Why do so many Singapore permanent residents to-be always like to find us for our consultancy for their PR application in Singapore? This is exactly why that is the case.
If you are similar to our other customers who look for our relocation services, you are looking to start a new life and sink roots in Singapore. Perhaps, you want to enjoy the benefits (stay in Singapore, better property loans, work opportunities in Asia, companies, Central Provident Fund, healthcare) our country offers, while still having the benefits of keeping your current country citizenship.
The process can be complicated and confusing. Note some common reasons for permanent residence application rejection:
Firstly, insufficient details and info documents for your Singapore PR status and incomplete forms are common reasons. Even one seemingly small mistake within your PR application form will usually get a rejection for your application.
A number of constant rejection is what people who are not thorough experience. The permanent resident application approval process in Singapore to become a Singapore PR is usually more complex in reality.
Secondly, the government of Singapore Immigration Checkpoints Authority (ICA) of the government of Singapore, has reduced number of person and applicants approved yearly after 2008 by a lot – 50 per cent compared to history statistics – thousands. If you are citizens from regions other than Malaysia citizenship or demographics, your application can appear to be harder.
If your application form does not demonstrate lots of benefits, contributions and commitment you provide and basically being an asset to Singapore society, it will be declined and you will be unable to become one of the new 30 000 yearly Singapore PR in our country. Society contributions and engagements increase your chances.
Thirdly, most of our Singapore PR applicant candidates who go through our agency are also busy professionals and are individuals who do not have the time and energy to go through the tedious and complex efforts required.
The amount of paperwork and research needed when applying to become Singapore PR can be truly overwhelming and a turn off for most to do PR application on their own! Applications also feel like an extra full time job to our customers when they try to do it themselves!
