Questions regarding REP renewal

Post by russelmor » Sun, 09 Aug 2020 9:35 pm

based on what I read here, PRs (under PTS scheme?) who move and work overseas usually get their REP renewal rejected. My question is how about PRs who work overseas but have previously served NS? Do they also get their renewal rejected as easily or do they have an easier time renewing their REP when working overseas considering they have served NS?

some info about myself: applied for PR as a foreign student and just got it (some of you might remember me), so im a first gen PR who needs to go for NS and no one else in my family is a PR. Reason for asking this is because im planning to go overseas for uni and wondering if its gonna be hard for me to renew my REP if i decide to work overseas after uni

Thank you in advance!

In all cases it's best to show strong ties back to Singapore. Family based PR''s tend to find it easier (I renewed overseas once and had no issues renewing again for 10 years in 2007 after being out for many years) but I had family here.
