S pass holders visas is the minimum tier for employment pass you need to be eligible for PR. Note you need to have the right employment pass from your companies first.

Not sure if you are considered as one of the above groups considered by Singapore’s authorities?
If you are interested to be one of the many new Singapore permanent residents who are approved yearly, but not sure about whether you are eligible, or confused about any part of your applications eligibility criteria conditions, then you need to contact us via our contact form to find out. Our company can advise you on that part.
Why do so many customers always like to find us for our consultancy for their PR application in Singapore? This is why that is the case.
If you are similar to our other customers who look for our relocation and immigration services, you are looking to start a new life and sink roots in Singapore. Maybe you want to enjoy the privileges that our PR offers once approved, while still having the flexibility of keeping your current citizenship.
The process of PR application in Singapore can be complicated and confusing. Note some common reasons for permanent residence application rejection:
First of all, insufficient details and info document for your Singapore PR status and incomplete forms are common reasons. Even one seemingly small mistake or detail within your application form will usually get a flat out decline for your PR application in Singapore.
Constant rejections are what many people who are not truly thorough with their submissions experience. This is because the PR application approval process is usually more complex than it seems on paper.
Secondly, the government’s Immigration Checkpoints Authority (ICA) of the government of Singapore, has strictly cut down the number of PRs approved and given out yearly by a lot – 50 per cent compared to history. If you are a citizen from countries and regions other than Malaysia, it can appear to be harder to succeed.
Therefore, if your application form does not strongly show 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 Singapore permanent residents in our society this year or anytime soon. Society contributions increase your chances.
Thirdly, many of our PR applicant candidates in Singapore who apply through our agency are also busy professionals with their careers position and individuals who do not have the time and energy in reality to go through the tedious and complex efforts required to file a PR application in Singapore.
Also, the amount of paperwork documents, document list and research needed when applying to become Singapore permanent residents can be truly overwhelming and a turn off for most customers to do PR application on their own! It also feels akin to an additional full time job to our customers when they look for the process online and try to do their applications themselves!
