Today is 2011, it's been 3 years since I wrote this blog to help my fellow Filipinos. Beyond that, I don't have any intention why I started this blog. In those 3 years, there are lots of changes in Singapore with regards to foreign employment. While below suggestions will still work, it's still up to the government thru their agency, Ministy of Manpower, to approve the job applications by foreign candidates. As you all know, they are currently limiting the influx of foreign workers in the country. This will benefit their local citizens, though not a good news for foreign talents. Effective this July 2011, there are 2 new policies that will take effect, and will have huge impact on hiring foreign talents. Plus the strict immigration policy of the Philippines and Singapore.

There are various policies implemented by the Singapore government with regards to hiring foreign workers. This will directly affect us, leaving us small chance or no chance at all to land a job.

Please follow this guide with a great risk in mind. There are no guarantee for a job when you reach Singapore. Think several times before you decide and pursue your career here. Passing the immigration officer in the Philippines might be difficult, but finding a job here in Singapore is even more difficult.
This blog is a guide only, and doesn't assure you of any jobs. In the end, you're the one who will take the risk and decide what's best for you. If you have a great opportunity in the Philippines or in other country, better grab that opportunity than Singapore. Most of Filipinos coming here to look for a job are going home mostly unsuccessful. Be sure to accept that risk when you decide to come here and look for a job.

Singapore is one of the best destination for Filipinos seeking greener pastures. Top reason for working here is the higher salary compared in our country. It is located 3 hours away from the Philippines and air fare is ranging only from Php 3000 to Php 7000. Climate here is same as in our country so you don’t need to adjust.

How much can you earn here? If you are a degree holder of any course, you are entitled to earn a monthly income of SG$2000(exchange rate of SG$1=Php33.5) minimum. Salary has no limit and you can earn up to several thousands depending on your expertise and position. They have the branch of government called ‘Ministry of Manpower’ who sees to it that you are well compensated otherwise, they will not allow you to be employed. Salary also can vary depending on the company that will hire you and the degree that you have. Mostly IT personnel have the advantage of having the highest salary in all the fields. With this salary, for sure you can go back home every month.

How to go to Singapore? As mentioned earlier, air fare is ranging only from Php 3000 to Php 7000. Since Singapore is an ASEAN member country, you don’t need a visa. Passport and a plane ticket are that two things that you must have. There are 2 options that I will discuss on how to go to Singapore fast. First is by using a tourist pass. Once you are here, the immigration personnel will grant you 14 to 30 days pass to stay. In most cases, they will grant you 30 days. After that, you can ask for an extension for another 30 days for a total of almost 2 months. You can use that to look and apply for a job. Another option is by applying for a long term social visit pas or the EPEC. If you have this pass, you are allowed to stay in Singapore for a year to look and apply for a job. Applying for EPEC is online and free. However, there are only few accredited schools in the Philippines. Try this link to apply for an EPEC online CLICK HERE or visit the MOM website www.mom.gov.sg.

"Due to recent restrictions made by Philippine Immigration, all outgoing tourists are required to show invitation letter before they can go to Singapore. This is a big issue, and you must understand how to do the work around. First and foremost, if you have friends or relatives here in Singapore, ask for the invitation letter. It must be authenticated and stamped by our Philippine Embassy here in Singapore. And you have to pay $42 for it. With this letter, 100% the immigration won't question you. However, for those who don't have anyone who can give the letter, this is a big issue. It doesn't mean that if you don't have the letter, you can't come here to Singapore. You still have the chance I believe if you will follow my suggestion below.

Book a 2 way ticket with an interval of 3 to 5 days only. Why? Because the immigration will question you if you have more than a week of interval in your ticket. Take note also that in most cases, return tickets are never used. You won't know when are you coming back plus you have to rebook your flight if you want to extend your 30 days visit pass here. Bear in mind that you will go out as tourist, so you have pretend yourself to be a tourist. Don't ever show them your EPEC or In Principle Agreement if you have. They won't honor it, because the Singapore government issued it to you. I never guarantee any success rate on this scenario, but at least I give you a hint on how to do it. I am positive it will work..:-) Just keep your fingers crossed...."

How to apply jobs? Here in Singapore, jobs are posted 95% online. T"here are various web sites that you can check for available jobs. CLICK HERE to view available jobs. You may try visiting those sites and check if you're in demand here. All you need is a resume with attached photo. Although application is done online, you need to be here before you start emailing them or it will be wasted. They will entertain applicant who are in Singapore only.

