Singapore PR

Thinking of getting the Singapore PR (Permanent Residence)..googling around see what people say..

Found out one interesting thing. here." military service, which is compulsory on your sons..:".. all male Singapore citizens and permanent residents are liable to register for national service upon reaching 16 and a half years of age. They must serve two years when they are 18. This is followed by 40 days of Operationally Ready National Service every year until they are 50, for officers, and 40, for other ranks.

another condition to be PR. " had been living and working in Singapore for at least six months"..last time when work for deloite should have apply for PR..

Being a PR, one can also get loan to buy property in the country..

As for kids school, PR still go behind citizen in term of preferences..

CPF is compulsory for employeer and employer..

When buying property, permanent residents are only allowed to buy second-hand units of government HDB flats while only citizens can purchase new ones

Singapore PR Types

1. Working Professional

Work for 6 months in Singapore, meaning able to show the 6 months salary slips.

2. Investor Scheme

Investing in business for 1 to 3 millions.

3. Foreign Artistic Talent

..talent for arts, photography, dance, music, theatre, literature and film,.. must be a well recognized artist in your own country, preferably with an international "ah niu"

4. Landed Permanent Residence (LPR) notch education or professional background... top 1% of your competitive landscape on a global basis..e.g. degree or a PhD from Stanford University
