Executive Summary:

Over the years, the team at IASG have proven successful at assisting expats from around the world resettle in Singapore as a permanent resident. We are incredibly proud to help change and improve the lives of all our clients by helping them navigate the minefield of the PR application process, from first consultation all the way to the security of achieving PR status.

Finance professional Miguel Mateo, who is Cuban in origin, came to Singapore after spending XX years as a professional in Japan. While in Japan, Miguel married a Japanese, and with 3 children, Miguel was transferred to Singapore, where he soon feel in love with the efficiencies and convenience in place.


After doing some research and speaking with fellow expats, Miguel was not confident on his chances of application considering his length of stay in Singapore (less than 1 year), age, ethnic background, as well as the industry he is in, which is quite saturated.

Additionally, with a Japanese wife and young children, he is also aware that there will be some quota issues that may not be favourable toward him.

When looking through ICA’s website, Miguel realized that he will not be able to pull together the vast documentation requirements and coupled with a lack of policy knowledge, he decided he needed professional help as he is serious about attaining PR.

How IASG helped : As with how IASG approach all cases, we invited Miguel down for a free consultation to understand his profile in depth. During the session, we shared with Miguel the various government metrics used that is relevant to a strong PR application. We did a point by point analysis to benchmark Miguel’s merits and advise what the immediate items we can help with. We also assured him that we will take over all the paperwork and documenting so that he can focus on his career. With this hand-holding approach, Miguel was able to approach his application in an easy, structured, and stress-free manner.
