Yep. Government doesn't revoke PR's or reject REP renewal willy-nilly. You're officially sponsored by the government, permanently settled, often with your entire immediate family & possibly a home owner (well, leasee
) having contributed significant assets into public housing. As a PR you've potentially served in the Army. Having a steady job, living in SG & generally staying out of trouble, the government will maintain your status.
Conversely, work pass holders of any kind has zero personality in SG, being 100% the responsibility of the company employing them. It's just business. Renewals are never guaranteed.
