As you can see, submitting a PR is not just filling up a form. There are many areas and aspects that we look into to ensure that our clients have the highest approval rate. It’s all about attention to details!

ARE YOU THAT FOREIGN TALENT THAT SINGAPORE IS AFTER?

Singapore, like rest of the world was much affected due to the pandemic. As a country with no natural resources, Singapore needs to attract foreign talents to tap onto their skills and expertise in related fields. This approach has helped to transform Singapore into a well-known global business hub with stable and robust economy.

 

However, recent travel curbs and job losses brought about by the coronavirus pandemic have pushed foreigners and expats from the global business hub with a sharp drop of 2%. Certain industries and sectors are in high demand and governments are going all out to retain these talents currently residing in Singapore as they will help to rebuild back Singapore’s economy.
