Paid Thousands for Your Singapore PR Application?
Have you (or know of someone who) paid exorbitant fees to an "agency" to complete your application for Singapore Permanent Residency(PR), and yet still had application rejected?
In recent years, Singapore has seen a spike in the number of such agencies, or Professional Immigration Firms in Singapore, where their sole business is in consulting with foreigners who are working in Singapore and have a need for a Singapore PR status.
Some of these companies even claim to greatly assist with an applicant’s chances of success, with some even boasting up to “98% Success Rates”.
All applications for Singapore PR are assessed holistically based on all aspects of an applicant's profile, and is up to the discretion of the ICA to approve or reject an application. Engaging an agency to prepare your application can improve neatness and clarity, but does nothing in influencing the ICA on favoring your application over others.
Foreigners who wish to apply for Singapore Permanent Residency can do so by applying online on the ICA website. The entire process, if briefed properly prior to commencing your 48-hour submission time frame (refer to the ICA's Self-Explanatory Notes), but should take no more than 2 hours to submit.
