Re: Ex-PR, thinking of moving to Singapore

You renounced PR at age of 17 just before you were due for NS. This is a “death sentence” for any future application for “passes” in Singapore.

Good luck. You can try to look for a job here and let us know if you are successful in your EP application.

Is there a process for her when she arrives?
No there is no workaround apart from having a tourist visa for 30 days.

Re: PR rejected at first time

You don’t need a PR to stay with your mother. You can have LTVP or student pass to do so.

Re: PR Application for Child

A related but different question.

A SC + EP couple having DP boys. Can the SC sponsor to apply the DP boys for PR? Will ICA reject the PR application and request the SC to apply SC for boys instead?
