Working pass approved...what's next?

Hi Kabayans,

I have a question and might sound stupid to some but I need some guidance on what's the best thing to do in my situation. Na approved na yung Epass ko and now, I am not sure if I have to go to POEA and register as OFW or just go to SG as tourist and will process everything from there. My employer wants me to be in SG and start working in a week (pwede mag render muna? lol) and I am not sure if I can secure my exit clearance if I will go thru POEA registration - also, banned ba ang direct hires to SG? I read in some post here that it's easier to go to SG as tourist and just present my IPA sa IO once I landed in SG. I appreciate your help, please let me know your thoughts?

P.S. Any recommendation for accommodation? I prefer shared unit since I read here that leasing a condo will cost a lot. Thanks! :smile:



  • Hello! happy new year! @urwingman
    What you've read is definitely easier unless you have enough time and energy to carry the burden of going through the ideal path (poea cheverlu), I would suggest that you do it. Your choice. :)

    Hanap ka besh dito http://pinoysg.net/categories/accommodations and sa mga fb pinoy rental groups. Madaming available for rent actually.
  • @goblinsbride Thanks for the insight! Tourist nalang mas madali.

    @JuanDeLaCruz Thank you, bro!

    Sharing my exp. Nkaalis ako sa PH as tourist before nun daming tanong bago ako nkapasok..chineck pa ID ko pero gabi byahe ko so its safe at d twagin sa office nmin kung empleyado pako from my ex-company so pgdating ko sa SG sabi ko sa IO I have my IPA at the luggage ayun wla ng tanong2 pinapasok ako. After that prinocess ko na yung mga papers ko dito. Congrats!
  • Hello mga kabayan! isa din ako tulad ni @urwingman na may approved IPA at Pass from MoM. Sa ngayon ay nasa proseso na ako ng pag aayos ng papeles (OEC) d2 sa Pinas.. Ang kaso ay nung nag punta ako sa POEA ay sinabi sa akin na mag hanap ako ng 3rd party agency na mag asikaso ng papeles para sa akin. Problema ay mukhang matagal ang processing at bka di na umabot sa commence date ko diyan sa Singapore, 2nd week or March. Hingi sana ako sa inyo ng advice kung itutuloy ko ba transactions ko sa 3rd party agency or mag tourist nlang ako tulad ni bro urwingman at diyan nalang asikasuhin ung papers ko? salamat ng madami. :smile:
  • Sa totoo lang, para skn pnkamadali pa rin ung magpanggap na tourist. Ang challenge lang ay kung pano lumagpas sa imig IO ng pinas. Napakasimple ng process dito sa sg. kumpara sa pinas napakacomplicated, paiba2 pa dpende sa makakausap mo.
  • Totoo, medyo sugal yung paglabas ng Pinas as tourist dahil sa higpit ng immig. Pero yun pinaka-madali dahil ang hassle ng OEC processing sa Pinas.

    If medyo malakas loob mo (and may extra money ka to spend), try mo muna lumipad sa SG as tourist at dito mo nalang asikasuhin (don't forget yung mga advice about answering immig questions). Kung malasin man, saka mo ituloy yung processing sa Pinas.
  • thanks @maya, baka mag tourist na lang din ako at makipag sapalaran sa IO :smiley: .. Di ko din maintindihan anu reason ng POEA at ayaw nila iprocess ang mga direct hire sa ngayon. Siguo ay dahil sa issue sa Kuwait, mga maltreated natin na kabayan dun.
  • @boy_abang - wag kanang magdalawang isip. dumirecho kana dito. isang buwan naghintay pinsan ko, although naprocess naman sha as direct hire last year. Good luck sa IO!
