Do you know what the acronym PR stands for? If not it is "Permanent Residence". You do know what residence means, correct? So how do you think you can have PR unless you are resident in the country giving your PR?
Well, Australia, Canada and NewZealand give PR without even visiting.... not to mention marrying a citizen or working there. I know i should have work to maintain that status but for a start i was wondering if i can get before residing there....
Let me tell you why countries like Australia, Canada and New Zealand give PR without you being a resident first.
1. They are big-ass/very young countries with many abysses void of human in places they are dying to populate.
2. The condition of their PR to you is that you uproot and move within 6 months upon approval (number of months may vary depending on what scheme you get your PR on and which country).
3. Different countries, different rules. Canada has stopped (or, has not been) granting foreign spouse of citizens on PR unless they physically reside there. Even if s/he gets approved, the family has 6 months to uproot and move back.
So yeah, Singapore is a bloody-small country but with heavenly lifestyle. Heavenly part might vary to some people - but hey, safety, cleanliness, low tax, consistent climate, cheap labour force to make many things cheap, etc etc etc.
