Relocate to Singapore

Hi Friends,

This is Palani typical middle class Indian (Tamil) who works in UAE and have planned to relocate to Singapore under short term visit pass.I am a post graduate in Business Administration (MBA) and have 4+ years of experience in low profile job that includes Admin Assistant for 3 years in India and presently working as an Import/Export Assistant  for 1.5 years in UAE and have below doubts to ask you before I relocate.

Is it a good idea to move to Singapore in visit pass to seek employment?..If so can I get visa with 89 days validity (as far as i know I can't stay over)??

How is the opportunities in Singapore in Export/Import or Freight Forwarding field??.Do they prefer locally experienced?

and lastly,I am least bothered about my Visa type, I am ok with whether it S pass or E Pass...But will MOM deny S pass only for the sake of having MBA with experience, will the give preference to E pass over S pass in this scenario??

Thank you,

Palani....

Please do not post the same message multiple times on the forum. I have requested the other one to be removed.

Yes, it is a very good idea - your chances for interview invitations are many times higher when you are in the country and have a local address and phone number.
As far as I know, as an Indian you will get 30 days, which can be extended (visit ICA at least a week before expiry for this!) up to 89 days if you have a good reason for it.

Sorry, not my industry, so I cannot comment.
But of course local candidates are preferred and must even be hired preferentially by law.

With an MBA and >4 years work experience, you are a typical EP candidate. S-Pass is for lower skilled (and paid) jobs. Even if you are offered a low-class job, you will not get a visa because MoM wants to prevent foreigners coming in below their value and thus distorting the market for the locals.

Hi can I get e pass with out employer approval.

You cannot apply for EPass directly. Only the employer or their authorized agent can apply. Approval of EPass is by the MoM

Hi can anybody clear my doubts,

Can any employer provide free e pass visa work permit and airteket, accommodation and food.

Can you give such company name in Singapore.

Thanks
Uday

Any employer in Singapore hiring a foreigner must provide the Employment Pass (EP) free of charge.
Whether they provide free airtickets and accommodation is up to negotiation, but not very common. I have never heard of a company providing free food.

Hi please provide me the details

The way how to find out the job in Singapore.

Job site or employer or job consultancy.

You can use all way.
Register in online job sites and consultants.
Directly apply through employer website or email the cv.

Which "details" do you mean?
I cannot tell you the companies' compensation policies, because I know neither them nor your negotiation power.
And about finding a job in Singapore, please read the many posts and threads already present on this forum - the topic is discussed several times a week!
