Foreign talent relocating from India asks if $5K per month is enough to lead comfortable lifestyle in Singapore


A foreign talent from India relocating to Singapore has asked if $5,000 is enough to lead a comfortable lifestyle in Singapore. Writing in Singapore Expats Forum, Shaunik Wadhawan said that he has been offered that amount to work as a service delivery manager in a local company.

He said that he will head to Singapore alone, but that his wife may join him later. She has friends in Singapore who will help her look for a job.


Several recruitment agencies and companies have advertised in JobsBank for the position of Service Delivery Managers, and the salary for such workers range from $3,000 to $6,000.

From 1 August 2014, under the Fair Consideration Framework (FCF) by the Ministry of Manpower (MOM), companies seeking to hire Employment Pass (EP) holders are required to post their job vacancies on Jobs Bank for at least 14 calendar days before an EP application is submitted to MOM.