How to work in Singapore? Unlike other countries, you are not binded by contract once you are working. You will receive same privileges and benefits as the local personnel. Probationary period is ranging from 3 months up to 6 months before you become a regular employee. There are different work passes that you can have depending on the salary. S Pass is given for workers with salary of SG$2000 up to SG$2999 while E Pass is given for workers with salary of SG$3000 upward.

Where to stay? How much is the cost of living? Etc…. I know you still have lots of questions. If you’re interested, proceed to part 2.

    to the nurse; as i've said, degree holder here has a minimum salary of $1800. since you are with an agency, syempre may commission sila. if you dont want to waste time looking for job, grab the opportunity and while you are here, saka ka na lumipat sa ibang company na gusto mo at mag demand ng mas malaking salary.

    hello. once your epec is approved. you have the reference# and the certificate paper. how do you use it once there. do you have to go to mom office to "activate" it when nearing 30 days?

  13. chille  

    January 14, 2008 at 11:21 PM

    Hi... just read your ideas. very useful... may i ask regarding the EPEC requirements? I graduated from a school not listed under the accredited schools. I am a CPA and have already rendered 3 years in my field. Is there any possibility that I can be accepted for any entry-level jobs related to my profession in Singapore? Would my school pose any harm in applying for EPEC?

  14. Author  

    January 15, 2008 at 12:14 AM

    hi...if you enter here with EPEC, you must go to ICA(Immigration) before your 30 days expires. they will then give you another 2 months to provide a medical certificate. i advice you to consume the 2 months period before providing a certificate. you may find a work by then. be sure about your work because your EPEC status will be revoked upon having the work pass.

  15. Author  

    January 15, 2008 at 12:16 AM

    hi chille...i also came here without having an EPEC. actually i was rejected twice, my school is not on the list. lakasan lang ng loob, i came here and luckily i found a job after a week. school is not an issue as long as you have a nice work experience.

  16. little mac  

    January 15, 2008 at 12:47 AM

    do you have to possess the physical epec certificate when going to ICA. i only have the reference number. it was approved last november 07 but until now i haven't received the mail even though my address is accurate. i already sent an email to MOM asking for the status of the epec certificate delivery but i haven't received any response after 5 days. tough luck. this is the 2nd type of delay. the 1st one is the diploma english translation which caused me to wait for weeks and apply twice before being accepted. thanks.

  17. Author  

    January 15, 2008 at 12:57 AM

    little mac....the EPEC number is very important. since you already mail them but they didnt response, i suggest you to go to ICA once you arrived here and tell them that you didnt receive the mail. For sure they will ask you your EPEC number and i think that is enough...i guess

  18. little mac  

    January 15, 2008 at 1:19 AM

    i hope that's the case. according to the epec terms and conditions wait for the copy prior to leaving. i think it was lost in our ph post office. it's not a registered mail according to friends who got it in just a week. btw can you do the medical here in ph or it should be in sg. are they strict in this medical thingie like you shouldn't have past ailments or is it more on communicable diseases.

    yes...pwede ka dito mag apply. remember, meron kang 2 months to stay here kahit wala kang EPEC. EPEC processing kung andito ka could take only a month.

  22. little mac  

    January 16, 2008 at 1:48 AM

    if you only have the epec reference# and was allowed to stay for 1 year, what will you show to the police in case they ask for docs and your passport is more than 30 days.

I already have a ticket to singpore and i'll be leaving on february 25th to look for a work there, i'm just afraid to take risk because i'm not an I.T. graduate, I had experience working as Recruitment asst and a call center rep., with these experience I had do you think i'll be able to secure a job there..I only have 30 days to look for job..thank you..I'll be very grateful for your response.

    Thank you for your application of the Employment Pass Eligibility Certificate (EPEC).

    Your application has been rejected as you have not met the EPEC guidelines. The processing criteria for an Employment Pass Eligibility Certificate (EPEC) is premised on the applicant's working experience and educational qualifications. Unless you have higher educational qualifications or more extensive work experience, please do not submit another application or appeal.

    However, you can still continue with your job search in Singapore and upon securing an offer by the employer, he would be able to apply for an Employment Pass for you.

    Hi po sa lahat!!! As the author said, may new ruling po ang POEA sa mga OFW na lumalabas sa Pilipinas and Singapore will be included in that.

