What you wrote is exactly bass ackwards from the facts. In fact, you didn't even call the proper ministry of the government. :roll:

http://www.ica.gov.sg/page.aspx?pageid=175

ONLY those on LTVP+ can work in Singapore on a Letter of Consent and without needing to be approved for an employment in their right. (This is exactly the same as for Dependent Pass holders)

Those only a normal LTVP MUST apply for, and be approved by, and granted an employment pass from MOM in their own right. At that time, they are NO LONGER ON AN LTVP as it will be canceled and replaced with the Employment Pass.

Those working on a Letter of Consent and on LTVP+ will continue to keep their LTVP+ or DP while working on the LoC.

If you register and then post as different people, then you have to expect to be called out when your sh*t don't jive. Anybody can use the search function to see all of your previous posts. You did it to yourself. I'd say it's time for you to get your act together.

1. I think comprehension is an issue here. LTVP holder CAN'T work unless an employer is willing to hire them and put them under EP/SPass/WP. That's what the officer would be trying to tell you. This route is a 180-degree haul-around, but not impossible and subjected to MOM approval on EP/SPass/WP application phase.

2. DP and LTVP+ holders also CAN'T work unless they get LOC from MOM to approach employers to seek employment. This route is easier because it doesn't require conversion. Just an additional piece of document on top of current DP/LTVP+.

Be nice.

if being a moderator, u can scold people in a forum then you can scold as much as you like. I'm not going to be here and let you be scolded.

Please do not tell me go what link to go to and see. Links nowadays are not to be trusted. Links and asking those officers are totally different story. ICA and MOM is 2 different govt agency. They totally do not know each other process. I asked ICA and MOM thats why they gave me 2 different opinions. Im just sharing my piece of advice. if you don't want to help the other expats here, then dont comment. I'm just sharing my experince.

I'm not going to post anything else here. If expats is really interested to share and help other foreigners to come here to stay, we can share thru email.

Er... So you are not going to let SMS be scolded then? :???:

So you don't trust the information that is published on official gahmen websites? :???:

Do you have any idea how much advice the regulars on this forum have given out and continue to give out on a daily basis? [Hint: The search button is directly above this text]. If it doesn't tally with your misinterpretations of conversations with MOM, etc. then that's your problem, not ours.

OK, cheerio. Thanks for stopping by. And please do give our regards to Francis :mrgreen:
Be careful what you wish for

Hi Fliperz,

In case you are of the firm opinion (as you claim:Your info is wrong) that the information posted by members here is incorrect then I suggest please get a first hand view of things before you negate the effort of member/(s) here who have responded to your query:

I was on LTVP too. Before you get in touch with any authority, please read the LTVP letter (Terms and Conditions for LTP Card, Point 12) issued to your wife by ICA which has a big bold statement as below which should answer all your queries.

12. As holder of the Pass, you shall abide by the conditions specified in regulations
11(9), 12(7) and (9) and 14(1A) of the Immigration Regulations, where applicable.
Pass holder is not to engage in any form of paid employment or in any business,
profession or occupation in Singapore during the validity of the pass unless he is a
holder of a valid work pass issued under the Employment of Foreign Manpower Act
(Cap. 91A).

I don't think any further explanation is required. Since you quote the response of MOM officer as "my wife can work as long as the company is willing to employ her" -which means he can be employed if he/she is a
holder of a valid work pass issued under the Employment of Foreign Manpower Act
(Cap. 91A). as above.

LTVP is an immigration status that allows you to stay/live in Singapore. For employment one needs to possess a Work Pass. LTVP+ and DP too cannot work until they have an LOC.

Did you manage to transfer to a WP/EP from your LTVP?

It's not a transfer, the Employer has to apply for their WP and once approved, then the LTVP is canceled and the WP issued. When they leave the job, the WP will be canceled and they will be put on an SVP to give them the time to reapply for the LTVP or possibly will be put directly back on the LTVP (haven't done one in a long, long time).
