Singapore PR Application Approvals - Mid-2019 Stocktaking

 

We have come to the midpoint of 2019 and looking back, the first 6 months of the year has been eventful for IASG and our clients. As at end June, we have seen a record number of PR and Citizenship approvals in the firm compared to the year before, with a large portion of approvals coming from our Indian clients as well.

This came as a surprise, considering the highly competitive quotas available for Indian applicants. We also note that there have been increased approvals for applicants with certain specific skill-sets from the few industry and sectors mapped for growth and talent development. They include, but not limited to applicants from the Information Technology, Banking & Finance, as well as Engineering industries to name a  few.

While the Singapore Government reviews all cases holistically, we can also attribute the success we bring for our clients down to a few key factors:

1) We put considerable time understanding each of our customer profile

2) We invest emphatically on research in relation to understanding Singapore's short, middle, and long term economic and talent requirement - which is detrimental to strategizing each application

 

How to Evaluate Your Chances of Getting PR in Singapore?

 

 

Step 1 – Understand Annual Quotas and Selective Immigration Policy

With approximately 30,000 quotas annually set aside for new Singapore Permanent Residences, the Singapore Government adopts highly stringent yet strategic sets of parameters in evaluating potential candidates for approval.

These parameters are reviewed holistically and there is no single parameter that is more important than another – contrary to popular belief that the Singapore Government only evaluates applicants based on their income ceiling.

Singapore’s Selective Immigration policy is built on a firm notion that views immigrants not only as a booster for the local workforce but also as a solution to address our rapidly ageing population. While the government has put in place policies aimed at increasing our birth rates, at present, Singapore remains open to controlled immigration in order to fill the population gaps, as documented in the Population White Paper.
