Singapore : Celebrating Progress Through Diversity

 

 

With the euphoria of Singapore's recent bicentennial commemorative S$20 note dying down, we can take a step back and reflect on the luminaries who made modern Singapore what it is today.  These individuals displayed resolute strength and grit to carve out a better life for themselves and their families. Interestingly, they all had one thing in common - all were immigrants.

Be it for commerce or cultural exchanges, Singapore's geographic locality and safe harbour has contributed much to her growth. Throughout time, Singapore has always been the port of call in the region. Today, it still is. 

As of June 2018, close to 40% of residents in Singapore are foreigners. With a country that does not have natural resources, Singapore has to look to human capital to propel its economic engine forward - and that is exactly what the Selective Immigration policy is set out to do - to get the right profiles of candidates in via Permanent Residence or Citizenship.

Singapore : Rethinking Immigration

 

 

We are at the mid-point of 2019 and one of the top client concerns we face as an inbound-Singapore immigration firm is whether the Singapore Government has slowed down or perhaps ceased issuing Singapore PR / Citizenship approvals.

Having heard many negative news from their peers and friends, we could not blame them.

 

What we can learn from Britain, U.S and Japan
As Immigration professionals, we infer to lessons which enforces what the Singapore government has planned well in advance.

The post-brexit vote from 2016 caused a sudden and forced reduction in Britain’s migrant worker numbers – becoming a cause for concern. The International Monetary Fund (IMF) then concluded in a report that advanced economies such as Britain, the US and Japan may risk being overwhelmed by their ageing populations, should they not be flexible to immigration.

With a low birth rate thrown into the mix, it is no different for Singapore. How then would this impact existing Singapore PR / Citizenship applicants?
