Continued Social Integration During Challenging Times

With the euphoria and dust of Singapore's General Elections 2020 (GE2020) over, the key take-away surrounding inbound Singapore immigration in our opinion is this :

 

1) Much needs to be done to balance foreign talent requirements, particularly, PMETs

2) Foreign Talent continues to remain critical to complement the local talent pool

3) Foreign Talent here must make attempts to integrate into society wholeheartedly

 

Post GE2020, we have received increased inquiries from foreigners looking to time their Singapore PR / Citizenship applications. While many are familiar with the documentation and processes, they are also concerned about the lack in Social Integration opportunities that can help bolster their application.

 

Are there still available social integration opportunities amidst this pandemic?

Fake loan schemes were another common tactic as scammers got away with at least $41.3 million in total between January and March this year.
