Coming back to Singapore after renunciation

Postby Randomguy21 » Fri, 29 Mar 2019 11:25 pm

So I am an Indian passport currently 15, going to be 16 in June. About 3-4 years ago. I had to renounce my PR because my dad's job got shifted to KL. At the time of application my parents did not know what PR was and what it did, therefore they applied PR for me. I have lived in Singapore for almost 11 years and I really love it. When I left Singapore, it felt like leaving a 2nd family because of all the strong connections I had with friends and my neighborhood there. We renounced PR because studying in KL meant I would graduate here and move to College before 21. So hypothetically, if I wanted to work or live in Singapore again, in the future, is there any chance, any thing I could do to live or work there again? Please help me. I have been asking and thinking about this question ever since I left Singapore. It is my parents fault for applying PR without knowing. Is there any fine or time in prison I can spend to live on Singapore? I consider it my first home next to my nationality home. Please let me know if you have any ideas.

Possibly come back and immediately register for NS (before reaching 16.5) but whether or not they call you up is another story. If they do, you would have to do your NS but without any safeguards or assurances from the government that you would be allowed to regain your PR.

Actually, without your parents here as PRs, even if you did your NS, you still wouldn't be able to regain PR as your PR was under sponsorship of you parents. without them as sponsor and under the age of 21, you would be out of luck. After the age off 21 you would have to gain PR based on your own qualifications (there is no guarantee that by doing NS you could regain it. However, without doing it, you've got no chance in hell of getting it back. It's even doubtful you would be able to get a work pass.

I already assumed they gave it up, my typing ins't the greatest anymore and 'with' should have been 'without' (which I've now changed). It's complicated by the fact that your parents have screwed you instead of screwing the Singapore government like they were trying to do. Much like the vast majority of your countrymen when they come here. Frankly, I doubt that you will find a viable solution. The best you will get is doing NS and then hoping at some time in the future once you have a saleable skillset, you might try to come back on an EP but it's doubtful.

Once again another son has become the ultimate victim of the parents schemeing ethics.

Focus on your studies and career. It's a big world.
I not lawyer/teacher/CPA.
You've been arrested? Law Society of Singapore can provide referrals.
You want an International School job? School website or http://www.ISS.edu
Your rugrat needs a School? Avoid for profit schools
You need Tax advice? Ask a CPA
You ran away without doing NS? Shame on you!
