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.

Managing Director and Engineering Sales professional M Abdul, who is Indian in origin, came to Singapore in 2006, after spending 8 years as a professional in India and Saudi Arabia. In Singapore, having been in the employ of several Engineering firms, he learnt the trade and found the efficiencies and convenience of infrastructure in place to finally set up his own company.


Challenges:

While on his first job in Singapore in 2006, Mr Abdul grew to love the country, having seen the efficiencies of how business ran and robust work ethic and culture that were aligned to his values. This prompted him to make an early decision to settle his family in Singapore and make a decision to apply for Singapore PR.

Having heard from fellow Indian colleagues and friends on their challenges in attaining PR, he was also fully aware that there will be some quota issues that may not be favourable toward him. He was right, since 2007, Mr Abdul has been unfortunately unsuccessful in his Singapore PR application attempts, despite his progress in his professional career and growing his family to now 4 children.

Fast forward to 2018, despite the headway his company has made, Mr Abdul's attempts at attaining PR remained futile and he thought to himself that it is about time he seeked professional help for his 'last' attempt.

How IASG helped : Due to certain complexities with the case profile, we had several consultations with Mr Abdul to understand his profile in depth as well as to formulate initial strategies. During these sessions, we shared with him the various government metrics used and the strong points that he already had but were not reflected sufficiently.  We also assured him that we will take over all the paperwork and documenting so that he can focus on steering his company forward. This hand-holding approach was exactly what he needed as majority of his time and attention were required on his business.
