In the past few years, Singapore has seen an increasing number of foreigners become permanent residents. While there are thousands of applicants every year, every applicant goes through a different application process.
The Singapore Permanent Residence (PR) application can be applied by the applicant, along with his/her spouse and unmarried children under the age of 21.
With the introduction of a variety of schemes, many foreigners with diverse backgrounds have chosen to settle down and set up home in Singapore. Considered to be one of the most developed and economically stable countries in the world, one can understand the allure of calling Singapore home.
While most foreigners tend to only apply for PR after working in Singapore for a few years , there are other avenues to obtaining a Singapore PR status.
Here is an overview of the various schemes through which people can apply for PR in Singapore.
1. Professionals/Technical Personnel & Skilled Worker scheme (“PTS scheme”)
2. Global Investor Programme scheme (“GIP scheme”)
3. Foreign Artistic Talent scheme (“ForArts scheme”)
