Online Forex Trader - wants to relocate to Singapore

Postby Jolichr » Sun, 01 Sep 2013 11:53 am

Dear All,
I am an Indonesian. I'm working as an online forex trader and I want to live in Singapore. I've been looking for the requirements to get a Working Visa or a PR that suits my condition but I haven't find one. I cannot get a Working Visa because I don't have an employer. And I cannot apply PR as an investor because I do not have any business experiences.

Could anybody help me with my problem, please?

Thanks for your help.

Regards,
Jolichr

How much money are you making a year? There's always a way for PR, if you're making in the millions a year. I'm guessing you're not.

If you can prove, via your Indonesian tax returns, that you are earning substantial amounts of money through your trading activities, and that you have been doing this successfully for some time (ie - at least 3 years of tax returns showing good earnings) then there might be a way for you to do the same thing in Singapore.

But, if you are not earning much, or taking a loss, or have only been doing this for a short period of time, there will be no practical way for you to come to Singapore..
