Regarding NS, although you fulfilled the full-time service (the most important part) technically you skipped at least some of the recurrent training, I assume. Maybe/probably that won't matter, but NS doesn't actually end at age 20 or thereabouts.
If you have to pick up NS recurrent training (still young enough), I'd make sure ICA knows you're willing, in a letter.
You could also ask the Singapore High Commission/Embassy whether you could apply for an LTVP from overseas if PR doesn't work out, or if you prefer. The LTVP now allows subordinate employment in Singapore with a Letter of Consent, just like the DP. You can't start your own business or be self-employed, though. But it's easier to get than PR.
OK, the first point is a statement of fact with no particular controversy, one would hope. I described the fact that NSmen have ongoing responsibilities for several years after full-time national service. Much more information is available from MINDEF here, including details on how overseas resident NSmen must stay connected. Importantly the original poster served his full-time NS, but I pointed out (correctly) that he (apparently) did not fulfill subsequent responsibilities. It would not be accurate to say that he fulfilled all his NS responsibilities. (Or, more precisely, he did not fulfill all the NS responsibilities a Singapore citizen male, with an intact citizenship, would have had. This is not a criticism.)Tell me where did you find this facts about ex Singaporean ability of applying PR or for that matter is your advise based on hearsay ? Those in bold are very questionable
While this is true, there is no indication whether they would give an ex-citizen PR again but we are aware of ex-citizens returning on EPs.For example, in May, 2014, Singapore's Manpower Minister was asked whether former citizens and former PRs -- specifically those who had withdrawn their CPF balances -- could return to Singapore to work. He said that evaluations will be done to determine their suitability, and that the government will look into their track record and history before making a decision.
More specifically, as PR is meant as a means/stepping stone to Citizenship in it's concept, it is extremely doubtful that PR would ever be entertained. So it would be silly to infer that they will be able to get it. Remember, they don't read for nuances but whether or not it's been done. That's why we try to stay with anecdotal evidence when possible.There are several factors to be kept in mind regarding the renunciation of your Singapore citizenship. This move can have far-reaching implications and the decision must be made after careful thought and scrutiny. Once the decision to renounce Singapore citizenship is made, there are documents to be submitted and procedural guidelines to be followed. Detailed below is all that you would need to know about renouncing your Singapore citizenship.
Implications of Singapore Citizenship Renunciation
If you are thinking about renouncing Singapore citizenship, it is important to think of the implications of this decision. According to the Singapore Immigration and Checkpoints Authority, once your declaration for renunciation is registered:
You will cease to be a citizen of Singapore.
Citizen benefits such as subsidies in health-care, education, taxation, employment and other privileges will cease to be applicable.
There is no provision for reinstatement.
There is also no assurance that you can continue to work or reside in Singapore as a foreigner on any type of employment permit or as a Permanent Resident.