    It was even published sa Straight Times (local newspaper here) about the new rule. So bka magka issue p. Pero medyo magulo p rin ung new Memo ng POEA, madami pang loop holes. Pero let us wait and see. Sayang nga lng ung opportunity n binibigay ng Singapore sa mga Pinoy here. Baka ayawan n nila tyo kasi mas mapapahirap pa ang processing ng documents kapag Pinoy ang kinuha nila.

    Basahin nyo po ito!!!

    Department of Labor and Employment
    News Article
    New rules on OFW hiring issued
    Saturday, January 19, 2008
    Stricter rules on direct hiring of OFW was issued recently by the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration. The rules
    which takes effect on January 15, 2008 allows direct hiring of OFWs by foreign employers only upon approval by the
    Secretary of Labor and subject to screening of employers and employment contract verification by the Labor Attaché or
    the Philippine Embassy.
    Direct hiring may be allowed only for members of the diplomatic corps and of international organizations, government
    officials of ministerial level, and employers who are hiring on one-time or trial basis. The number of employees to be hired
    directly shall not exceed 5.
    Employers will likewise comply with stricter documentation and processing requirements which include the posting of
    repatriation bond in the amount of US$5000 per employee to guarantee the repatriation of the worker or of his remains, in
    the event of death, and performance bond of US$3000 per employee to guarantee payment of the employee's salary for
    the duration of the employment contract. The bonds should be secured from local bonding companies. They will also
    provide the employees with health and medical insurance.
    Employers who do not want to comply with the bonding and insurance requirements or with the standard employment
    contract will not be allowed to hire OFWs directly. But they may hire thru licensed placement agencies which are willing to
    assume responsibilities over the employees, including payment of salaries and other employment benefits.
    DOLE Secretary and POEA Board Chairman Arturo Brion announced that the adoption of a stricter policy on direct hires is
    aimed at strengthening the protection mechanisms for the OFWs.
    OFWs with employment contracts and work visas issued after January 15, 2008 will be covered by the new guidelines. The
    new guidelines for direct hiring is posted at the POEA website (www.poea.gov.ph).

    hi to everyone! Hiring of Filipinos is no longer limited to 5per employer. i verified that sa poea. for details and if you want to be updated regarding this matter, visit www.poea.gov.ph and enter forum.

    Author, FreeSpirit- Thks for highlighting the concern on the new ruling for direct hires. I am set to begin work in SG soon, but now this guideline! I don't yet know how my employer will react. And I waited 3 yrs to get this opportunity. Wow! Seems like our gov't needs to learn how to phase in these new rulings as they just create immediate confusion.

    hi...ang isang bahay dito or whole unit eh tinatawag na HDB or FLAT. sa isang flat, may master bedroom(with CR inside) at kung ilang common room(just room only). pag 2+1, it means isang bahay na may 2 rooms(master and common room) then may sala set. pag 3+1, 3 rooms(a master and 2 common rooms) at sala set.

I'm 39 yrs. old at tagal na stop work, sa tingin mo I can still be hired? Regarding the ticket, pwede ba agad ipabook ang ticket for one month(March 1, arrival; March 30, departure)? Hanggang 10k lang po ba dadalhing pocket money sa airport? Salamat po..

    hi anonymous....from the start, SG dollar ang nilagay ko sa blog ko. i even made a conversion to Php29. it so happen that ofwguide.com publish my article sa site nila, kaso instead na SG dollar ilagay, USD nalagay nila. i already emailed the author to make necessary ammendments sa post nila. i dont want to mislead anyone, makatulong lang ang hangad ko thru correct informations.

    --kung tourist ka, sometimes hinahanapan ng immigration ng show money. better na may dala ka talaga. about food and rentals, visit my the 3rd part of my acticle or visit faqinsingapore.blogspot.com

    --age doesn't matter here. pwede ka na magpabook ng 30 days return tiket. about money, bring as much as you can na budget for 2 months.

    --walng season ang hiring dito

    --if you apply online once you are still there, maliit chance mo na kontakin nila maliban kung talagang magaling ka. mostly kasi, tinatawagan nila thru phone ang applicant. they will notice na wala ka singapore phone number

    --PR means permanent resident. mga foreign national yon na nakastay dito ng at least 6 months then na grant na PR status. apply ka lang kahit may ganyng sign. wala mawawala sayo kung mag send ka ng email sa kanila. malay mo, magbago isip nila at i hire ang foreigner na gaya mo

    Hi! Am also working here in Sg. But believe me, its not easy to look for a job here. No self denial...we need to face and tell the fact that applying work here is risky. If you are brave enough to face the consequences, go then. But if you have worries...better to stay at where you are. Some good things never happen to all. Be aware that sometimes, you need to suffer and prepare yourself for rejections. We are foreigners here and we cannot just act what we used to like we were in Pinas.
    My advice; BE BRAVE!

