Customer Question

Hi, I have been offered a temporary job in Singapore(6 months) and wondered if I required a visa coming from the UK

Yes you need a work pass. Here are the details from the Ministry of Manpower of Singapore What you get paid and the length of work will determine which type of pasta you need. Even working for a couple of months needs a pass of some description. Does that answer the question?Can I answer any specific points arising from this?
