While there is no easy way or shortcut to getting a permanent residency in Singapore, the most common way is through the Professionals/Technical Personnel and Skilled Worker Scheme (PTS) for foreigners already working and contributing in Singapore.
The other way will be through the Global Investor Programme (GIP), which is catered for foreign investors, with strict qualifying criteria for it. To find out more, do reach out to us.
There will be a S$100 processing fee payable for each application at the point of submission. Do take note that the processing fee is non-refundable.
If your application is successful, you will need to pay fees for your entry permit, identity card and entry visa (applicable to those who need it).
There is no fixed processing time for all applications. Generally, it takes about four to six months to process and it depends on the complexity of the case. The application may take a longer duration.
