Working in Singapore

Singapore is a very popular destination for expatriates.
As we’ve just seen, the main advantage is certainly the good quality of life. Career opportunities and prospects for advancement are also plentiful in Singapore, prompting many foreigners to settle here. A prosperous, developed economy is reassuring and attractive! One of the advantages that many expatriates dream of is the level of remuneration. Salaries are high, although the cost of living is also following the same trend.

You need a work permit or work pass to practice your profession. The employer takes care of the administrative formalities.

Schooling in Singapore

Children can attend local, international or French schools. All international schools charge fees. Foreigners pay more than locals.

Accommodation in Singapore

Due to the sheer size of the city-state, Singapore has seen housing prices soar in recent years. To prevent real estate speculation, the government has intervened and introduced a series of measures to regulate prices. Housing has become a little cheaper, but prices are still as high as in Paris.

There are 3 types of accommodation:

  • HDBs: low-cost public housing (the equivalent of our HLMs), where the vast majority of Singaporeans live.
  • Condominiums: on average 50% more expensive than HDBs, more standardized, private residence with the following amenities: janitor, pool, gym, playground, etc. This is the type of accommodation most expatriates choose.
  • Detached or semi-detached houses: they’re rare in such a small area, and therefore very, very expensive! Foreigners are not allowed to buy single-family homes.

Tip: don’t reserve a definitive home from a distance, prefer a physical visit first.

Driving in Singapore

If your stay does not exceed 12 months, you can use your international permit, accompanied by a valid national permit and its prior translation into English, at the embassy.
Driving is on the left, priority is on the right. The speed limit is 50/60 km/h in built-up areas, 70 km/h on roads and 80-90 km/h on freeways.