    Ok lang naman na 1 month ticket mo. basta you can answer the immigration officer sa mga tanung nya o better have a show money para sigurado.

    hi anonymous...S pass processing takes 1 wk to 3 wks. in your case, you better follow up with the agency if the company is still hiring you. if they badly need your service, they will expedite all the processes. ano company ba?

    hi, ako ung nag leave ng comment regarding my s pass. Surbana Corporation ang name ng company na papasukan ko sana sa Singapore. What do you think? Dapat bang hindi na ko umasa na makaalis pa ko? I waited for this oppurtunity kc i really wanted to work in Singapore talaga. Nagresign pa nmn ako sa job ko d2 sa pinas just to pursue my ambition to work in Singapore aside of course sa ganda ng salary na marrcv ko if I work there. Thanks anyway for your advice. Im waiting for your comment on this matter too.

    Mahirap kumuha ng EPEC ngayun. Ng mass rejection yata sila sa dami na ng foreigners na gusto kumuha nito. I was rejected twice even though i came from accredited University. Pero, lakasan lang ng loob yan, i will try my luck this month, punta ako dyan.

    hi kenji,

    since i first post my blog, siguro may mga changes nga pero di naman ganon kalaki. like sa singapore dollar, last january eh around 30 lang sya pero ngayon 33 na and going stronger pa. regarding naman sa plane tiket, mas maganda siguro kung bumisita ka sa mga website ng pal, cebu pacific or tiger airways then try mo mag book sa date na gusto. at least don, makakasiguro ka ng exact amount. remember na pag nagpabook k ng mas maaga, masa mura pa sya. about sa cost of living, medyo tumaas siguro ng konti. though may mga 10 dollar per day pa na transient lodging house, hahanapin mo na talaga. the rest ang mura na eh 13 per day. SG dollar yon ha. regarding sa food at transpo expenses, ganon pa rin naman. walang masyadong pagbabago. for a month, siguro budget ka ng 30K para safe. opinyon ko lang po ito, pwede kayo magtanong sa iba kung gusto nyo.

    again, sobrang dali pumunta dito pero may kahirapan din ang maghanap ng trabaho. lakasan ng loob at kaylangan makipagkumpetensya ka sa mga kalaban mo..mostly eh mga pinoy rin naman. goodluck! no guts no glory...

    hi anonymous....kung tourist ka, up to 30 days ang max na ibibigay sayo. pero dahil nga minsan, may mga di nakakalusot, 14 days lng minsan binibigay s kanila pero madalang yon. to be safe, try to buy round trip ticket for 3 weeks.

    sa DE, ok lang ilagay ang sister mo. anyway, tourist ka naman at pag tinanong ka saan ka titira, sabihin mo sa sister mo.

    Just a little caution lang sa mga gustong pumunta ngayong panahon na to. There is a recession in developed countries in Europe, US and Japan, and this has an impact on the business climate here in Singapore. According to Singapore PM's message on National Day, prepare for rough times ahead. I suggest that you take a side trip sa mga business news din para malaman kung ano na ang hiring environment dito. However, shipping and services has nonstop hiring. thanks.

    **jepipie..may mga nurse at hospital staff din dto kaya lang di ganon kadami ang demand nila. maliit lng kasi na bansa ito tsaka ang job na yan eh dominated ng locals nila at mga malay. im not discouraging you, try mo rin. im just giving you advice. hawak mo pa rin ang swerte mo.

    **hi vimin..yes tama ka. all that is written here are information only which is not enough kung desidido nyo pumunta dito. you also need to do your research para sigurado kayo sa pupuntahan nyo. singapore is not in good shape right now due to recession. even in our company, baka magbawas sila ng tao this year end if the economy will get worst. plan wisely.

    and also, how much should one bring to Singapore for a 30 day stay to look for a job?

    thank you very much! You help a lot of Filipino people who plan to work abroad. keep it up!

    hi cassandra. first of all, pardon me because i don't have news about jobs for pharmacist like you. the best thing you can do is go to the jobsites directly and search if any jobs available for you. recession is also a factor, lots of singaporeans are jobless and still layoff's are ongoing. base on my experience, they never entertain job applicants kung nasa ibang country like pinas. you can only have chance to be interviewed kung andito ka. its up to you if you want to try your luck here. its risky but its worth the risk.
