Are you eligible for Singapore PR after checking the requirements? Congratulations! It is time to compile all the necessary documents for your PR application. You can visit our website to check on the required paperwork if you are unsure what to submit. 

Please ensure the information provided are accurate and up to date before submitting them promptly. If any documents are not in English, you must get them translated. The ICA has specified that it only accepts translations from three specific places:

  1. The high commission or embassy of the country that issued the document;
  2. A notary public in Singapore or the country that issued the document;
  3. A private translator attested by one of the above places.

Do present yourself as an ideal candidate

Remember, you are vying for PR status with numerous other candidates. So you will want to ensure you stand out from the crowd. An excellent idea is to apply for PR with your family to show you are committed to laying down roots in Singapore. Conversely, if you are an individual applicant, consider highlighting your contributions to the community (i.e. volunteerism) and how well you have assimilated into Singapore society and its culture.

Do not provide false information

We appreciate your enthusiasm for becoming a Singapore PR and understand why you want to present yourself as an ideal candidate. With that said, you should never resort to underhanded measures to stand out. Such actions are a form of fraudulence and will result in severe consequences, including rejection of your PR application and legal actions. So always be truthful and accurate when providing the required information. If you are unsure about anything, consult an expert before submitting your PR application online.

Do not procrastinate

We recommend applying for PR as soon as possible if you believe you have an excellent chance of getting approval. It is a known fact that Singapore is facing an ageing population. As a result, the government is looking to bridge that gap by welcoming younger expats to the country to mitigate the impact on the workforce. So while age might not be the sole determining factor, it can still play a critical role in the success of your PR application.

Do not worry and consult a PR application agency
