It is a well known fact that employers in Singapore favour employing permanent residents, compared to foreign candidates. As a permanent resident, you will experience better job stability and recruitment priority.

Along with the career flexibility and stability, you will also be able to enjoy various perks of being a permanent resident, such as healthcare and education subsidies, affordable housing, priority for various loans, and other financial benefits provided under Singapore’s Central Provident Fund (CPF) scheme.

Singapore PR Disadvantages

It is important for you to note that when you become a permanent resident of Singapore, there will be certain conditions that you must adhere to.

If you have a son who is under the age of 18 and also a PR holder, he will be required to complete his national service by serving in the military, civil defence or police force for 2 years when he turns 18.

Subsequent to the 2 years of national service, he will need to attend 40 days of Operationally Ready National Service every year until he completes 10 cycles of re-service.

However, if your son chooses to give up his PR status, he will not be required perform the 2 years of national service.

Having said all that, becoming an SPR will give you the chance to live, work and settle down in a safe and stable country that you can call home.
