Hi All,
I am Mohanasundaram from Bangalore having 8+ experience in Java/J2EE Technologies. I am planning to get a Job in Singapore and settle there. Please help me to understand the below items.

1. Currently I don't have any offers from Singapore, Is it fine to move there first and try for an opportunity? What kind of Visa should I go for in this case?
2. Is there any consultancy from India help us to get a job in Singapore? Please share the genuine consultancy details or links.
3. What is the average salary we can get for 8+ exp?
4. How about the cost of living for a family?

Kindly provide your ideas or suggest the better option.


Regards,
Mohan.

I'm not from Singapore but I do know some hard working colleagues who live there.

1. Currently I don't have any offers from Singapore, Is it fine to move there first and try for an opportunity? What kind of Visa should I go for in this case?



I'd rather not risk that. I'm not aware of a VISA that would specifically allow you to squat in Singapore while looking for a job offer.

2. Is there any consultancy from India help us to get a job in Singapore? Please share the genuine consultancy details or links.



There are many. They are all genuine Whether they intend to help you out is another question.

3. What is the average salary we can get for 8+ exp?



There is no average in any line of work. You are paid by your skill. The more you know, the more you are paid.

4. How about the cost of living for a family?



It is a tad expensive. I've been there and the cost of rent is high. Apartments are leased by the government for X years (99 the last time I checked) if you're looking to buy one. I'm unaware of current monthly rates. The private apartments are more expensive but come equipped with tennis courts and other luxuries. Travelling by cab is expensive. Their train systems are cheap and are on time. Most workers use trains / buses to travel to work. Owing a car is also expensive (at least the last time I asked about it, there was a lottery system to even get one).

 
Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work - Edison. Tiny ad:
