As J is being transferred to S’pore with his company, he’ll enter with an employment pass sponsored by the firm.

I, on the other hand, am entering merely as the spouse, and will be there on a dependent’s pass. This is basically a housewife visa – I won’t be allowed to work unless a local company writes me a letter of consent.

Yet… I’ve been asked to supply my birth certificate (fair enough) and my degree certificate (preferably from a “well-established” university).

I *really* hope this is a belt & braces approach from J’s company rather than a Ministry of Manpower (so Orwellian!) requirement.

I can’t see my ability to run Southern blots being all that useful when it comes to getting sozzled on gin at lunchtimes and ordering around the staff.
