well, do take some time and read up the ICA website @ ICA - Home - Immigration & Checkpoints Authority of Singapore - all the required info is there, including the pre-requisites for PR

Cheers

carltan: don't give wrong info

It is not the company who assesses you for PR.

It is ICA, and the company doesn't do any sponsorship, like other countries

after 2 years to 3 years, you submit the forms to ICA, with a cover letter from the employer, and the employer's role is limited to the cover letter and endorsement only, though you can bypass that as well.

A few companies will claim otherwise and find innovative ways to bond the employee or hold the employee hostage.

Don't fall for it ..

You can't apply for PR immediately. It doesn't work like that. You've got to be here first on a work permit before the govt would consider you for PR.

singaporerajan: I don't know if you are soliciting here ..

But, of late, EDB hiked the Investor route to more than the 2 mil

Your info is outdated

Your second suggestion of PR after 18 months don't fly

Pray, how do you submit 3 years of Singapore income tax returns, when you are here for 18 months ?

Well, ICA will accept the application, but your chances go down drastically unless you are earning - S$ 28,000 A MONTH

Good luck though ..

Allow me to hop in.

Please note carefully on what type of work visa you have if you are in Singapore and heading for PR.
Work visa like P1, P2, Q1 and S Pass can lead you to PR, but not Work Permit, which I believe nobody here would be under Work Permit Scheme.

good luck!

wesmant: not so fast ..

ICA does allow Work Pass holders to apply for PR .. and their approval rate, based on their country of origin, sometimes is pretty high actually

From ICA website:

(a) Spouse and unmarried children (below 21 years old) of a Singapore Citizen
(SC)/SingaporePermanent Resident (SPR)
(b) Aged Parents of a SC

ICA - Apply for Permanent Residence

Ecureilx: yes, work "pass" can lead to PR after some years of living in Singapore. But not "work permit". You know what I mean by "permit". I believe nobody here would go to Singapore by "work permit". I was just trying to clarify the right terms to use
