ICA assesses each and every application holistically. So, what exactly are they looking for?
In some cases, It's not about what you have submitted according to the checklist. Many or most of our APPROVED clients have submitted as many as 30 supplementary documents in their application that are not stated under the mandatory checklist.
Family Member or Spouse is a Singaporean or Singapore PR. However, married to a Singaporean does not guarantee you a PR but giving the officer a factor to consider your intent of staying as you have family roots here.
This is a requirement stated in the FORM 4A. Stating “NA” Not Applicable or leaving it entirely blank might not help in your PR application. Joining any random association or organisation for the sake of applying PR might jeopardize the entire process too. What to join? Which one to join? Needs to be carefully suggested by our specialist in order to secure a higher approval rate for your PR.

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!
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.
Buying insurance and property, doing multiple donations and volunteering are things of the past to be done for your Singapore PR. As you can see above, there are up to 20 areas you have to work on to secure your quota. Can you keep up with the ever-changing requirements from ICA? Want to know what are the things you have been missing out in your PR application?
