    The criteria in selecting the right candidates for Singapore Citizenship is even more vital to the country as compared to Permanent Residency for Citizenship involves a reflection of the kind of individuals whose values and merits matches that of the country. It is important for you to fully understand some of the contributing factors affecting your application. These includes but are not limited to:

    Age
    In view of the official retirement age of 65 years old, you will be assessed on your ability to provide a significant contribution to the economy and/or society for a period of time. Younger candidates provides time and youth on their side, older candidates brings about a wealth of knowledge and experience as well.
     
    Length of Physical Stay in Singapore
    One of the ways the Singapore Government assesses your commitment to be considered for Citizenship is the length of time you have spent as a Singapore PR here. While you may apply for Citizenship after 1 year of attaining PR, your familiarity with the local community and culture will play a big part in approvals.
     
    Education
    As a progressive nation, Singapore looks toward well-balanced candidates that are proficient in both academic and professional experience in the respective industries and sectors. Conversely, technical qualifications will also be heavily considered for skilled-specific positions.
     
    Industry & Employment
    As a global hub for various key sectors, employment and expertise in such sectors may be the difference in granting you Citizenship. The favoured sectors changes dynamically according to the economic, social or even technological requirements of the country.
     
    Income & Economic Contribution
    While many would assume that the income bracket is the key driver for approvals, it is imperative that you understand the importance of a holistic contribution. Regardless of your position, all manner of contribution counts. You will also be assessed on your future earning potential and spending power within Singapore.
     
    Kinship and Family Ties
    If you already have existing family and relatives that are Singapore PRs or Citizens, you may stand a stronger chance as it is generally favoured for family circles to keep within close proximity and to further sink in their roots into an ever-growing and expanding multiracial society in Singapore.
     
    Social Integration
    In addition to economic contribution, as a small country, contribution to society has been seen lately as a key factor in applications. Be it monetary contributions, or volunteering of time and effort, your integration efforts with the society indicates a strong desire to blend into our culture and norms.
    Special Commendations
    If you have accumulated special commendations, awards and recognition on a professional or personal level, you can use these accolades to gloss your application and showcase what makes you different from other candidates.
     
    Talent
    Special talents and skill sets will give you a unique edge. Depending on what these talents are, you will be assessed on how this talent can elevate yourself and the community. For example, such talents may include but not be limited to individuals who have a track record in sporting and/or artistic excellence.
