If you are a rich US citizen, you can buy the citizenship. How much , something like 2.5 million UsD, I think..

Achertontus posted Looking for a job on the Singapore forum:
Hi friends! I am a 31yo planning to move from Belgium to Singapore for work experience. My girlfriend is native Singaporean, and we plan to work there for 2 years for then to move permanently to Belgium. Having only a Tech diploma I find it hard to find a job that provides a visa. So I've come here for advice, information and hopefully a job offer! Thanks in advance!

A writer from the Associated Press is interested in talking to people who decide to retire abroad for reasons related to affordable health care. He is also interested to hear about other reasons why you chose to retire abroad. If you would be interested to speak with him and possibly be written about in his article, please send an email to Joshua Wood at:

tbahder replied to the thread Open Bank Account Without Work Permit? on the Singapore forum:

I am currently living in the US and I want to open a savings account in DSB bank or OCBC bank in Singapore. Some of the bank web sites say that I must have the following: Employment pass issued by the Ministry of Manpower (MOM) of Singapore or The In-Principle Approval Letter issued by the Ministry of Manpower (MOM) of Singapore. I have neither of these documents. However, I plan to travel to Singapore in June 2014. Any suggestions on how I can open my savings account? Thanks.

Jabx, Thank you for the great help with the info on opening an account. I will do as you suggested--bring some utility bills.
Jabx replied most recently with:
I forget what the minimum deposit is to open a savings account - probably SGD 100 or 200. Perhaps their website will have the info. I just hit their ATM with my US debit card and handed back the cash to make the initial deposit. I wired more $ later. An original utility bill (water, power, not cable or phone) with your name on it is good to have in your kit.

CaroLineCL initially posted:
Hi guys, I am relatively new in SG and have been looking for a job for 3 months now. I've sent out around 40 applications but except for 2 rejections nothing came back. Am I doing sth wrong? How do you apply for jobs here? Unfortunately on all the job boards you only find a button to apply, and only rarely a concrete contact person you can e-mail. I have the impression my applications all wander into a huge black hole. TIA, everyone!
marcan480 replied most recently with:
Well first of all I find it rude of the remaining 38 companies who did not even have the decency to send a reaction/rejection. Unless an application is really rubbish I always react. But it it right that many foreigners come to Singapore, perhaps you should apply more aimed directly to companies or to apply in line with your education/experience/skills. IT really depends on what these are, if you have a financial or IT background there might be chances, if you studied history or psychology it might be more difficult.
Sweetpants replied most recently with:
Lots of foreigners are trying their luck here. If you do not have special skills in a relevant and progressive industry, you must be willing to go down in salary or try those lower end jobs only. You are fighting against many from the surrounding regions like Indians, Philipinos, Chinese etc.

Hi, We are an Australian couple living in Singapore looking to adopt, and fulfil the Australian Government's criteria for adoption. We are hoping to do a private intercountry adoption, but have also started the HSR process to be eligible to adopt in Singapore too. As we are a de facto couple (not married, but together for 8+ years), we are finding it hard to get information on countries that allow de factos to adopt. We know there is the possibility for one of us to adopt as a single parent, but would like to avoid this. Does anyone know of any countries that are accepting of unmarried couples? Have any Australian couples out there recently adopted that can shed light on this? I've had a good look through the forums, but can't find any appropriate info. Many thanks in advance for your help!
