It may be examples like that which may have made ICA to tighten up the policies. But as long as they stay in SG permanently and contribute to SG, it is still OK rather than someone who has 2-3 PR's/Citizenship's and suddenly leave SG for good.tush222 wrote: ↑Tue, 01 Sep 2020 1:25 pmThanks for your inputs,
I am an Australian citizen by conferral.
Just wondering to ask regarding your comment on the " perceived as a PR collector" I have a colleague who is PR for last 20 years but not willing to take citizenship. So why SG government not forcing those PR holders to take Singapore citizenship?
Also to clarify PR collector is someone who has PR or SC or 2 or more countries. Is your colleague having PR of 2 or more countries? I dont think so. Also in your case, you already have been granted Aus CZN and now you are trying to apply for SG PR and hence you may be viewed as a collector. So it is not right to compare your case with your colleague.
Also to note there was sometime during REP renewal, PR holders are encouraged to take up citizenship. If that was offered and they didnt take up, then if ever in future there are put in a situation where they are out of SG for few years, etc- it will be close to impossible to get SC in future. ICA remembers all that has happened in one's application along the way.
