Grew up in Sg, higher chances?

Hi all,

This forum has been very helpful! And i truly appreciate the efforts of those actively replying enquiries.😊

So, I grew up and studied in sg from Kinder up til secondary school(N-levels) and only completed my Bachelor’s degree in Manila. I used to be a DP holder, under my dad, but it expired and I couldn’t renew anymore since I turned 21. I am 22 this year.  Ever since my early secondary school days up until my DP expired, I would work part time in retail stores. Now, I am looking for a full time job, with a company who wants to hire me, they also have quota for hiring s-pass.

I’d just like to ask, if my chances for applying S-pass will be higher because of my background(education and previous DP holder) in Sg? I tried the SAT evaluation, and stated that i’m not eligible for s-pass.

To answer your above questions:

There is no such favour if in past you had studied play group or Nursery here. Unless you had studied graduation in local university then it might help you to get a job or apply TEP.
Secondly, if your SIT assessment shows that you are not eligible then no point applying S pass, system will reject in a day or two. Try to work out which part of the assessment is not matching the eligibility criteria and employer should fill that gap if it’s related to salary matter or S pass quota related. Good luck

Hi!

Thank you so much for your reply. Yes, i tried increasing the salary, and apparently it had to be above the minimum salary indication. I might have to talk to my employer about that.

Again, thank you so much! Hope all is well with everyone!

There might also be another side to your story (although you didn't mention anything about this):
If you remained on DP for all these years to avoid National (Military) Service, e.g. as son of a citizen or PR, then your chances of getting any work pass might be Zero - because the Singapore authorities do not like such evasion of public duties.
Hopefully this is not the case for you!
