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
