Last I heard, they are short on staff and are working with the local ministry of labour. The ministry wants them to go after the locals first for obvious reasons but they believe they have exhausted all of the local resources. So I guess now it's a matter of time before the ministry allow them to start calling up expats. fingers crossed

Thank you! And best of luck for those who are also waiting for an email haha.

Cheers!
Why frozen ATPL with 4200TT? Most jurisdictions would 'unfreeze' at 1500 hours?

Brazilian legislation requires at least 1500h, but 250 of those must be logged as PIC (or 500h as "supervised pilot in command"). All my professional flying time is logged as SIC (800 as LJ35 FO, 3400 on the 737). So what many of us do here in Brazil is log those hours under supervision during our upgrade to captain, when flying with an instructor. Other than that, I would need to pay for roughly 100h on a Cessna in a Flight School in order to get the License

Hey all,
Received an email last week from SIA Recruitment. I'm DEFO applicant, non PR. Applied in October '22.
Online profile Review Status has changed to 'In Review'
Have been asked to submit further documentation.
Can I ask for anyone who has been through the DEFO process lately (PR or non) to message me please. Would like to get some info on the interview and whole process please.

For those of you who have been asking about how to update your online application - I just withdrew my application and submitted a new, updated one.

Thanks in advance for any help.

You're on local terms apparently. No rent, no school no nothing and still there are many foreigners jumping over themselves to get in.

SM, think SWH was just being sarcastic. SQ have never really had expat FO salary packages, except briefly in SQC they had some on expat terms. The only folks on a full expat package were DECs who were on a 5 year renewal contract. Those were all pretty much history by 2012/13.

This job will be great for young single/folks without kids. Get some quality experience and then look for better opportunities out there. The only way to survive long term will be to adapt to the local lifestyle and live like a local. Forget any "expat" treatment/entitlement. Contrary to popular belief, they have plenty of pilots waiting to join on the terms on offer to live in one of the most expensive place on the planet.
