Is it possible to lose PR even after national service?

Postby kma88 » Thu, 26 Feb 2015 10:39 am

For a second generation male PR who has served national service (but does not take up citizenship), would he possibly lose or unable to renew his PR status under these circumstances?

- Say after NS he goes overseas to study and then work, and stays overseas for an extended period of time (5, 10, 15 years), during which time his REP is up for renewal

- a recession hits Singapore after NS and he is unemployed

I have asked ICA previously and they just gave me a standard response - "will be based on the individual's merits"

REP renewal now for long term absentee PR's seems to be tricky - regardless of whether NS has been done.
